HLN returns to the thorny moral topic of capital punishment with its original series, Death Row Stories.

Each episode is recounted by current and former death-row inmates and seeks to unravel the truth behind a different capital murder case.

To illustrate the stories of season four, the above trailer features sculpted stories that reveal images of crime, incarceration, investigations and the accused. Stacked on top of each other, the different scenes are topped with Lady Liberty to create a sort of ironic version of the iconic statue. HLN worked with production and post-production houses Nathaniel Howe Studios and Amy Palmer Group to create the spot, with Syn Music composing the music.

​Death Row Stories returns to HLN on June 2 at 8 p.m.
