A window into an America that we rarely see…

- Hindustan Times

Offers an insightful, wildly compelling, and infuriating account of the human cost when the U.S. justice system fails…One of the best true crime shows in recent memory. The Innocent Man isn’t concerned with solving a mystery for mystery’s sake. The heart of the series is the story of these individuals who have been locked up for something they didn’t do, as it forces viewers to see the real, human cost of rushing to judgment.
