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

Netflix’s new reality show will attempt to convince an ordinary person to commit…murder?

Calling all sadistic bastards and morbidly curious streaming addicts, on Tuesday Netflix unveiled their new reality show The Push and, well, it’s dark. Like really dark. The twisted brainchild of self-professed psychological illusionist Derren Brown—who has built his entertainment empire on a foundation of coercion and manipulation (gee, what a shocker)—The Push asks one pretty simple question: Can an ordinary human being, via unfortunate circumstance and the influence of a group of trained actors, be convinced to get commit murder? Roll trailer:

So yeah, pretty f—ked up. As you can see from the trailer, poor Chris, who probably thought he was filming one of those crappy Chevy commercials or something, gets slowly, painstakingly drawn into a real-life nightmare from which his only escape seems to be murder. As that realization dawns, the actors in

I Gave Up Netflix For Lent… Why?

Why did I ever think this was going to be a good idea?

I’m addicted to Netflix. I’m not into reality TV, and certainly not into your everyday soaps, so Netflix has always been a saving grace of sorts for me.

Peaky Blinders, House of Cards, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, The Crown, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Narcos, 13 Reasons Why… the list is endless, not much has passed me.

And don’t even get me started on my love for their documentaries – Amanda Knox and Making A Murderer anyone? Epic.

However – it’s the beginning of lent. And with that I’ve decided to give up Netflix for 40 days and 40 nights.

It may not sound like a huge task to some but considering my daily routine involves myself, my housemates and a bundle of Netflix shows – this may be one of
