Amazon’s original series Ordeal by Innocence is now available for streaming. It is the latest in a line of original programming from the company as it continues to build its own library of content. The short mini-series should appeal directly to the audience for shows like Poldark, Masterpiece Theater and other Sunday evening entries.
In Ordeal By Innocence, old wounds are reopened for the Argyll family when a man suddenly turns up and claims that the black sheep of the family, Jack Argyll, could not have murdered its tyrannical matriarch—for which he was accused just one year earlier. The family must come to terms with Jack’s innocence and with the fact that one of them may be the real murderer. Check out the trailer here for a quick glimpse and download episodic art here.
