Shawn Ashmore Conviction Cast

Shawn Ashmore Joins ABC's Conviction Pilot, Alongside Hayley Atwell

Shawn Ashmore is officially a man of Conviction.

The Following alum will co-star opposite Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell in ABC’s legal drama pilot, our sister site Deadline reports.

Ashmore’s character, Sam, is an assistant district attorney who isn’t pleased that Atwell’s character has taken the job he wants: the boss of Los Angeles’ Conviction Integrity Unit. (Little does he know, she was blackmailed into taking the position.)

Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper will executive-produce the pilot with co-creators Liz Friedman and Liz Friedlander. Friedman wrote the pilot, and Friedlander will direct.
