Conviction is a legal drama series that debuted on ABC in October 2016. It stars Hayley Atwell (Marvel's Agent Carter) as the daughter of a former Unites States president who heads up an organization that investigates criminal cases in which a wrongful conviction is suspected. The series also stars Eddie Cahill (Miracle, Friends), Shawn Ashmore (The Following), and Merrin Dungey (The King of Queens). Conviction is produced by Liz Friedlander (The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars) and Liz Friedman (Xena: Warrior Princess, House, Orange is the New Black). The first episodes of Conviction did not draw big audiences, and prospects for a second season looked grim in the fall of 2016.
