Investigation Discovery has greenlit the new series True Conviction featuring Brooklyn-based prosecutor Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi.

The six-part series True Conviction (working title), will be presented through Nicolazzi’s insight as a veteran prosecutor as she travels the country to interview prosecuting attorneys about the most difficult homicide cases they ever faced in pursuit of a conviction. Along the way, she shares her personal reflections and perspective into the case, connects elements of the story to her own experiences as a prosecutor, and unveils how the intricate layers of each murder investigation converged in the courtroom.

Nicolazzi (pictured) was a prosecutor with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office for 21 years where she held a 35-0 success record in the Homicide Bureau before leaving earlier this year.

New York-based Weinberger Media is producing True Conviction for ID, with Scott Weinberger as executive producer. For ID, Lorna Thomas is senior executive producer.

“In my previous life as a detective, prosecutors were always saying, ‘Don’t tell me what you know. Tell me what you can prove. And prove it to a jury,’” said Weinberger, in a statement. “This show is going to reveal the mechanics of how these murder cases work with behind-the-scenes insight that viewers have never been exposed to before, demonstrating how prosecutors piece together information from so many sources to form a compelling case that will lead a jury to make a prudent decision.”

True Conviction is slated to premiere on ID in Q4 2017.
