Lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell, "Marvel's Agent Carter") is about to accept a job offer from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Connor Wallis (Eddie Cahill, "CSI: NY"), to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family. "Conviction" also stars Shawn Ashmore ("X-Men") as Sam Spencer, Merrin Dungey ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") as Maxine Bohen, Emily Kinney ("The Walking Dead") as Tess Larson, Manny Montana ("Graceland") as Franklin “Frankie” Cruz, and Daniel DiTomasso ("Witches of East End") as Jackson Morrison. "Conviction" joins the CTV lineup via Entertainment One (eOne). From eOne subsidiary The Mark Gordon Company as the lead studio, and ABC Studios, "Conviction" is co-created by writer Liz Friedman ("Marvel's Jessica Jones") and director Liz Friedlander ("The Following"). Friedman and Friedlander executive produce with Mark Gordon ("Grey's Anatomy") and Nick Pepper.
