Conviction (ABC 2016, Hayley Atwell, Eddie Cahill)

Published

on

Legal drama series Conviction has an interesting premise, Hayes Morrison is the lawyer daughter of a former president of the USA. When the series begins Hayes has a difficult choice to make, jail time for drugs possession or joining the firm of her arch rival District Attorney Wayne Wallis. It’s not really a difficult choice of course as there is no chance she is going to choose jail time. Especially as her mother is currently campaigning for the Senate.

Hayes begins working for Wallis and his Conviction Integrity Unit where she specialises in turn over cases – digging out facts wherever there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction. At the same time she knows she needs to rebuild bridges with her powerful family.

Each episode focuses on a different case that is making headline news, the Unit has just five days to come to a conclusion on the case and decide whether justice was served or not.

Fabulous to see Hayley Atwell step straight into the lead of another show after the demise of Agent Carter. There is a strong dynamic between her character and Wayne Wallis played by rising star Eddie Cahill.

Despite a strong enough concept ABC pulled the plug after it’s initial run of 13 episodes.
