Netflix's The Innocence Files is the documentary series that everyone is going to be talking about this month.

Released on April 15, the limited series shines a light on the untold personal stories behind eight cases of wrongful conviction that the nonprofit organization the Innocence Project and organizations within the Innocence Network have uncovered and worked tirelessly to overturn.

The nine-episode series is composed of three compelling parts - The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution.

The stories expose difficult truths about the state of America’s flawed criminal justice system. It also shows that 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.

The Innocence Files is executive produced and directed by Academy Award nominee Liz Garbus, Academy Award winner Alex Gibney, Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams; with episodes also directed by Academy Award nominee Jed Rothstein, Emmy Award winner Andy Grieve and Sarah Dowland.
