Legal dramas are a network TV staple, yet the FOX TV schedule has been lacking one for a while. Enter the Proven Innocent TV show. While the premise is intriguing, what verdict will the Nielsen ratings render? Will Proven Innocent be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A FOX TV series, Proven Innocent stars Rachelle Lefevre, Kelsey Grammer, Russell Hornsby, Vincent Kartheiser, Nikki M. James, Riley Smith, and Clare O’Connor. The legal drama follows Madeline Scott (Lefevre), a resolute lawyer on a lifelong quest for justice. When she was just 18, Madeline was wrongfully convicted of murder, along with her brother, Levi (Smith). Now she and her partner (and former defense attorney), Easy Boudreau (Hornsby), lead an underdog defense team, dedicated to overturning unjust convictions. Meanwhile, Gore Bellows (Grammer), the prosecutor who once put her away, is determined to return her to prison.
