A&E has set an April premiere date for the docuseries Accused: Guilty or Innocent?, which was first announced as part of A&E’s slate of non-fiction series in March 2018.

Accused: Guilty or Innocent? offers an “intimate account” of what happens when someone is formally charged with a crime and sent to trial — all from the perspective of the accused, their legal team and family members.

Each episode follows the accused person’s journey through the planning of their legal defense, the trail and, ultimately, the verdict.

Accused: Guilty or Innocent? is truly compelling,” Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and head of programming, A&E Network, said in a statement. “We have been granted unprecedented access to the accused’s legal defense preparation and to intimate moments with their families before, during and after the trial. The stories are incredibly dramatic, and as evidence is presented throughout the episode, viewers will continually debate if the accused is guilty or innocent.”

Accused: Guilty or Innocent? is produced by UK-based Brinkworth Productions. Malcolm Brinkworth and Xander Brinkwork are EPs. Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Brad Holcman are EPs for A&E.

The series premieres April 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
