A Chilling New True Crime Docuseries Is Coming To Netflix
Now we've finally finished binging on Making A Murderer: Part 2, it's time for Netflix to release a new docuseries - which is exactly what the online streaming service is doing next month.
The Innocent Man is a brand new series about two Oklahoma murderers, based on John Grisham's best-selling non-fiction book, set to be released on 14th January.
Grisham's book, The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town brought international attention to two murders which took place in the town of Adam Oklahoma in the 1980s, as well as the unusual events that followed.
The six-part series is directed by Finders Keepers' Clay Tweel, and much like Making A Murderer, features interviews from the victims' friends and families, as well as residents from the rural town, journalists and other people who were involved in the case.
Grisham appears as an expert on the case, along with attorney Barry Scheck, co-director of the Innocence Project.
Author, Grisham, described the documentary as "gripping, compelling, and ultimately just as heartbreaking as the book."
He added: "Though I know the story well, I can't wait to watch it again."
Tweeting the trailer for the chilling docuseries, the author - who usually writes fictional books, told his followers: "If I wrote The Innocent Man as a novel, folks probably wouldn't believe it."
The docuseries, developed by Tweel and Ross Dinerstein, mixes new footage with archived videos and images taken in the 1980s, which again is similar to that of Making A Murderer.
It is produced by Maura Anderson and Shannon Riggs, who will also work as executive producers alongside Tweel and Dinerstein.
Tweel said: "As a filmmaker, I often find that the best stories are the ones we tell ourselves. But what surprised me was the extent to which that idea also permeates the criminal justice system. By re-examining these old cases, I hope that viewers will identify the biases involved, even their own."

Meanwhile, fans of the online streaming giant's Sabrina and the Teenage Witch reboot, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will be pleased to hear a Christmas special is on its way. The one-off special is also set to premiere on the 14th of December.
As Netflix puts it: "The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice - the longest night of the year - when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors - both welcome and unwelcome - you never know what might come down the chimney..."
