Along with Serial and The Jinx, 2015’s Making A Murderer was a key event in the ongoing mainstreaming of true crime, and one of the first Netflix series to really dominate the global water-cooler conversation. Netflix has long promised a second season of the show from filmmakers Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, first announcing their involvement in new episodes back in the summer of 2016. This, well…this is not that.

/Film is among the outlets reporting that a spinoff series to Making A Murderer is in the works called Convicting A Murderer, which will re-tell the story from the perspective of the law enforcement who investigated Steven Avery and the attorneys who prosecuted (and defended) him, with “unprecedented access to District Attorney Ken Kratz, Lead Investigator Tom

Making a Murderer to get follow-up series on Netflix

Netflix phenomenon Making a Murderer is set to get a follow-up series that will explore a different side to the Stephen Avery case.

The first series focused on the murder of Teresa Halbach and tried to uncover whether Steven Avery, who had been convicted for the crime, was really guilty.

The follow-up series Convicting a Murderer will look at district attorney Ken Kratz and other police officers on the ‘law enforcement side of the story’.

In a statement, creator Shawn Rech said that it will ‘take a broader perspective’ on the case.

“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.

“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

Pritzker lawyers petition for Supreme Court to hear ‘Making a Murderer’ case

Lawyers from the Pritzker School of Law and the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth petitioned Tuesday for the United States Supreme Court to hear the case of their client, Brendan Dassey, according to a news release.

Dassey, who has “intellectual and social limitations,” was convicted in 2007 of assisting his uncle, Steven Avery, in raping and murdering Teresa Halbach, according to the release. Dassey was 16 years old at the time. The release says Dassey’s lawyers, Pritzker Profs. Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin, allege that his conviction was primarily based on a confession during a coercive interrogation.

The case was featured on Netflix’s documentary series, “Making a Murderer.”

The case was later heard and overturned by a Wisconsin federal court, which declared that his confession had been “unconstitutionally coerced,” according to the release.

The ruling was originally upheld in front of a panel of judges from

Production Begins On ‘Making A Murderer’ Sequel Series

Production has begun on “Convicting a Murderer,” which is a followup series to Netflix’s smash hit “Making a Murderer.”

Deadline reported the following:

Production has begun on Convicting a Murderer, described as a follow-up to Netflix’s Emmy-nominated docuseries Making a Murderer, from documentary filmmaker Shawn Rech (A Murder In The Park).

Producers say Convicting A Murderer will investigate the controversial case built by the State of Wisconsin against Steven Avery for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, in which police were accused of tampering with crime scenes and planting evidence to manipulate the investigation and implicate Avery of the murder. Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey are currently serving life sentences.

Rech will work with District Attorney Ken Kratz, Lead Investigator Tom Fassbender, and other major players in State v. Avery on the docuseries.

This should be incredible. The major criticism against the original series is that it was extremely biased against law enforcement, and was pretty
