Conviction Preview Offers A Law Procedural And More Hayley Atwell

ABC has released a three-minute preview of Hayley Atwell's new show, Conviction. It adheres to what we know so far: Atwell plays a former first daughter whose bad girl ways lead her to a job at the Conviction Integrity Unit, where she and a team of lawyers investigate felons who were possibly wrongfully convicted. The team includes former Iceman Shawn Ashmore and The Walking Dead's Emily Kinney. And while it suggests much of the show, the preview also spoils the ending of the pilot. So tread cautiously … provided you care about such things.


It seems uninspired, despite the fact Atwell is someone who should be leading a TV show. Also: I laughed when a title card credited "a producer of Grey's Anatomy" as being involved.
