If you’re a fan of true-crime dramas, then you absolutely need to drop everything and start binge-watching The Innocence Files on Netflix.

Netflix has a lot of true-crime documentaries and true-crime dramas but the newest one is The Innocence Files and you should begin watching this immediately. You’ll be hooked just like I was.

The Innocence Files comes from executive producer and director Liz Garbus, an Academy Award nominee with Academy Award winners Alex Gibney, Roger Ross Williams and is directed by another Academy Award nominee Jed Rothstein and Emmy Award winner Andy Grieve and Sarah Dowland.

Pretty loaded resumes for the brains behind the limited series that has nine episodes. It’s the No. 8 streamed show on Netflix for the past week and has been among the top 10 titles to watch since it was released last week.

Chances are you’ve seen the title and seen it trending and may have given some thought but you needed to finish Ozark or Tiger King or dove into Outer Banks or any other number of Netflix programs first.

Well, don’t delay much longer because once you start The Innocence Files, you’re likely going to be hooked and you’ll have to finish the series before you can resume your everyday life.

Here’s the synopsis for The Innocence Files from Netflix:

"The Innocence Files shines a light on the untold personal stories behind eight cases of wrongful conviction that the nonprofit organization the Innocence Project and organizations within the Innocence Network have uncovered and worked tirelessly to overturn. The nine-episode series is composed of three compelling parts – The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution. These stories expose difficult truths about the state of America’s deeply flawed criminal justice system, while showing when the innocent are convicted, it is not just one life that is irreparably damaged forever: families, victims of crime and trust in the system are also broken in the process."

Sounds really good, right?

I told you it is. If you’re a fan of this type of investigative cultural and societal documentaries, this is going to be for you.

If you liked How to Fix a Drug Scandal, The Trials of Gabriel Hernandez, The Staircase or Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, you’ll want to add The Innocence Files to your Netflix list and begin watching as soon as you can.
