Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) upon his release from jail after serving 19 years on Georgia’s Death Row before DNA evidence disputed the state’s original case. Holden, who was only 18 when convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl, returns to his family and to his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty.

Starring in Rectify alongside Aden Young (Killer Elite) as Daniel Holden are Abigail Spencer (True Detective) as Amantha Holden, Clayne Crawford (A Walk To Remember) as Ted Talbot Jr, Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby) as Tawney Talbot, J Smith Cameron (True Blood) as Janet Talbot and Luke Kirby (Take This Waltz) as Jon Stern.

Created and written by Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy) and executive produced by Gran Via’s Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad), the six-episode first season of Rectify originally debuted on Sundance Channel, AMC’s sister network in the US.
