What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, the For Life TV show is inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr. and stars Nicholas Pinnock, Indira Varma, Joy Bryant, Dorian Missick, Tyla Harris, Mary Stuart Masterson, Boris McGiver, Felonious Munk, and 50 Cent. The series follows the tale of Aaron Wallace (Pinnock), an incarcerated man who becomes a licensed lawyer while still in prison. Wright litigates cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. Wright’s quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to reclaim the life that was stolen from him and to get back to the family he loves – his estranged wife, Marie (Bryant), and his daughter, Jasmine (Harris). Through the window of Wright’s ferocious struggle and complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden (Varma), the series also examines the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems.
Season One Ratings
Will ABC cancel or renew For Life for season two? The network’s struggled to fill the Tuesdays at 10:00 PM timeslot for quite awhile. The ratings are quite low for this series so, I think this one will be cancelled. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on For Life cancellation or renewal news.
