Life Series Premiere on The Box

the BOX – Thursdays from 18 February, 8.30pm

Life was his sentence. Life is what he got back.

Charlie Crews was wrongfully convicted of the triple murder of his business partner, Tom Seyboldt, and all but one of the partner’s immediate family.

Stripped of his badge and innocence, Crews was given a life sentence, where he suffered horribly.

After twelve years, Crews’ lawyer proves his innocence; he is exonerated and given a substantial settlement. Once freed, he is reinstated to the LAPD and promoted to detective in the homicide division. While fulfilling his police responsibilities, Crews attempts to reconnect with his friends and loved ones, working to put his life back together and come to grips with his place in the world. Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers) stars as complex, offbeat Detective Charlie Crews, who, thanks to close friend and attorney Constance Griffiths (Brooke Langton), returns to the force after serving time in prison for the crime he didn’t commit.

The cast also includes Sarah Shahi (Rush Hour 3) as Charlie’s sceptical, demanding partner, Robin Weigert (Deadwood) as their hard-hitting lieutenant, and Adam Arkin (Chicago Hope) as Crews’ former cellmate Ted Earley.
