JERICHO is about professional wrestling.
There’s a good reason, trust us.
This is a show about the world we live in, and have always lived in, and always will live in. It's about bad things happening that a lot of people think are good things (and vice versa). It's also about journalism and treating entertainment like it’s politics (and vice versa).
★★★★ Gripping, entertaining and mind-expanding – The Scotsman
