BGN interviews actor Joy Bryant about her role as Marie Wallace in For Life.
Wrongfully convicted prisoner-turned-litigator and social crusader Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock) continues his fight and embarks on a more personal journey in season two of For Life. Aaron is motivated by the hope of being reunited with his family and reclaiming a life of freedom to take up the mantle against systemic injustice from outside the prison walls. With continued help from the people who supported him—his family, a wily one-time public defender, Henry Roswell (Timothy Busfield), and his former prison warden, Safiya Masry (Indira Varma)—Aaron continues his battle against the very political machine that once put him away, undeservedly.
Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., For Life continues to shine an unrelenting light upon the institutional wrongs of our penal and legal systems. For Life returns Wednesday, Nov. 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.
