Premieres Wednesday, April 26 at 10 PM ET/PT on Investigation Discovery
With news stories of overturned convictions and mistrials, and relentless pleas of innocence from inside prisons, a single question haunts every convict’s family: did they really do it? The search for answers is the central focus of ID’s newest series, “REASONABLE DOUBT,” profiling the gut-wrenching process of reopening a closed case to evaluate findings and either offer the family of the convicted hope for an appeal, or confirm the dark truth that their loved one really is guilty of the most unforgivable crime. To uncover the potentially life-changing truth, two determined investigators approach these controversial cases from two distinctly different perspectives.
Chris Anderson, a retired homicide detective, uses his years of hard-hitting investigative experience to track down witnesses, examine crime scenes and confront the convicted one-on-one, while Melissa Lewkowicz, a no-nonsense defense attorney, scours every detail of the trial and questions anyone who testified – or should have. The two dive headfirst into cases full of mind-bending facts, often uncovering shocking evidence previously overlooked by police – or barred by the court – to help discover if justice was served to the victim and their families. There will be 10 intense episodes trying to confirm if these are true convictions.
