ABC Picks Up CONVICTION to Series


ABC may have cancelled AGENT CARTER, but they’re staying in the Hayley Atwell business with the order of CONVICTION.

Atwell stars as Carter Morrison, the former daughter of a US President. “Now she is a gorgeous mess, with a brilliant legal mind but a self-destructive streak. Arrested for cocaine possession, she gets an offer from Conner Wallis, the NY District Attorney: no jail time if she heads his new Conviction Integrity Unit that re-examines cases where there’s credible suspicion of wrongful conviction. Hayes resents having to take the offer, but is not totally upset about working with Conner. He was her former courtroom nemesis, who she still finds rather sexy.”

Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore and Emily Kinney co-star.
