Film Screening: "Wrong Man," Season 2 Premiere
February 5, 2020
STARZ, the March on Washington Film Festival, and NYU Washington, DC hosted a special screening of the Season 2 premiere of, "Wrong Man" followed by a panel discussion that featured Joe Berlinger Executive Producer, Catharine Park, Showrunner/Executive Producer, Ronald L. Kuby, Criminal Defense and Civil Rights Lawyer, Sue-Ann Robinson, Defense Attorney, and Ira Lee Todd, Investigator. Serving as moderator for the program was Jamal Simmons, Hill TV.
Emmy winner Joe Berlinger's documentary series "Wrong Man" shows what long-form documentary journalism can achieve. The six-episode documentary series examines the cases of three different inmates who are serving life sentences on murder convictions but who claim innocence.
The real-time investigations uncover new evidence, track down key witnesses, consult forensic experts, and interrogate the incarcerated. The team includes renowned civil rights attorney Ron Kuby, former prosecutor Sue-Ann Robinson, retired NCIS investigator Joe Kennedy, and Ira Todd of Detroit’s elite Homicide Task Force.
After season one, the Supreme Court overturned the murder conviction of Curtis Flowers, who had been tried six times by nearly all-white juries; Christopher Tapp was exonerated from rape and murder charges after serving 20 years of a 30-year sentence; Evaristo Salas will go to into a new trial represented by a pro bono lawyer.
Two of the new season's three cases feature female inmates. Wrong Man season 2 premieres on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 9:45 p.m.
