Hayley Atwell’s last ABC series, Marvel’s Agent Carter, lasted two seasons before being cancelled. How will Conviction do in the ratings? Will it be renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
A legal drama series, Conviction follows what happens when attorney Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), the daughter of a former President, gets “blackmailed” into joining the Conviction Integrity Unit. It’s a 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.
