About this show

Stephen Belber's dramatically and politically astute script follows world-weary Delaware journalist Rick Dayne as he rediscovers his zeal delivering Darius McReele from sixteen years on death row, convicted of murder. Darius' magnetic personality makes him a darling of the media lecture circuit, leading to national attention and political viability. The local Democratic Party taps McReele to challenge the Republican incumbent for his U.S. Senate seat, and McReele in turn taps Dayne to be his campaign manager. When questions arise about McReele's true culpability in the crime for which he has been cleared, Rick's attempt to salvage his faith in humanity runs up against his all-too-human desire to win at all costs.
