Television Tonight: Civil Rights Lawyer Elected Philadelphia’s Chief Lawyer | Television and radio

Philly DA

10 pm, BBC Four

An excellent eight-part series from Storyville, following the election of outsider and progressive prosecutor Larry Krasner as district attorney Philadelphia – a city with one of the highest prison rates in the United States. We open in the fall of 2017, when civil rights lawyer Krasner begins his application, much to the surprise of the district attorney’s office – the institution to which he spent most of his career suing. And soon he is causing controversy by announcing a proposed new monetary policy. Omar Potassium
