Kingston, Jamaica

This week on episode 5 of 18° Degrees North, Brooklyn resident Tony Yarborough tells us what it was like serving 21 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. How did he finally regain his freedom? Host Zahra Burton has an exclusive interview.

Also we interview an attorney from the Innocent Project based in New York. They use DNA evidence to prove innocence of those wrongly convicted.

And the no-nonsense Guyanese born actress CCH Pounder from NCIS: New Orleans, The Shield and E.R. She speaks to us about making it in Hollywood as a Caribbean black actress and the surprising thing that her own country has never asked her to do.

About 18° Degrees North

18° Degrees North is a TV news magazine whose main purpose is to uncover stories related to the Caribbean that have gone unreported or been underreported for too long. If it’s political corruption or a celebration of success, this show promises to be bold, fair and in-depth, all while maintaining the highest level of journalistic standards. 18° Degrees North will incite outrage, discomfort, marvel and praise but at its core, it will inform. Our hope is that more information can lead to better decisions, and better decisions can lead to greater prosperity for the Caribbean region and its Diaspora in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

18° Degrees North takes its inspiration from CBS’ 60 Minutes and ABC’s Nightline. It is one half hour long, with three video segments each, exploring topics as varied as politics, science, business, health, sports and culture. 18° Degrees North is a production of Global Reporters for the Caribbean.
