Every three seconds in the United States, someone is arrested.
Building on our Broadcast Awards nominated Accused, this series follows the lives and legal defences of people who have been arrested and are facing trial for serious crimes across America. Made for A&E Networks, Accused: Guilty or Innocent? is an unprecedented exploration of the emotional and situational challenges involved when your freedom, your reputation, and your family are on the line.
Set in multiple states and featuring a diverse range of contributors charged with serious offences, the series provided the first comprehensive televised documentary portrait of the defence process.
Season 1 ranked both among the top freshman series for A&E and the 2nd best new series in the L+3 fiscal year to date, with the most ethnically diverse audience on the network.
Season 3 delivers 16 more compelling episodes, with Season 4 in production.
