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.
