TV One’s EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE spotlights the unbelievable true stories of four people who endured this life-altering nightmare-innocent of crimes for which they were arrested and ultimately imprisoned. Premiering Monday, June 4 at 10/9c PM on TV One and hosted by acclaimed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, each one-hour episode of Evidence of Innocence focuses on one wrongfully convicted man or woman – Lisa Roberts, Richard Miles, Melonie Ware and Mark Schand – each faced with the enormous challenge of maintaining faith while awaiting the opportunity to prove their innocence. Locked in cells for years, wrestling with fear, maddening loneliness, suicide-inducing despair, these survivors who somehow endured the struggle to have their cases overturned and regain their freedom, share their riveting accounts with Attorney Crump.

“These stories of redemption after going through horrific circumstances are certain to encourage viewers to face their own personal challenges with renewed resolve.” said Tia A. Smith, TV One Sr. Director of Original Programming and Production.

Attorney Crump, who formerly served as President of the National Bar Association, has dedicated his career to bringing justice to those who are marginalized by the legal system and proves an insightful guide through each Evidence of Innocence journey. Crump served as the lead attorney for the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Alesia Thomas, and is a vanguard in the fight against police brutality.

An Emmy and NAACP Image Award winner, acclaimed television and film producer Rushion McDonald (The Steve Harvey Show, Jamie Foxx, Think Like A Man, Family Feud) of 3815 Media is the series executive producer and creator, in partnership with Jupiter Entertainment. McDonald said that he was moved to create Evidence of Innocence in response to all the national headlines chronicling the racial injustice in America’s justice system.
