"I Didn't Do It" (TV show) on Investigation Discovery is a reality series narrated by Chris Noth, , known for his work as a detective on "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and the State Attorney on "The Good Wife."

"We find the defendant guilty." Those five words have sent millions of Americans to prison. Although we'll never know for sure, some studies suggest that between 40,000 and 100,000 men and women are serving time for crimes they simply did not commit. And, even more ominously, for every person who is wrongly convicted, the real criminal remains at large.

The series walks viewers through cases of mistaken identity, misinterpreted evidence, forced confessions and legal technicalities that sent innocent people to jail, and allow the guilty to roam free. The show follows those who fight for their freedom, and prove their own innocence by bringing the real perpetrators to justice.

Not only do these systemic problems shatter the lives of those accused, but they wreak havoc on the witnesses, law-enforcement officers and attorneys in the system trying desperately to see that justice is served. Guilt-stricken to have played any part in sending the wrong person to prison, witnesses, detectives and prosecutors discuss the reasons they made these tragic mistakes, and how they've struggled to come to terms with what they've done.

ID's "I Didn't Do It" is produced for Investigation Discovery by Lively Family, Inc., with Leanna Crouch as executive producer and Trish Wood as supervising producer. For Investigation Discovery, Thomas Cutler is executive producer, Sara Kozak is vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
