For Life follows the story of Aaron Wallace (played by Nicholas Pinnock), who becomes a lawyer behind bars, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he did not commit.

The series is inspired by the true story of Isaac Wright Jr, who was was wrongly convicted on drug charges and sentenced to life in prison.

During his time in prison, Wright trained as a paralegal and even helped overturn the wrongful convictions of 20 of his fellow inmates, before overturning his own.
Following his release, Wright graduated from college at Thomas Edison State University in Trenton and went on to study law at St Thomas University School of Law.

He passed the bar in 2008 and nine years later, in 2017, the New Jersey State Bar Association Committee approved his application.

Wright serves as an executive producer on the ABC series.

Speaking to Esquire, Wright said: “I got over 20 people out of prison, some with life sentences and others based on getting their sentences reduced.

“The act of representing these other prisoners who were also wronged was a part of me fighting them back and getting them back for what they had done to me.

“And so all of those victories, they represented something really, really, really important to me.”
