More cancellation news coming out of ABC today, but this one comes with a good new / bad news scenario for actress Hayley Atwell. The Marvel live action series Agent Carter is done after two seasons, but that leaves Atwell available to star in the new ABC series Conviction which got a series order.
In the new series, Atwell plays a former first daughter who has gone on to be a lawyer who gets into trouble with cocaine. To avoid jail time, she takes a job with the Conviction Integrity Unit and works with her nemesis Wayne Wallis, to overturn cases where there is believed to be a wrongful conviction.
The new series stars Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, and Daniel DiTomasso.
