Deadline: Pilot

Popular newspaper columnist Wallace Benton has just discovered his Pulitzer prize-winning series from two years ago may have landed two innocent men on death row. With just three days to right the wrong that may have been committed, Wallace goes on a crusade to save the men who he once condemned for their vicious murders of fast food restaurant employees. To solve his case, Wallace enlists the help of a group of interns who go through the evidence step by step to discover that Wallace was wrong and right at the same time. Now Wallace must free the innocent and imprison the guilty.
