Summary
The prosecuting attorney is the most powerful official in the criminal courts. As such, an effective prosecutor must have an encyclopedic knowledge of the intricate structure and history of the law. However, beyond his role as a legal scholar, the prosecutor must also be a compelling storyteller, have a commanding courtroom presence and be an unshakable spokesman for justice.  A prosecutor's job starts when a crime is discovered. As the investigation progresses, the prosecutor's strategy determines not only who is charged, but what evidence is needed and what types of bargains must be struck to ensure convictions. In essence, a prosecutor must find the best route to justice, which clues to unravel and how to piece them together to lead a jury to the truth. It can be an overwhelming task. Although the nation's crime rate is dropping, the number of crimes committed is far too high. The pressure on prosecutors is enormous, whether it comes from the tough courthouse politics or from the unforgiving public.  THE PROSECUTORS, a serious/in depth series from New Dominion Pictures, explores the complexities of the American judicial system through the eyes of the dedicated men and women who work in it. This series is set amidst the grim reality of backlogged courts, the overworked police stations and on the hardening streets of America. It profiles leading prosecutors, as well as young attorneys just discovering the laws of the legal jungle. Viewers will hear the horrendous stories of the victims and their families as they turn to prosecutors in the face of tragedy, as well as the many judges, investigators and defense attorneys who work in this unique setting. This series will explore the relationships that bind these players, the tension that separates them and the inspiration that drives them all. It will define what makes the rule of law the powerful but sometimes precarious mechanism (or machine?) this nation has come to rely upon. THE PROSECUTORS is more than a series about crime and the people we entrust to protect us from it, it is also about justice, and those who bring it to light.
