Fox’s legal drama Proven Innocent will receive its UK premiere on Universal TV on Monday March 18th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Proven Innocent follows an underdog criminal defense firm led by Madeline Scott (Rachelle Lefevre), a fierce and uncompromising lawyer with a hunger for justice. There is no one who understands the power of setting an innocent person free more than Madeline. At age 18, she was wrongfully convicted, along with her brother, Levi (Riley Smith), in a sensational murder case that made her an infamous media obsession, a household name and a national cause célèbre. Madeline runs the firm with her partner, Easy Boudreau (Russell Hornsby), the very lawyer who helped set her free after 10 years in prison.
Their team also includes investigator Bodie Quick (Vincent Kartheiser) and communications director Violet Bell (Nikki M. James,), who runs a true-crime podcast that follows each investigation. While a hero and a victim to some, Madeline’s bold and bullish tactics earn her a number of enemies – especially Gore Bellows (Kelsey Grammer), the prosecutor who initially put her away and still believes in her guilt. Despite Bellows’ ceaseless quest to see her behind bars again, Madeline will continue to defend others, even as she fights to maintain her innocence and searches for the real killer in her own case. The drama series was created by David Elliot and is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Danny Strong Productions. Danny Strong, David Elliot and Stacy Greenberg serves as executive producers alongside showrummer Adam Armus.
