When They See Us (formerly known as Central Park Five) is based on the true story of the 1989 case of five teenagers who were wrongfully convicted of raping a woman in New York's Central Park. The series exposes the breakdown of our criminal justice system, with each part focusing on one of the five teenagers from Harlem — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise — wrongly convicted of raping Trisha Meili in Central Park.

The series will span from the spring of 1989, when each were first questioned about the incident, to 2014 when they were exonerated and a settlement was reached with the city of New York.
