TV show description:
From creator David Elliot, who executive produces with Danny Strong and showrunner Adam Armus, the Proven Innocent TV show is a legal drama that centers on Madeline Scott (Lefevre), a resolute attorney on a lifelong quest for justice. When she was just 18, Madeline was wrongfully convicted of murder, along with her brother, Levi (Smith).
Today, no one knows better than Madeline how essential to justice is to set free innocent people. To that end, she and her partner, Easy Boudreau (Hornsby), lead an underdog defense team, dedicated to overturning unjust convictions.
Madeline’s bond with Easy runs deep. He helped her attain her freedom after she served 10 years in prison. Rounding out their team are investigator Bodie Quick (Kartheiser) and communications director Violet Price (James), who produces a true-crime podcast based on their investigations.
While Madeline’s mission is a noble one, her hard-hitting approach is not without its detractors. The most prominent of these is Gore Bellows (Grammer), the prosecutor who oversaw Madeline’s conviction and is still convinced of her guilt.
Although Bellows is determined to return Madeline to prison, she continues her fight to free the innocent and search for the real killer in her own case.
Episode #13 — In Defense of Madeline Scott, Part 2
With Madeline’s freedom at stake, Easy’s defense hits a bump in the road. The team must band together to focus on solving Rosemary’s murder once and for all before time runs out. Meanwhile, as Bellows closes in, new evidence and old enemies come into play.
First aired: May 10, 2019.
