Netflix has announced a December 14 premiere date for its new six-part true crime docuseries, “The Innocent Man.”
Based on John Grisham’s best-selling non-fiction book, “The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town,” the series tells the story of Ronald Keith Williamson, a man wrongfully convicted of rape and murder who spent 11 years on death row before he was exonerated.
Directed by Clay Tweel, the project features interviews with the victims’ friends and families, residents of the Oklahoma town where the crimes were committed, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the case. Grisham will also appear.
