Introducing Gray Area, A Show About Justice and Redemption

I’m Julie Reynolds Martinez and for more than 15 years, I’ve reported on criminal justice in the Central Coast. I’ve analyzed our prisons and courts, covered hundreds of crimes, and sat through hundreds of criminal trials. Gray Area tells the stories of people who are dealing with this whole thing we call justice, people who are trying to get beyond labels of right and wrong or good and evil to get to something bigger – redemption. Gray Area deals with some pretty heavy stuff, but it also lightens up when you least expect it.

Ultimately, here’s the question we’re hoping to answer: If we don’t believe in those extremes of good and evil, what DO we believe in?
