Watch The First Trailer For “Making A Murderer,” Netflix’s Entree Into True Crime
Netflix has jumped on the true crime bandwagon with its 10-part documentary series, “Making A Murderer.” Following in the footsteps of “The Jinx” and the first season of Serial, the show investigates the curious case of Steven Avery, digging up all the police coercion, shoddy investigating and tampering that led to Avery’s wrongful conviction on sexual assault charges, causing him to spend 18 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Avery was exonerated based on DNA evidence and was accused of murder (!) upon his release. American justice! What a great and definitely not-at-all flawed system!
All 10 episodes will be available to stream on Netflix on December 18th. That gives you one week to start preparing your “Homeland”-style evidence cork board, so get to it, gumshoe!
