Netflix is launching Making A Murderer-style shows about food and business

If you like food and true crime shows (so basically everyone), then Netflix has just the thing for you.

The streaming platform is looking to build on the success of shows such as Making a Murderer and The Keepers with two series focused on the food industry and the business world respectively.

Dirty Money comes from documentary-maker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) and will look at untold stories of scandal and corruption in the business world, according to Netflix.

One of its episodes, entitled The Confidence Man, is focused on Donald Trump and his business career. Directed by Fisher Stevens, the episode is described as “a rollicking profile” of the rise and reign of TRUMP Inc.

“Weaving together a tapestry of tales in real estate booms and busts, Stevens lays out how Donald Trump’s

Netflix Is Confused About The People Watching This Christmas Film 18 Days In A Row

Netflix recently revealed some pretty interesting stats about its users’ viewing habits in its 2017 Year in Review. Some have proven to be hilarious (whoever’s watched Bee Movie 347 times in 2017), some unsurprising (we’ve collectively watched 140 million hours of Netflix a day this year), while others have just been downright baffling – like the fact that 53 people have watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days.

A Christmas Prince is a 2017 Christmas rom-com film – and probably one of the few Netflix Originals you’ve never heard of, unlike Narcos, Stranger Things, BoJack Horseman, Love, The Crown, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Making a Murderer, Master of None and others.

Even Netflix is questioning why everyone’s been watching it so much – and it’s Netflix’s own.

Starring Rose McIver (we dunno either) and Ben Lamb (yep,

Netflix’s ‘The Keepers’ Features Women Speaking Up About Sexual Assault & They’re ‘Silence Breakers,’ Too

Though it’s a trend that’s been on the rise for the last couple of years, 2017 proved that true crime is here to stay. And while millions tuned into Serial and marathoned Making a Murderer, one true crime show flew a little more under the radar because it approached the topic differently. Netflix’s The Keepers used the murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik as an entrance point to uncovering the alleged sexual abuse at Keough High School that many suspect played a role in why she was killed. In the vast majority of true crime shows, the victims are a mere footnote — but The Keepers‘ strong focus on the victims sets it apart and makes the series the most important crime documentary of 2017. And, though it came a few months before the wave of sexual assault allegations against powerful men, the

What better forensic science can reveal about the JFK assassination

Clifford Spiegelman, Texas AM University

(THE CONVERSATION) Popular television shows such as the “Law Order,” “CSI” and “NCIS” franchises glorify forensic science as a magical, near-flawless tool for identifying criminals. Not surprisingly, Hollywood’s depiction of forensic science needs a reality makeover.

The “CSI effect” is well-documented. As long ago as 2009, scientists with the National Research Council noted that no forensic method (except for nuclear DNA analysis) can reliably and consistently connect evidence to a specific individual or source. More recently, President Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology reported that pattern-matching forensic procedures are unreliable. The Innocence Project has exonerated many hundreds of wrongfully convicted people, and bad forensic science was found to be a contributing factor in about half of the original cases.

These problems are not new. Six years before the National Research Council’s 2009 report, I was on a panel of the
