Van Jones wants forgiveness, grace and empathy to be at the forefront of criminal justice reform. The social entrepreneur/CNN political contributor created "The Redemption Project" as a step in that direction, an "attempt to put some medicine into our very sick system," he says. The eight-part series offers a rare glimpse into the restorative justice process, with each episode following the victim, or surviving family members, of a life-altering crime as they journey to meet face-to-face with their offender in the hopes of finding answers or some sense of healing. Jones serves as a guide for viewers throughout the transformational process.

If anyone knows how to come out on top in a murder case, it's Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi. As a prosecutor with the Brooklyn District Attorney's office for two decades, Nicolazzi amassed a 35-0 record in the Homicide Bureau and established a flawless reputation for exposing the truth, while remaining a steadfast advocate for victims. Her expertise carries over to her role in "True Conviction," a six-episode series that follows Nicolazzi as she travels across the country to reveal how top prosecutors tackled their toughest cases. She visits crime scenes, examines cases through the eyes of prosecutors, and meets with key figures at the center of each case. The goal, she says, is to bring these true crime stories to life and tell them in a way that hasn't been done before.
