Fox is betting that the best way to battle "fake news" is with real drama.
On Thursday, the network announced "You the Jury," a new prime-time, unscripted reality show that allows the audience to render a verdict in a civil case.
The series will feature prosecution and defense lawyers arguing ripped-from-the-headlines civil cases, followed by closing arguments from the plaintiff and defendant while sitting across from each other.
Katy Perry and America Ferrera, both known for their strong support of former presidential candidate HRC, are about to be honored by another HRC: the Human Rights Campaign, the United States' largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.
Perry will receive the group's National Equality Award and Ferrera will get its Ally for Equality Award for their advocacy work, with the latter honor presented by Lena Dunham, at HRC's gala dinner in L.A. on March 18, the HRC announced Thursday.
HRC President Chad Griffin broke down a few of Perry and Ferrera's contributions: The "I Kissed a Girl" singer's "compelling advocacy, from the stage to the campaign trail, has had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ people -- and, in particular, young people," he said.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have bounced back from a recent "strained period." The couple is working on their relationship again, according to a March 8 report. (March 8, 2017)
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have bounced back from a recent "strained period" during which she almost filed for divorce and are working on their relationship again, according to a Wednesday report.
They're not back together, People reports, but a source described as close to Garner said the actress has backed off after nearly filing for divorce. "She really wants to work things out with Ben," the source said. "They are giving things another try."
The decision to keep working on it was a mutual one, a separate source said, adding, "There is always a chance of reconciliation."

Looks like Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac's split is for real.
The actress filed divorce documents Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court, according to Page Six. The 32-year-old is seeking primary custody of their daughter, Rose Dauriac, who turned 2 in September.
The "Avengers" star was the one who pulled the plug on the marriage, a Johansson-adjacent source told Us Weekly in January, when the split went public. The two have been separated since summer, with Page Six reporting now that they've had an informal week-on/week-off custody arrangement since then.
Kerry Washington and Alec Baldwin joined James Corden on "The Late Late Show" on Tuesday night in what rapidly became a makeshift dish session about the Trump administration.
"It used to be that on our show we were shocking. We did shocking storylines on 'Scandal,'" Washington reminisced on life before President Trump. "We're like 'Little House on the Prairie' compared to this administration."
But it was Baldwin who, unsurprisingly, had the most to say about Trump and the reception he's received for his send-up of the president on "Saturday Night Live."
It's official: Archie Andrews and his "Riverdale" friends will be back for a second season. The CW announced the renewal of the series on Tuesday.
The new series is based on the characters from the pages of Archie comics. Starring KJ Apa as the famous redhead, "Riverdale" is a darker, broodier look at the denizens of the titular town, and how the mysterious death of Jason Blossom disrupted its wholesome image.
While the CW is no stranger to comic book-based television, "Riverdale" stands apart as a show not rooted in any superhero mythos. Instead of weekly superpowered villains, Archie must contend with high school life, his own aspirations, parental expectations, multiple romantic interests and the aforementioned mysterious murder.
