When it comes to our justice system, nothing is ever black and white. Just ask Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell). Hayes, a lawyer and former first daughter, is a hero – a controversial one. She finds herself in a tricky position, facing jail time for drug possession or accepting a job from her nemesis, New York District Attorney Conner Wallace (Eddie Cahill). In an effort to avoid damaging her mother’s Senate campaign, for better or worse, she accepts his offer. “Conviction,” a compelling, fast-paced legal procedural, debuts MONDAY, OCTOBER 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.
