PROVEN INNOCENT, starring Rachelle Lefevre and Russell Horsby, follows a law firm that specializes in exonerating people who have been presumed guilty.

Here’s what Fox has to say about the new drama:


Studio: Danny Strong Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television
Format: One-hour drama
EP/W: David Elliot
D: Patricia Riggen
EPs/NW: Danny Strong, Stacy Greenberg
Logline: A legal drama set in an wrongful conviction firm. Led by a fierce and fearless female lawyer with a hunger for justice, the team reopens investigations, putting their own lives in danger to exonerate the innocent that were ‘proven’ guilty. Our lead’s motivation comes from her infamous past; as a young adult she was found guilty and later exonerated in a high-profile case in which she became a tabloid sensation, household name and national celebrity. While a hero and a victim to some, her bold and bullish tactics garner her some enemies— one of whom will do anything to see her go down for a crime we know she did not commit. We will watch her defend others as she fights to maintain her own innocence.
Rachelle Lefevre — “Madeline Scott”
Russell Hornsby — “Ezekiel ‘Easy’ Boudreau”
Nikki M. James — “Violet Bell”
Vincent Kartheiser — “Bodie Quick”
Riley Smith — “Levi Scott”
Clare O’Connor — “Young Madeline Scott””

The shows join the already-ordered THE PASSENGE.
