Sequestered is a tense and suspenseful legal drama created by Aaron Tracy, produced by Mitchell Klebanoff and premiered on Crackle in 2014. The show's storyline revolves around the murder of the Governor of California's son, and the trial that follows. The show has a talented ensemble cast headlined by Jesse Bradford, who plays a jury member named Danny, and the legendary Bruce Davison, who plays the judge overseeing the trial. Danny is an unemployed graphic designer and former drug addict who is selected as a juror for the high-profile case. The trial involves the Governor's son, who was found dead in a hotel room alongside his girlfriend, Veronica (played by Summer Glau).

The pilot episode opens with a heated exchange between the prosecution and defense attorneys, foreshadowing the intense courtroom drama that is to follow. The judge quickly takes control of the proceedings, issuing strict orders to the jury to refrain from discussing the case with anyone outside the courtroom. This includes their family members, friends, and even each other. The jurors are sequestered in a hotel, cut off from the outside world, and monitored 24/7 to ensure they are not exposed to any information that could potentially influence their verdict.

As the trial unfolds, tensions rise amongst the jurors, who come from different walks of life and have varying interpretations of the evidence presented to them. Danny becomes increasingly suspicious of the defense team, who he believes are hiding something from the jury. Veronica's fate also hangs in the balance, as evidence linking her to the murder continues to surface in court. The show's director, Kevin Tancharoen, masterfully builds tension and suspense throughout the season, keeping the audience guessing until the very end.

One of the unique aspects of Sequestered is its blend of legal drama with a political backdrop. The Governor of California is not only directly involved in the trial but is also facing re-election, and his chances of winning are tied to the outcome of this case. The Governor's Chief of Staff, played by Patrick Warburton, is constantly in contact with his boss, urging him to use his influence to sway the jury's decision.

Sequestered also delves into complex themes such as ethics, morality, and justice. The show's characters are forced to grapple with their own beliefs about what is right and wrong, and the lengths they are willing to go to see those beliefs through.

Overall, Sequestered is an engrossing and thrilling legal drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The show's strong performances, intricate plot, and expert direction make it a must-watch for fans of the genre. Although the series only lasted one season, it is a testament to the quality of the show that it remains popular years after its initial release.
