Devil's Advocate is a Dutch reality television series produced by AVRO, an Amsterdam-based production company, and shown on Nederland 2, a public broadcaster. It stars defense attorney Gerard Spong, who attempts to convince a jury and studio audience of the innocence of some of the world's worst criminals.

The 8 April 2009 show created controversy when the jury ruled that there was not enough evidence to convict Osama bin Laden of leading al-Qaeda or of masterminding the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks. Spong had argued during the show that bin Laden was a victim of "Western propaganda." The story was broken in the United States by The Hollywood Reporter.[1][2][3]
