THE TRIAL OF DARLIE ROUTIER HEATS UP ON ABC

The Last Defense




“DARLIE ROUTIER: The Woman” – The trial of Darlie Routier heats up. Facing one of Texas’ top defense lawyers, the prosecution argues that Darlie's actions and demeanor are not that of a grieving mother but of a person capable of murdering her own children. The defense strikes back by questioning the state’s theory of motive and the characterization of Darlie. However, when the prosecution presents a video of Darlie having a party at her children's gravesite in the now infamous “silly string video,” it seems her fate is sealed. Author Barbara Davis, who was at the original trial, gives a firsthand account on “The Last Defense,” TUESDAY, JUNE 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.



“DARLIE ROUTIER: The Woman” was directed by Jeremiah Crowell.



“The Last Defense” is executive produced by Viola Davis, Julius Tennon and Andrew Wang for JuVee Productions; Christine Connor and Lee Beckett for XCON Productions; Vanessa Potkin, Aida Leisenring and Morgan Hertzan for Lincoln Square Productions. The series will air on The ABC Television Network.



“The Last Defense” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format with 5.1- channel surround sound.

VIOLA DAVIS & JULIUS TENNON 'THE LAST DEFENSE'

Viola Davis



ABC will screen the first episode of documentary series “The Last Defense,” from executive producers Viola Davis and Julius Tennon, XCON Productions and Lincoln Square Productions, at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival on FRIDAY, APRIL 27. The seven-episode docu-series explores and exposes flaws in the American justice system through emotional, in-depth examinations of multiple death row cases. This first hour of a three-hour-arc takes a look at the case of Julius Jones, a star college athlete convicted of shooting a father of two at point-blank range as his attorneys race against the clock to get him a new trial before his execution date is set.



Previously announced in June 2017, “The Last Defense” will look at cases from all angles returning to the scene of the crime, re-interview witnesses and delve beyond the details of the crime and court proceedings to take a deep look into the personal stories of the subjects, seeking to trace the path that led them to their place on Death Row. With incisive, compelling storytelling, “The Last Defense” gives voice to those who can no longer be heard.
