When They See Us: When They See Us  Season 1 (Full Season)

"When They See Us is a 2019 American drama web television miniseries created, co-written, and directed by Ava DuVernay for Netflix, that premiered on May 31, 2019. The series was inspired by the Central Park jogger case from 1989 in which a 28-year-old female jogger named Trisha Meili was attacked and raped in Central Park in New York City, leaving her in a coma for 12 days. Five juvenile males and the protagonists of the series– four African-American and one Latino (Antron, Kevin, Yusef, Raymond, and Korey)– were convicted of the crimes by juries in two separate trials in 1990. The convictions were subsequently vacated in 2002 (a legal position in which the parties are treated as though no trial has taken place)." [more inside]
