What’s this show about?
Proven Innocent centers on Madeline Scott, a criminal defense lawyer who fights for the wrongfully convicted. She more than anyone knows what it’s like to be found guilty of a crime you didn’t commit since ten years ago she and her brother Levi were wrongfully convicted of the murder of Madeline’s best friend. Only to be vindicated after spending seven years in prison. So now she along with her team at “Proven Innocent” defend those falsely accused and imprisoned, to give them a chance at a life. While also trying to find the person in whose place she and her brother were put behind bars.
Who’s playing who?
This new legal drama is headlined by Rachelle Lefevre, who will take on the role of justice-seeking Madeline Scott. She’s fierce and relentless when it comes to both proving someone else’s innocence and maintaining her own. With Russell Hornsby staring as Ezekiel ‘Easy’ Boudreau, Madeline’s law partner at the firm as well as the man who was responsible for reversing her conviction. Also part of the “Proven Innocent” team are Bodie Quick, played by Vincent Kartheiser, and Violet Bell, played by Nikki M. James. Quick is the firm’s resident investigator. While Bell is their communications director and runs a true-crime podcast on each case they take on.
Additionally, Riley Smith will be playing Madeline’s brother Levi Scott, who isn’t too pleased with his sister thrusting the spotlight on them again with each new case she takes. Clare O’Connor and Harry Jarvis will portray the younger versions of Madeline and Levi. And last but not least, Kelsey Grammer will take on the role of State’s Attorney Gore Bellows. Madeline’s fiercest competitor in the courtroom as well as the prosecutor responsible for convicting the siblings ten years ago. Previously Brian d’Arcy James was cast in this role.
