Back when "24" was being promoted, a big deal was made about how it was done in "real time": each one-hour episode covering one hour of a single day. When I heard that, I immediately thought of "Murder One". When it was on, it was also promoted as being done in "real time", but it was each week's episode covering one week of a 24-week arrest/trial. The series was excellent, especially the first season! In fact, Daniel Benzali's work in that first season is among the best I've ever seen in any series. Anthony LaPaglia took over the lead in the second season, and we all know how good he is. But Benzali was so good that LaPaglia's work in the second season was kind of a let-down in comparison. I would snap up the first season in a heartbeat (the second would take a couple of heartbeats).
