What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, Conviction follows attorney Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), the daughter of a former President, as she gets “blackmailed” into joining the Conviction Integrity Unit. It’s an NYC department that re-examines cases when there is suspicion of wrongful conviction. The rest of the cast includes Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, and Daniel Franzese.
Season One Ratings
Hayley Atwell was charming in Marvel’s Agent Carter but the ratings were lousy and the series was cancelled. I think the network was hoping that her fans would help make Conviction a hit. Unfortunately, the ratings were low to start and they’ve gotten much worse. ABC didn’t order any more episodes beyond the initial 13 episode order. That, combined with the terrible ratings, means that it’s very doubtful that Conviction will survive to see a second season. Unfortunately, we may not get official word from ABC until May. My condolences. Better luck next time, Ms. Atwell.
5/12 update: ABC has officially cancelled Conviction after one season. Details here.
