Zodiak to distribute the Devil

Zodiak Entertainment's distribution arm will distribute the new Dutch format Devil's Advocate. The series, planned and produced by Palm Plus in The Netherlands, stars defense lawyer Gerard Spong who spends each episode convincing a jury and a studio audience that some of the world's worst criminals are innocent. The series gathered some controversy around it after an episode aired on Nederland 2 where the jury found Osama bin Laden innocent of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and failed to convict him of leading al-Qaeda.
