Reimagined by former attorney David E. Kelley, the man who gave us classic court shows like “Ally McBeal” and “Boston Legal”, the eight-part “Presumed Innocent” series centers around Rusty Sabich (Jake Gyllenhaal), a high-flying criminal prosecutor whose life is turned upside down when he’s accused of brutally murdering fellow prosecutor, Carolyn Polhemus (Renate Reinsve). 

Details about his close relationship with the deceased begin to emerge and the audience is left wondering if there are other skeletons in Sabich’s closet. 

Exploring themes such as obsessions, sex and politics, Gyllenhaal brings some serious star power to the show which sees his on-screen wife Barbara Sabich played by the Oscar-nominated Ruth Negga, while the versatile Peter Sarsgaard takes on the role of lead prosecutor Tommy Molto.
