Free Meek, Amazon’s new documentary, will be released this August, and the first full trailer for the series sets out why it’s an important watch.
It follows Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, who was arrested in 2017 for probation violations, sparking outrage. A re-investigation of his original case explores allegations of police corruption as Meek becomes the face of a justice reform movement.
The five-episode series chronicles Mill’s fight for exoneration in his legal case while exposing the broader flaws of the U.S. criminal justice system. As Meek, his family and his legal team fight for his freedom, cameras capture the birth of the #FREEMEEK movement, the launch of the REFORM Alliance and the re-investigation into his case.
The series premieres on Friday 9th August. Here’s the trailer:
