ABC/Lincoln Square Productions - The Last Defense

Main Title Sequence

The Last Defense main title sequence takes viewers on a visual journey of a convicted killer – from crime scene to conviction to death row prison cell.

Using stylized monochromatic imagery and a single red highlight, we depict each stage of the criminal justice process. Seamless transitions cleverly connect one scene to the next. Finally, a tactile graphic look captures the gritty tone of this ABC network show, but is counterpointed with symbols of hope -- birds in flight. As Viola Davis’ voice-over reminds us, of the three thousand inmates on death row, five are found innocent every year.
