After the runaway success of podcast Serial and HBO’s jawdropping finale to The Jinx, it’s no surprise Netflix is adding true crime to it’s ever-expanding roster of original programming. Examining the case of Steven Avery, a Wisconsinite who served 18 years in prison for rape before he was exonerated of the crime through DNA evidence, Avery was in the process of suing the state for some $36m when he was arrested again and this time convicted for the murder of Teresa Halbach. He again protests his innocence. Exploring both cases in minutiae detail, Making A Murderer will get under the skin of Avery and the injustice that may or may not have stricken him when all episodes debut for streaming on Netflix on December 18th.
