Synopsis

TV drama based on the book by Steve Bello, which is in turn based on a real case. Convicted of killing two cops, Brooklyn-born career criminal Jerry Rosenberg (Tony Danza) seems destined to die in the electric chair. But Rosenberg swears he is innocent and sets about quashing his conviction. Through a correspondence course in law, Rosenberg gains a degree and goes on to establish a considerable reputation for counselling and defending his fellow inmates, earning the title of 'America's Greatest Jailhouse Lawyer'.
