Welcome to
For Life Wiki

Father. Prisoner. Lawyer. Warrior.

Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., For Life is an American legal and family drama television series about Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock), a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn't commit.

His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. Aaron's complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, Safiya Masry (Indira Varma), helps shine a light on the flaws and challenges in the U.S. penal and legal systems.

For Life was created by Hank Steinberg and has Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson as an executive producer. The first season aired between April and May 2020, while the second premiered on November 18, 2020 and is currently airing.
