"Wrong Man" is a six-part series that dives deep into the
investigations that led to the conviction of three people who claim
their innocence. It's estimated that 1 in 25 prisoners in the U.S. are
convicted for crimes they did not commit. With more than 2 million
people in prison, that means a staggering 94,300 innocent people may
be behind bars. Academy Award(R) and seven-time Emmy(R)-nominated and
Peabody(R) and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger ("Gone: The
Forgotten Women of Ohio," "Paradise Lost" Trilogy, "Metallica: Some
Kind of Monster") will executive produce and direct. Chris Grant
("Running Wild with Bear Grylls," "The Toy Box," "Darkness") and Drew
Buckley ("Running Wild with Bear Grylls," "The Toy Box," "Darkness")
with Electus will executive produce with Radical's Justin Wilkes
("Oprah's Master Class," "Year Million," "Mars"), Dave O'Connor
("Abstract: The Art of Design," "Mars," "America Divided"), Jon Doran
("Park Bench with Steve Buscemi," "Neighborhood Sessions,"
"Iconoclasts") and Erica Sashin ("Parched," "Border Wars," "Rescue Ink
Unleashed") with Ben Silverman ("The Office," "Jane the Virgin,"
"Marco Polo"). "Wrong Man" is produced by Third Eye Motion Picture
Company, Electus and RadicalMedia. Starz retains all domestic
distribution and home entertainment rights to the series.

"Warriors of Liberty City" docuseries from PGA-winning showrunner Evan
Rosenfeld explores Liberty City - a crime-ridden neighborhood in
Miami, Florida that is arguably the NFL's largest football factory.
The series follows a season with the Liberty City Warriors, a youth
football program founded by an unlikely mentor: Luther Campbell,
better known as "Uncle Luke" from the 2 Live Crew. Before Moonlight
shook the Oscars, Liberty City was best known for some of the biggest
names in football, including Devonta Freeman, Antonio Brown, Duke
Johnson and Teddy Bridgewater. But it's also a place synonymous with
poverty and gun violence, and even more disturbing, in Liberty City,
it's now kids killing kids. Yet in the face of trauma and tragedy,
football legends are born.

"In Fashion" is an hour-long anthology series that will feature the
world's most compelling fashion designers working today. Combining
biography and documentary storytelling, each episode will delve into
the life and work of one iconic designer. We will follow them in the
weeks leading up to a crucial moment in their career. Being immersed
in their lives, we gain unique access into the way they work and the
intimate stories of how they got to this place so many strive for but
never achieve. Eli Frankel ("Revenge Body with Khlo
