Investigation Discovery (ID) has greenlit “Reasonable Doubt,” which explores controversial convictions through an objective lens, for a fourth season. The logline: With their parallel expertise of the law, hosts retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defense attorney Fatima Silva know that the justice system doesn’t always get it right. As cries of innocence reverberate through prison cells across the country, this series sets out to help families who are desperate for someone to listen to their evidence and theories, convinced that their loved ones were wrongfully convicted of murder. Each episode features re-examination of a murder case, where the two pore over evidence, interview witnesses, and consult experts previously overlooked by police or barred by the courts to hopefully reveal the truth.
“The work that Chris and Fatima do on ‘Reasonable Doubt’ is beyond admirable, and perhaps even, a necessary additive as we evaluate the checks and balances needed on our own justice system,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “The incredibly compelling aspect of their work is that they are solely driven by a desire for truth to reveal if the right person is indeed behind bars, serving as advocates for those who refuse to let their convicted loved ones be forgotten by society.”
“Reasonable Doubt” actively looks for potential wrongful conviction cases to investigate for next season. Viewers and fans are advised to submit ideas on questionable courtroom convictions at the following link: ID Show Submission Form.
