By Julianna Jackson | Aug 15th, 2016

Mark your calendars for the Conviction SERIES PREMIERE MONDAY OCT 3 10|9c on ABC!  Hayley Atwell (Marvel's Agent Carter)  is back playing a lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison.  She is best known for her wild teenage years in the White House and proclivity to wind up on TMZ. But a cocaine bust is one misstep with consequences this former First Daughter can't dodge. Luckily Hayes' powerful mother, Harper, along with her occasional fling and former boss, Wallace, offer an ultimatum – jail time, or run New York City's new Conviction Integrity Unit. Never one to be controlled, Hayes decides to use the opportunity and her brilliant legal mind to challenge the status quo. Alongside her eclectic and intelligent CIU team, Hayes will do whatever it takes to discover the truth, fighting for those overlooked by a flawed and fractured system.
