The five-part series analyzes and presents new compelling information on the 1993 murder of James Jordan, father of NBA superstar Michael Jordan. The crime shocked the nation, creating a media frenzy and countless speculations and conspiracy theories. Through the use of exclusive archival footage and first-person interviews, Moment of Truth examines all aspects of the case – from the initial crime, to the arrest, trial and conviction of Larry Demery and Daniel Green, and continuing to the current day appeal by Green, who maintains his innocence nearly three decades later.

Moment of Truth also delves into the checkered past of Robeson County, North Carolina, including law enforcement corruption exposed in "Operation Tarnished Badge" that resulted in the conviction of 22 deputies from the local sheriff's office in 2002.

The series includes on-camera interviews with Green and his lawyer, Christine Mumma, executive director of the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence. Green's post-conviction efforts have involved years of appeals and multiple, detailed motions that recently culminated with a North Carolina Superior Court judge denying Green an opportunity to present his evidence of innocence. That decision is currently being appealed.
