ABC uploaded our first look at ‘Conviction’! What do you guys think? I’ll have screencaptures up in the gallery soon. ETA: Screencaptures from the first look have been added to the gallery, along with a photoshoot photo of Hayley. Enjoy!
In a quick follow up to our last post, ABC has officially greenlit ‘Conviction’ for the 2016-2017 season! At least we still get to see Hayley on our television screens every week 🙂
‘Agent Carter’ star Hayley Atwell has landed another series at the network, the drama “Conviction,” which has officially been greenlit for the 2016-2017 season.
In “Conviction,” Atwell stars as a lawyer and the former First Daughter Hayes Morrison, who is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis (Eddie Cahill), to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.
Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana and Daniel DiTomasso also star. The series was created by Liz Friedman (“Elementary,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”) and director Liz Friedlander (“The Following”), and will be exec produced by Mark Gordon. ABC Studios and The Mark Gordon Company are producing the drama.
Unfortunately, ABC has decided not to renew ‘Agent Carter’ for a third season. While I am pretty upset and dismayed with the news, at least we’ll have ‘Conviction’ to look forward to.
ABC has canceled Marvel drama ‘Agent Carter’ after two seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The second of Marvel’s ABC dramas, while a critical favorite, was never a ratings breakthrough. The Hayley Atwell starrer earned a surprise second season renewal and returned as a “gap” show under former ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee.
Despite heaps of praise from critics, Carter finished its limited run with a 1.4 rating among adults under 50 and 4.3 million total viewers with DVR — both a far cry from Agents of SHIELD. Compounding that, ABC is spinning off popular Agents of SHIELD favorites Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood for Marvel’s Most Wanted, a more natural extension of the already renewed flagship series.
I am slowly getting the site back up to date this month to celebrate our three year anniversary! I can’t believe that much time as flown by but we’re still going, stronger than ever 🙂 I’m going to be updating our gallery with screencaptures from ‘Agent Carter’ soon as well. I hope to get the site back up to date and also add new content so keep checking back regulary!
