Episode 1

Revered high school football star Greg Kelley had already accepted an offer to play college ball, and was looking forward to a legendary senior year. That all changed when he was accused of molesting a four-year old boy at an in-home daycare. After an investigation by the Cedar Park Police Department, the DA believed they had an open and shut case. Greg was sentenced to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole. However, a surprising show of community support for Kelley called the investigation and conviction into question.

Protests on both sides erupt in the streets and online, as an unlikely advocate for Greg emerges to lead a movement. The Cedar Park Police Chief becomes further involved by adamantly defending their investigation.

Timely and haunting, if far from perfect.

Fails to get interviews with some of its more culpable key players, but the series more than makes up for it with its deeper profile of Kelley himself, who is not always his own best advocate

Outcry is completely effective at stoking our indignation. And if episodes three through five feel like they're repetitive, I think it's intentional - to simulate the protracted timeline of frustration experienced by Kelley.

The series would have profited handsomely from cutting. Outcry is, nevertheless, an immensely moving piece of history.
