Storyline

In this groundbreaking new series airing on Al Jazeera America, The System with Joe Berlinger, award-winning documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger explores the state of our justice system. Berlinger personally guides us through a suspenseful journey as he doggedly searches for the truth where others have not found it or didn't care to look. Every episode explores one of the most pressing issues of the criminal justice system - flawed forensics, faulty eyewitness testimony, juvenile justice, prosecutorial misconduct, mandatory sentencing, among others - through the lens of controversial and dramatic cases that both distill the issues and speak to their larger implications for the system and society itself.
