Exhibit A: a Netflix Originals documentary series, premiering June 2019

ExA_1x1_POST.jpg

The new Netflix Originals documentary series “Exhibit A” is an exploration into the American criminal justice system through the uncertainties of forensic science. Each episode in this four-part series delves into a particular forensic discipline, from scent-detecting dogs to bloodstain pattern to video surveillance to touch DNA, and reveals how often flawed or misapplied science can lead to wrongful convictions. It examines the dangerous grey areas of scientific interpretation and how evidence can be not only distorted through the bias of investigators, but fundamentally misunderstood by all actors in the criminal justice system.

“Exhibit A” was created and directed by Kelly Loudenberg, produced by Samantha Culp.

Now streaming on Netflix
