Taking the Stand: Jodi Arias (Series Premiere A&E Thurs 13 Jan 2022)



Jodi Arias takes the stand as she faces the death penalty after her ex-boyfriend was found brutally slaughtered in his bathroom to discuss how she acted in self-defense, and she stays on the stand for an unprecedented 18 days.

Taking the Stand” tells the story of a crime from the unique lens of the accused as they take the witness stand. Hosted by Dan Abrams, each episode covers everything from first-hand defendant testimony, juxtaposed with the contentious cross examination to the final verdict.

There is a reason that taking the witness stand in your own defense is a gamble that very few criminal defendants ever take. In addition to interviews with key members of the investigation, the series features original video from law enforcement, surveillance camera footage, 911 audio recordings, digital forensic evidence and some exclusive interviews and responses from the defendants themselves, to provide an in-depth look at dozens of raw and real cases.

Airdate: Thursday 13 January 2022 at 10.00pm on A&E.
