A 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.
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 before time runs out; as Bellows closes in, new evidence and old enemies come into play.
It is being reported that Fox has cancelled Proven Innocent after one season. The news comes one day after the legal drama aired its freshman finale, which will now act as its series-ender.
The show premiered in February as a mid-season entry but never really gained any traction. Critical reception was decidedly mixed and it struggled to garner a sizable amount of viewers.
Proven Innocent follows Madeline Scott, the head of an underdog criminal defence firm who is on a mission to set innocent people free, as she was once in the same situation. While she may be a hero to some, Madeline's bold tactics are not appreciated by Gore Bellows, the prosecutor who once secured her conviction and still believes in her guilt. But despite Bellows' incessant quest to see her locked up, Madeline puts her energy towards defending others, even while fighting to maintain her innocence and possibly find the real killer in her own case.
