August Richards.

Scheduled to debut in early 2006, "Conviction" is a fast-paced, character-oriented series focusing on young Assistant District Attorneys in New York who are confronted with tough, high-profile cases that often challenge their limited experience. "Conviction" will be shot entirely in New York, and the first-season order is 13 episodes.

According to series creator Dick Wolf, "Since 'Conviction' will be a 'charactercedural,' we will be dealing extensively with characters' back stories and personal lives. I am delighted with the extraordinary cast we have assembled, which will give the show depth and emotional intensity."
