Conviction is a fast-paced, character-oriented story focusing on young assistant district attorneys in New York who are confronted with tough, high-profile cases that challenge their limited experience -- and force them to mature quickly or be overwhelmed.

The show is a high-octane rush that will take the popular legal genre to the next level and offer stories crafted by a veteran storyteller and his creative team.

Conviction is created by Dick Wolf, Law & Order's powerful creator, and while this is not a direct spinoff of Law & Order, Stephanie March from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit crosses over to this show as her same character, but now Bureau Chief Alexandra Cabot.

Theme song: "Destiny" by Syntax
Song in the promo commercial: "All Will Be Well" by The Gabe Dixon Band.
