For Life Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creator: Hank Steinberg
Stars: Christopher Mormando, Matt Dellapina, Felonious Munk
Sure, the new series from executive producer 50 Cent has weekly cases, grave-looking judges, confident prosecutors and an emotional defense attorney, but that’s where the similarities to the likes of “Law & Order” and “Bull” end. “For Life” (premieres Tuesday, 10 EST/PST, ★★★ out of four) is based on the true story of wrongfully convicted Isaac Wright Jr., who spent years of his unjustly incarcerated life getting his law degree, helping his fellow inmates and, eventually, proving his own innocence.
In a lawyer show that has all the hallmarks of business-as-usual yet questions the system it portrays, 50 Cent and creator and executive producer Hank Steinberg (“Without a Trace,” “The Last Ship”) crafted a novel procedural for broadcast TV. “For Life” asks its audience to engage with more than just a mystery of the week, finding a new way into a genre that has a tendency to become stale.
There’s a genuinely intriguing story at the heart of “For Life,” ABC’s new legal procedural. But it’s buried under a fair amount of frenetic drama that tends to obscure its most interesting ideas.
The show, executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, is based on the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., a wrongfully convicted man who later oversaw his own appeal from prison as well as defending other inmates. Nicholas Pinnock plays Aaron, a Wright figure who we meet after he’s already been put away and committed himself to the project of defending himself and others. This somewhat breathless plunge into the story bypasses a great deal of setup that the show later attempts to catch us up on through exposition that feels misplaced; simply explaining to us how our protagonist found himself where he is in something less brisk than a montage might have been in order.
