Chris Watts: A Faking It Special: Chilling New Documentary About The Watts Family Murders Is Dropping Next Month

A new documentary centred around the Watts family murders is coming to the UK, and it sounds like a must-watch for true crime fans.

Chris Watts garnered international attention in 2018 when the father-of-two was arrested and convicted for the murder of his pregnant wife, Shanann Watts and his two daughters, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste.

The horrific, senseless murders were documented in Netflix's American Murder: The Family Next Door.

The documentary was made with footage from archival footage including social media posts, law enforcement recordings, text messages and home video footage to depict the events that occurred.

In Chris Watts: A Faking It Special, experts pour through the police bodycam footage of the initial search, along with the TV news interviews and interrogation recordings, to pick out the chilling tell-tale clues that Chris was the murderer.

Other special episodes in the discovery+ series will focus on Ted Bundy.

During the 1970s, Ted Bundy carried at least 30 brutal murders across seven different states, making him one of America's most prolific serial killers.

In Ted Bundy: A Faking It Special, experts will study police interrogation tapes and courtroom footage to reveal how Bundy was able to escape justice for so long, by distorting facts, creating confusion and manipulating the truth.

A spokesperson for discovery+ said: "Across the three specials, body language expert Dr Cliff Lansley, Professor of Linguistics Dawn Archer and Forensic Psychologist Kerry Daynes will meticulously analyse and pull out the potential tell-tale signs of deception captured on footage for each case.

"Whether it's the shrug of the shoulder, the slip of the tongue or clues in their psychological profile, the three experts will add to the conversation and ask, are they faking it?"

Chris Watts: A Faking It Special airs from April on discovery+.
