This ‘Making a Murderer’ spin-off will change the way you see the Steven Avery case
Convicting a Murderer
If you are reading this, you have more than likely indulged in Netflix's Making a Murderer; you may have searched for updates on Steven Avery and his convicted nephew Brendan Dassey online, and have waited patiently for the alleged season 2 sequel to drop. If you haven't watched it, what on earth are you doing here? Do yourself a favour, get to a couch and watch the 10-part series right NOW. The 2015 crime documentary essentially claimed that Avery was framed for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach with episodes highlighting various forms of misconduct within Manitowoc County Police who handled the case. And now a brand new series about the controversial case and subsequent trial is in the works.
As reported by Refinery 29, documentary maker Shawn Rech (Murder in the Park) is currently working on a new series titled Convicting a Murderer. The series will focus on the case built against Avery by the State of Wisconsin for the murder of Halbach. Many viewers had commented that Making a Murderer was biased in favour of Avery and his nephew. Convicting a Murderer will aim to level out the playing field, showing the story from multiple angles that were not available during the time Making a Murderer was produced.
"When Making a Murderer was produced, many on the law enforcement side of the story could not, or would not, participate in the series, which resulted in a one-sided analysis of the case," Rech stated in the press release. "This docu-series will examine the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective. It will also share with viewers the traumatic effects of being found guilty and vilified in the court of public opinion."
Production on Convicting a Murderer has reportedly commenced, however the series has not yet been picked up on a network.
