Conviction Series Hayley Atwell

ABC Orders Conviction Drama to Series, Starring Agent Carter's Hayley Atwell

Despite Agent Carter‘s fresh termination, Hayley Atwell will be on ABC next TV season, now that the network has ordered the legal drama Conviction to series.

TV’s erstwhile Peggy Carter stars on the new series as Hayes Morrison, a lawyer and former First Daughter who is about to accept a job from her sexy nemesis, New York District Attorney Wayne Wallis (CSI: NY‘s Eddie Cahill), to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with Wayne’s team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit, Hayes uses her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.

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.

Watch a teaser for the new drama below.

    OMG!! Looks like ABC is giving Hayley Atwell a second chance now that Agent Carter got cancelled (SHOCKED).

  2. Goldenvibefan says:

    Right after announcing cancellation of agent carter, nicee. I’ll check it out! Has a solid cast.

  3. Matt C. says:

    This slightly helps make up for Agent Carter’s cancellation! I’m excited for this show!

  4. Couch Mom says:

    Well, if she can’t be Agent Carter, then she can be a lawyer. This has a good cast – Eddit Cahill – glad he’s coming back on TV, Shawn Ashmore, and Emily Kinney. Hope this lasts for more than one or two seasons.

  5. Tea says:

    Praying for a Galavant renewal. And blu-ray release.

    • Goldenvibefan says:

      Doubtful unfortunately, as the actor who plays galavant just got his new show over on the cw picked up for the fall. :(

  6. Sara says:

    I will definitely tune in for this show. I love Hayley and this seems like an interesting premise. Bummed about Agent Carter though.

  7. Kate says:

    Sucks about Agent Carter but this looks promising. Might fill the hole Castle will leave in my DVR this fall.

  8. Lola says:

    Can I at least get a tv movie where we wrap up all the lose ends…like the NAME of her husband???

  9. ABG says:

    I’ll watch this

  10. DreamRose311 says:

    Was it really too much to ask them to keep Agent Carter so that we could have two Hayley Atwell shows? I was really hopeful since when this show was announced they made a point of saying that she’d be able to do both… *sigh*

    • herman1959 says:

      That was never going to happen, but let’s hope the new show works out because I love her. One thing though, I hate her new character’s first name; I hope they change it.

  11. ComeOn says:

    So if this show doesn’t work out after debut season (I mean, do we really need another legal drama?), can Agent Carter goes to Netflix, pretty please?

  12. Kristina says:

    Happy for her. :) Now let’s hope for a good timeslot (i.e., not Tuesday).

  13. Mark says:

    You mean the show that stars the sibling of ABC’s president got picked up? HOW SHOCKING!

  14. Carol_R says:

    Too bad they cast Hayley Atwell in a starring role in it. I can’t stand her lack of acting ability.

  15. Lariet50 says:

    Hayley Atwell – yay! Eddie Cahill – ?? Really? Tag?

  16. Joey Padron says:

    Sad Agent Carter got cancelled but happy Hayley’s new show got pickup to series. I’ll check it out to see her on TV again!

  17. Allan T says:

    Yes, I do like her, no matter her character

  18. Have courage, but be kind.

  19. Walkie says:

    Good. It’s nice to see her get a show where she can show her abundant acting chops. Can’t wait to see it.

  20. Celyn says:

    Will definitely check this out; looks like it has promise.

  21. Stacy says:

    This looks pretty good. I’ll check it out.

  22. Jeannette says:
