Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay wrote and directed this four-part Netflix original series based on a true story that gripped the country.

The series will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The five teenagers from Harlem were Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. Taking us back into the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached in 2014.
