In a story that gained national attention with John Grisham's best-selling non-fiction book, "The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town," this six-part documentary series focuses on two murders that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s -- and the controversial chain of events that followed. THE INNOCENT MAN dives into an alleged small-town conspiracy that sent men to prison for brutal crimes that expects say the could not have committed. Directed by Clay Tweel, THE INNOCENT MAN features new footage, archival video and photos and first-person interviews with with victims' friends and families, Ada residents, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the cases.
