Death Row: Countdown to Execution, British TV host Susanna Reid interviews inmates who have been sentenced to death for murder in the United States and only have weeks of life left before the sentence is carried out.


In the first part of the documentary, Susanna travels to Huntsville, Texas to interview Patrick Murphy who was put on Death Row for the murder of a police officer in 2000 in a botched escape attempt. He was originally serving a 50-year sentence for aggravated sexual assault. While Murphy did not kill the officer himself, as part of a gang of escapees, all seven were sentenced to death under the Law of Parties, which "allows for a person to be held criminally responsible for another's actions if that person acts with 'the intent to promote or assist the commission of the offence and solicits, encourages, directs aid, or attempts to aid the other person committing the offence',"
