NEW YORK: Oxygen Media has greenlighted a two-hour documentary that will capture Kim Kardashian West's efforts to free prisoners she believes were wrongly accused. It's a move by the network to expand its true-crime programming.

The project has the working title, "Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project." It comes after her disclosure that she's studying to be a lawyer. 

Last year, she lobbied the White House for clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, who served more than two decades of a life sentence without parole for non-violent offenses. President Donald Trump commuted her sentence and signed bipartisan legislation that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts.

Recently her efforts have managed to secure the release of another inmate who had been incarcerated for nonviolent drug offenses. 47-year-old Jeffrey Stringer, a Miami man, secured an early release from prison after spending over 22 years in jail as part of his life sentence. 

Oxygen said in a statement Kardashian West has dedicated "personal resources" to the cause of reform. In the two-hour documentary, Oxygen will capture Kardashian’s efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system. “Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project” is an exclusive, never before seen look inside her mission to tackle one of America's most controversial subjects.
