Netflix has been really successful with it’s original programming, so I’m definitely looking forward to following this story.
In a world where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear…
The countdown begins as we’re just a week away from sharing the riveting, high-stakes criminal case of Steven Avery with the world. The docu-series follows Avery, a recent DNA exoneree at the brink of a new, more devastating trial — accused of murder. Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos take us along for a shocking ride where they dig deep into every angle of the Avery case, gathering archival materials, and interviewing those closest to him, uncovering many questions left unanswered, including the fate of Steven Avery. The 10 episode docu-series debuts exclusively on the world’s leading Internet television network on Friday, December 18th.
Making a Murderer examines allegations of police and prosecutorial misconduct, evidence tampering and witness coercion. The filmmakers look at what went wrong in the first case and question whether scientific advances and legislative reforms over the past three decades have gotten us any closer to delivering truth and justice in the system.
Making a Murderer is the latest project in Netflix’s slate of original documentary and docu-series programming, including the Oscar-nominated films The Square and Virunga as well as What Happened, Miss Simone?, Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom and Chef’s Table.
