Struggle for Justice OVERVIEW

This TV series presents the stories of wrongfully convicted Canadians.

To be convicted of a crime you did not commit can fundamentally challenge your sense of security in the world.  The experience is an affront to your self-esteem at the deepest level.  It can leave you feeling betrayed by society and isolated even from those closest to you.  This profoundly solitary journey ultimately has no end, since after a wrongful conviction, your life will never be the same.

The aim of the series was to present the personal drama of the wrongfully convicted, while educating the public about the legal system and revealing weaknesses that can lead to false accusations and convictions.  Each episode traced one individual’s case.

I was development writer/director for the series, and produced the pilot and several episodes.
