Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 34-year-old ac­tress stars as Hayes Mor­ri­son in the le­gal drama cur­rently air­ing on US tele­vi­sion chan­nel ABC, but it has now been re­vealed that the broad­caster will not be picked up for any ad­di­tion episodes. Ac­cord­ing to TheWrap.com, the net­work will still pro­duce the 13 episodes it had orig­i­nally or­dered, but no new episodes will be com­mis­sioned and the se­ries will not be con­tin­u­ing. Cre­ated by Liz Fried­man and Liz Fried­lan­der, ‘Con­vic­tion’ fol­lowed the story of Hayes - the daugh­ter of a for­mer Pres­i­dent - who is forced to take a job as the head of the Con­vic­tion In­tegrity Unit in Los An­ge­les af­ter her neme­sis Con­ner Wal­lace (Ed­die Cahill) black­mails her with the threat of jail time for co­caine pos­ses­sion which could harm her mother’s Se­nate cam­paign. Along­side her team of lawyers, in­ves­ti­ga­tors, and foren­sic ex­perts, Hayes is then tasked with ex­am­in­ing cases where there’s sus­pi­cion the wrong per­son may have been con­victed. In ad­di­tion to Hay­ley and Ed­die, the drama also starred names such as Shawn Ash­more, Mer­rin Dungey, and Emily Kin­ney. The can­cel­la­tion comes af­ter ABC re­cently de­cided to also cut down on the episode or­der for ‘No­to­ri­ous’ - an­other le­gal drama star­ring Piper Per­abo and Daniel Sun­jata. ‘Con­vic­tion’ aired its fifth episode on Mon­day, and al­though the pro­gram was watched by 3.6 mil­lion view­ers, it is un­clear as of yet whether the show will re­tain its Mon­day night slot, or whether it will be moved in the wake of its can­cel­la­tion. For Hay­ley, the news comes af­ter she suf­fered a sim­i­lar set back on an­other ABC show ‘Agent Carter’, the short-lived Marvel se­ries which lasted just two nine-episode sea­sons.
