What is The Innocence Files about?

This nine-episode series takes a behind-the-scenes look at how eight innocent people were wrongly convicted of crimes they didn't commit.

Th documentary follows the process that the The Innocence Project battled to help get them out of prison.

The Netflix synopsis reads: "The Innocence Project unravels missteps and deceit in a series on wrongful convictions, exposing the injustice inflicted on victims and the accused.

"These stories expose difficult truths about the state of America’s deeply flawed criminal justice system, while showing when the innocent are convicted, it is not just one life that is irreparably damaged forever: families, victims of crime and trust in the system are also broken in the process."

Split into three different segments - The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution - the show looks at the causes of wrongful convictions like misidentification, misconduct from the prosecution and unreliable forensic science.
