Each year, millions of Americans travel abroad and more than 3,000 are imprisoned every year. Many of them are wrongfully convicted, and many of them are told they will never go home again.
From Focus Features and L.A. Times Studios comes the brand-new podcast series, CONVICTED: ACROSS BORDERS. Hosted by famed lawyer and bestselling author, Marcia Clark, we’ll hear straight from the mouths of the men and women who lived through these trials. Through these stories we’ll explore how seemingly benign actions can lead to incarceration in foreign lands, how to navigate different legal systems when you don’t even speak the language, and who one turns to when the closest help is thousands of miles away.
Five unimaginably harrowing stories. Five traumatic fights for freedom. And five incredible true cases with emotional homecomings that have to be heard to be believed.
Convicted: Across Borders is produced by L.A. Times Studios and Treefort Media.
