Starz's gripping new and original documentary series "Wrong Man" to debut on June 3
The six-episode series, a brainchild of award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger revolves around the lives of three inmates who were jailed for crimes they did not commit
Lionsgate company, Starz, has released art and the official trailer for "Wrong Man", the original series that is going to premiere on June 3 at 9 p.m.
The documentary series, which features six episodes, has been made by Academy Award® and seven-time Emmy®-nominated and Peabody® and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost). The series looks at three separate cases of inmates who have been locked up for years and who all claimed the entire time that they were innocent. Wrong Man will reveal new theories for the cases, look at alternate suspects, and finally show the shocking new evidence that could prove once and for all that these inmates are innocent.
In the series, Berlinger focuses on a team of respected legal, investigative, and forensics experts that includes Ronald Ruby, a civil rights attorney, Sue-Ann Robinson, a former prosecutor, Joe Kennedy, a retired NCIS investigator, and a member of Detroit's elite Homicide Task Force, Ira Todd. The experts take a look at the cases of the three inmates who were jailed for no crime of their own.
Third Eye Motion Picture Company, Electus and RadicalMedia have combined forces to produce this groundbreaking documentary series. The showrunner and executive producer of the series is Erica Sashin. Berlinger has directed two episodes and also executive produces the show with Chris Grant and Drew Buckley from Electus with Ben Silverman. From RadicalMedia, Jon Doran, Justin Wilkes, and Jon Kamen serve as executive producers.
Starz has the domestic rights for the series while Lionsgate has international and domestic distribution and home entertainment rights.
