Dh recommends this one for fans of Serial, Making a Murderer, etc.  It's a mini-series.

We’re introduced to Naz Khan (Riz Ahmed), an adorably nerdy student who gets invited to a party in New York’s Lower East Side by a basketball player he tutors. When his ride falls through at the last minute, Naz takes his father’s cab without asking and drives from his home in Jackson Heights, Queens, into Manhattan. A beautiful young woman gets into the cab and asks for a ride, derailing his plans and beginning the fateful evening of the title. Naz is later accused of a crime he says he didn’t commit, and he experiences the disorganization and manipulation of the legal system from the inside. His plight is further influenced by his appearance and status as the son of two Pakistani immigrants.
