The Innocence Project (2006) - 1x01 - Episode One

Plot Outline
The British Justice System gets it wrong. Fact. The causes are various – police or prosecution misconduct, mistaken IDs, false confessions or witness statements, poor representation, bad science – but when it happens the price is always enormous for those unlucky enough to be wrongly convicted. Under the guidance of Professor Jon FORD (Lloyd Owen), The Innocence Project team, peopled entirely by students, tries to make a difference while still going through the serious business of growing up.

Luke Talbot is in prison for a crime he claims he didn’t commit. Under the guidance of their professor, Jon FORD, a group of dynamic first year law students – BETH, ADAM, NICK, ANDREW and SARAH- review the facts and try to discover new evidence which could set TALBOT free.

The evidence against Talbot relies on a statement given to the police by his cellmate, Ronald Locke. Locke claims that Talbot confessed to him. When the new evidence they find doesn’t seem to be enough, Nick puts himself on the line to get a result.

Nick has troubles of his own. Arrested for selling imported DVDs he is facing a criminal record. He is going to learn the hard way what it means to be one man against the system.
