This six part event series on ABC explores the cases of two death row inmates. It will be an emotional, in-depth examination of the merits of their cases and the details of their stories. In the tradition of The Thin Blue Line and Serial, we will look at these cases from all angles, teasing out the truth. FOUR PERCENT will use dramatic verite, simple, elegant interviews, and curated, emotionally charged imagery to create two gripping documentaries that travel far beyond mere investigative timelines and lists of facts or evidence.
