INNOCENT OR GUILTY? STARZ RELEASES "WRONG MAN" KEY ART AND TRAILER
RIVETING SIX-PART SERIES FROM AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER JOE BERLINGER PREMIERES SUNDAY, JUNE 3 AT 9 PM ET/PT
Santa Monica, Calif. - Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), released today the key art and official trailer for its new original series "Wrong Man" set to premiere Sunday, June 3rd at 9PM ET/PT. This groundbreaking six-episode documentary series from Academy Award(R) and seven-time Emmy(R)-nominated and Peabody(R) and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost), examines three different cases of inmates who have been incarcerated for decades and claim they are innocent. The series will uncover new theories, offer alternate suspects and reveal startling new evidence that could prove these inmates are not guilty.
In "Wrong Man," Berlinger's cameras follow a team of esteemed legal, investigative and forensic experts including renowned civil rights attorney Ronald Kuby, former prosecutor Sue-Ann Robinson, retired NCIS investigator Joe Kennedy, and Ira Todd, a member of Detroit's elite Homicide Task Force, as they re-investigate the cases of three inmates who have been locked up for decades and claim they are innocent.
"Wrong Man" is produced by Third Eye Motion Picture Company, Electus and RadicalMedia. Erica Sashin ("Parched," "Belief," "Border Wars") serves as showrunner and executive producer. Berlinger directs two episodes and also executive produces with Chris Grant ("Running Wild with Bear Grylls," "The Toy Box," "Darkness") and Drew Buckley ("Running Wild with Bear Grylls," "The Toy Box," "Darkness") for Electus, along with Ben Silverman ("The Office," "Jane the Virgin," "Marco Polo"). Jon Doran ("Park Bench with Steve Buscemi," "Neighborhood Sessions," "Iconoclasts"), Justin Wilkes ("The Fourth Estate," "MARS," What Happened, Miss Simone?) and Jon Kamen ("Bobby Kennedy for President," "MARS," Hamilton's America) serve as executive producers for RadicalMedia.
Starz retains all domestic multiplatform pay TV and SVOD rights to the series. Global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) retains all international and domestic distribution and home entertainment rights.
