The Redemption Project - The Redemption Project is an eight-part CNN Original Series produced by Citizen Jones and directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, Jason Cohen. Each episode follows the victim - or surviving family members - of a life-altering crime as they journey to meet face-to-face with their offender in the hopes of finding answers or seeking some sense of closure.
