“This dramatic new unscripted series explores our contemporary legal system through the lens of Loredana Nesci, a cop turned defense attorney who is anything but what people expect,” said Nena Rodrigue, senior vice president of Original Programming and Production for the Sundance Channel. We think audiences will soak up the behind-the-scenes world of criminal defense.”
