SEASON PREMIERE

INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY FROM CREATOR HANK STEINBERG AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER CURTIS '50 CENT' JACKSON, THE FIGHT CONTINUES WHEN ABC'S 'FOR LIFE' RETURNS, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 18

Nicholas Pinnock Leads the Cast as Aaron Wallace Fights to Reclaim His Life and Take Up the Mantle Against Systemic Injustice From Outside the Prison Walls

Aaron Wallace's fight continues in season two of "For Life," as the wrongfully convicted prisoner-turned-litigator and social crusader embarks on a more personal journey. Aaron is motivated by the hope of being reunited with his family and reclaiming a life of freedom to take up the mantle against systemic injustice from outside the prison walls. With continued help from the people who supported him - his family, a wily one-time public defender, Henry Roswell, and his former prison warden, Safiya Masry - Aaron continues his battle against the very political machine that once put him away undeservedly. Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., "For Life" continues to shine an unrelenting light upon the institutional wrongs of our penal and legal systems.
