Following positive feedback from viewers who saw the pilot on its Prime Instant Video service, the online retail giant will now produce a full season of the show through its Amazon Studios label.

Created and written by Ben Watkins, it stars Ron Perlman as Judge Pernell Harris, a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart.

Marc Forster, Watkins, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King are executive producers, and Jillian Kugler is co-executive producer.
