Superb Series
20 February 2004 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is one of television's most successful documentary series. In program after program "American Justice" presents informative, fascinating, and beautifully scripted and edited histories.

A case in point is 2003's "The Witness and the Hitman," which relates the moving story of an ordinary witness (Bob Lowe) to a neighborhood murder (of Billy Logan) by a high ranking Chicago mob hitman (Harry Alleman).

While the case has many twists and turns, its focus is on Lowe's plight as he enters a makeshift witness protection program and the consequences of Lowe's trying to do the right thing under the law.

The series is dead-on in its honesty, clearly presenting the facts, which allow the viewer to arrive at his/her own conclusions. What's so remarkable is that the series never seems to drop in its level of excellence. Truly, this is American justice in action.

Bill Kurtis is the charismatic narrator, Stefanie Wetzel the 2002 writer-producer, Adam Zoll the copy editor, and Bob Colton, composer of original score.

Tower Productions, Inc. takes credit as the production company for the series, which is shown on Arts & Entertainment Network.
