TIME: The Kalief Browder Story (Spike) – Premieres 1st March

Documentary about Kailef Browder who at 16 years old was placed into Rikers Island prison even though he wasn’t convicted of a crime.  It uses the real footage of the police interrogation, incidents in Rikers and the audio of the deposition held to get a wrongful imprisonment verdict.

Along with the footage is has interviews Kalief, his family, people who worked on the case and Jay Z to go over what happened, and how after leaving prison three years later had effected him.

The documentary has some parallels with Making A Murderer, especially when the authorities actions, are looked into and the full extent at the injustices are shown.

Well worth a watch.
