First Look at Hayley Atwell’s New ABC Drama ‘Conviction’

ABC may have pulled Peggy Carter out of the field, but it certainly isn’t finished with Hayley Atwell.

The same day the network canceled “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” it ordered “Conviction,” a legal drama that stars Atwell as a former First Daughter with a self-destructive streak who’s given a chance to turn her life around. Watch the first promo below.

Atwell plays Hayes Morrison, a brilliant legal mind who, after growing up in the public eye, has become what’s described as “a gorgeous mess.” Arrested for cocaine possession, she’s made an offer by New York District Attorney Wayne Wallis (Eddie Cahill), a former courtroom nemesis: She won’t serve any time if she leads his new Conviction Integrity Unit, which reexamines cases in which there’s a credible suspicion of wrongful conviction.

Already aced with a challenging first case and tough love from Wallis, Hayes also learns that her mother, the former First Lady who’s running for U.S. Senate, is behind her job offer. However, if Hayes quits the CIU, she’s headed straight for jail.

“Conviction” also stars Shawn Ashmore (“The Following”) as Sam Sullivan, Merrin Dungey (“Alias”) as Maxine, Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead”) as Tess Thompson, Manny Montana (“Graceland”) as Franklin “Frankie” Rios, and Daniel DiTomasso (“Witches of East End”) as Jackson Morrison.
