From Emmy-winning documentarian Joe Berlinger ("Paradise Lost" trilogy), "Wrong Man" is a six-episode documentary that dissects the cases of three inmates who may have been mistakenly incarcerated for decades. Investigations headed by renowned civil rights attorney Ronald Ruby, former prosecutor Sue-Ann Robinson, retired NCIS investigator Joe D. Kennedy, and Ira Lee Todd Jr., a member of Detroit's elite Homicide Task Force, uncover new theories, offer alternate suspects, and reveal new evidence that could prove these inmates are not guilty.
