In these main titles for ABC’s seven-episode docuseries, The Last Defense, Viewpoint Creative traces the path of a death-row inmate using stylized monochromatic imagery run through with a single red highlight.
The series, which premiered on ABC on Tuesday, June 12, tells the stories of two death-row cases: Darlie Routier and Julius Jones.
Routier was sentenced to death in 1997 for the stabbing murder of her two young sons, crimes she still insists she did not commit.
Five years later, Jones was given death for the carjacking and murder of a father of two in Edmond, Oklahoma. Jones, too, maintains his innocence.
The Last Defense is executive produced by Oscar-winner Viola Davis and her husband and producing partner Julius Tennon as well as Andrew Wang for JuVee Productions; Christine Connor and Lee Beckett for XCON Productions, and Vanessa Potkin, Aida Leisenring and Morgan Hertzn for Lincoln Square Productions.
