Must See TV: Jussie Smollett Trial to be Televised

And HIS Legal Team Made The Suggestion!

CBS is reporting that cameras will be allowed in the courtroom in order to broadcast the criminal trial of "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett.

And dig this: Smollett's attorney, Tina Glandian, actually said she would welcome cameras in the courtroom, saying there has been a lot of leaked misinformation and that cameras would allow the public to "see the evidence and the lack thereof."

After Thursday's hearing, Glandian told reporters that evidence has been presented against Smollett that is "demonstrably false," adding that they would "welcome cameras in the courtroom so that the public and the media can see the actual evidence and what we believe is the lack of evidence against Mr. Smollett and we look forward to complete transparency and the truth coming out."

Smollett has been accused of staging a hate crime against himself and was indicted last week on 16 felony counts.

Best of luck, Jussie. Good luck in prison.
