Proven Innocent Picked Up by Universal TV


The new legal drama Proven Innocent has been licensed to Universal TV to air in the U.K. and Africa.

The legal series tells the story of one woman’s fight for the innocence of others, as well as her own. Rachelle Lefevre (Under the Dome, A Gifted Man) stars alongside Russell Hornsby (Seven Seconds, Grimm) and Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, Cheers, Boss).

NBCUniversal International Networks licensed the show from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, in association with Danny Strong Productions, the 13×1-hour series will premiere in the U.K. and Africa on Universal TV from March 2019.

Proven Innocent is an emotional legal drama with justice at the heart,” commented Lee Raftery, managing director for the U.K. and emerging markets and chief marketing and content officer at NBCUniversal International. “Universal TV viewers will be instantly gripped by the strong characters played by Rachelle Lefevre, cast in the role of hero and victim, standing boldly up against hard-as-nails attorney played by award-winning Kelsey Grammer. The subject matter is intriguing and will make exciting TV to watch.”

“We’re delighted that Proven Innocent will be on Universal TV in the U.K. and Africa,” added David Smyth, senior VP of sales and U.K. managing director at Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. “Viewers are certain to be captivated by this unique new courtroom drama with a standout cast, led by Rachel Lefevre and Kelsey Grammer.”
