The series will also continue to shine a light on the challenges and flaws of the American legal and criminal justice system.
Steinberg said: “We’ve been talking in the writer’s room for a few weeks, and we feel an enormous sense of responsibility to be one of the few shows on television that’s dealing with the social justice issues that are happening in the country and is set in a contemporary time.
“People were already having these conversations in some ways; there was some bipartisan support for justice reform a couple of years ago.
“Then all of a sudden, this explosion happened with the death of George Floyd, which makes the show more overtly relevant because people are now paying attention much more to the issue.
“We just feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to depict whatever we’re going to show in the series in a sensitive, delicate way that is able to discuss the issues triggered by this incident and explore it from an intimate, personal, and emotional point of view through our characters and not exploit it in some way where it feels ripped from the headlines.”
You can watch For Life as it airs every Wednesday on ABC.
