"…handled with restraint and finesse…"

- The New York Times

"...ABC's new 50 Cent-produced legal drama For Life, created by Hank Steinberg, has a wrinkle that not only separates it from the others out there, it might just make you believe that there is hope for a system that seems irrevocably broken."

- TV Guide

"...easily watchable and enjoyable… more than just comfort food from broadcast TV."

- USA Today

"For Life" is a fictional serialized legal and family drama inspired by the life of Isaac Wright, Jr. about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn't commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. The show will also, through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, examine the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems.
