About Love After Lockup: Innocent After Lockup TV Series
This elevated, three-episode special will premiere on Friday, December 15 at 10:30pm exclusively on WE tv. Every episode follows a different falsely accused exoneree who spent between 15 - 22 years in a maximum-security penitentiary and were subsequently proven innocent. The exonerees are currently at various stages of suing the state or federal government for financial compensation for their time unjustly spent behind bars.
In the United States between 1989 - 2021, there were over 2,800 documented exonerations: an average of 32 per year. With the increased focus on unjust convictions and advancement of scientific procedures, in 2022 there were 238 exonerations, a mind-boggling 644% increase. Love After Lockup: Innocent After Lockup personalizes those heartbreaking statistics of wrongful incarceration in America by telling the remarkable personal journeys of three exonerees who fought for over a decade to vindicate themselves and are now caught in another lengthy fight to receive recompense for lost years.
At the center of each story, alongside the wrongfully accused, we will hear from their families, including the wives and girlfriends whose love sustained their partner through the darkest hours, the reintegration into society, and their present battle for some form of justice.
Love After Lockup: Innocent After Lockup makes real the ephemeral concepts of love, loyalty, and lost lives in the battle for justice against a damaged system; and asks the question "what is justice when all you have known is injustice?"
