Sin City Law is an original eight-part documentary series that goes inside four recent criminal trials in Las Vegas, Nevada. The series is produced by Peabody and Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Denis Poncet and Jean-Xavier De Lestrade (The Staircase, Murder on a Sunday Morning) and is directed by Rémy Burkel.
Sin City Law opens a window onto a world that is only steps away from the famous strip, but rarely glimpsed from inside the casinos and mega-hotels populated by tourists: a world of drugs, gangs, depleted gamblers, and wayward club owners where what happens in Vegas stays deep inside the criminal justice system. The series travels with the public defenders' and district attorney's offices to track four separate criminal cases, each of which is covered in two one-hour episodes.
Sin City Law captures the unfolding emotion and suspense of a criminal proceeding as it occurs, moving from strategy sessions to witness interviews; from jailhouse meetings to courtroom proceedings.
