'Exhibit A': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything you need to know about Netflix's new true crime series
The documentary series is set to come to Netflix on June 28 and will explore controversial crimes through advanced forensic science
We have spent days, possibly months, binge-watching 'Forensic Files'. The American documentary series, which first came to TV in 1996, had a great and very popular almost cult-like following until the series ended in 2011. The show revealed how forensic files are used to solve violent crimes, mysterious accidents and large-scale breakouts of dangerous diseases. Now, taking this one step further is Netflix's latest crime series titled 'Exhibit A', a series that uses the help of forensic science to explore controversial crime cases and look into how faulty and/or dubious forensic techniques have been in wrongly incarcerating innocent people.
While there is little difference between the shows, 'Exhibit A' will take investigations to the next level by concentrating on the wrongful conviction of innocents – something that the former 'Forensic Files' also dabbled in some of their episodes. If you are a fan of true crime series, 'Exhibit A' is just the pick.
The true crime drama is set to come to Netflix on June 28, 2019.
According to the official synopsis on Netflix, 'Exhibit A' is a true crime series that shows how innocent people have been convicted with dubious forensic techniques and tools such as touch DNA and cadaver dogs. The series explores controversial criminal cases through the lens of questionable forensic science, which is often far less scientific than it appears.

Science, as you will see in the trailer for the first season of 'Exhibit A', is not entirely foolproof. Each episode of the documentary series will delve into a particular forensic discipline and will reveal techniques popularized in true crime shows and detective fiction which are too good to be true. In reality, flawed forensic science is one of the leading factors in wrongful convictions. Through a series of twisting true stories and unforgettable characters, this anthology examines the alarming grey areas of scientific interpretation and how it can be biased and misunderstood by all actors in the criminal justice system.
