Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

This conventional series offers all the criminal twists and legal turns one expects from legal procedurals. Madeline Scott and her team spend time investigating the investigations that led to their clients' wrongful arrests and convictions. Meanwhile, there's lots of quid-pro-quo drama, as both Smith and Gore look for ways to seek retribution against one another. Adding to the drama are the flashbacks of a younger Madeline and Levi's ordeal, which reminds viewers what's driving her. But the stories feel predictable, and as a result, Proven Innocent doesn't deliver anything particularly original.
