Tune in to NBC at 8pm EDT (7CDT) Friday July 30th for Dateline's presentation of the 2 hour documentary "Deadline" which chronicles the transformation of formerly pro-death penalty Governor George Ryan of Illinois. Governor Ryan imposed a mortatorium on the death penalty in Illinois in 2000. Three years later, just before he left office, Gov. Ryan commuted the death sentences of 167 inmates to life sentences. He also freed four men entirely.

The film is supposed to be outstanding. It was purchased by NBC after its first showing at Sundance. Please tune in.
