Drama For Your Mama

I just got through watching the pilot of "Conviction" - the midseason NBC legal drama from the Law and Order Franchise.

The broadband content producer in me is thrilled about this show because it premiered on iTunes for free (it will be sold for $1.99 like the rest of the episodes after the premiere.

However, the filmmaker in me who has spent most of his career working on criminal justice projects was very disappointed. A sappy character drama in a courtroom setting - none of the system/procedural appeal that makes Law and Order such a great show. A show about D.A.'s in NYC could be really entertaining and innovative. This was tired and out of date.
