'Making A Murderer' Fans Will Love Kim K's New True-Crime Doc

'Making A Murderer' Fans Will Love Kim K's New True-Crime Doc

Many know Kim Kardashian as a reality TV star, social media icon and mother-of-four, but the 39-year-old is also currently working to add 'attorney' to her list of achievements.

Now, a new documentary will see the law school student put her new skills to good use.

Described as her "crusade to shed light on the criminal justice system", one-off film Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project will see the attempt to right injustices within the American judicial system - much like the basis of hit docuseries Making a Murderer.

It's a plight she began in 2018 when she convinced the White House to grant Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother and first time non-violent offender serving a life in prison, clemency.

The documentary sees Kim explore cases of people she believed have been wronged by the criminal justice system, following their stories and circumstances that have led them to being locked up.

The trailer for the two-hour doc gives begins with Kim saying: "There is a mass incarceration problem in the United States."

It follows Kim as she travels to prisons to speak to inmates, lobbies officials and speaks to her own legal team to think up strategies to free them.

"I partnered with Oxygen to do the 'Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project' documentary because there are millions of people impacted by this broken justice system, and I wanted to put faces to these numbers and statistics," said Kim, who also acts as executive producer.

"There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen. I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform."

In it, Kim tackles the cases of Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard, all of whom she and her team believe have been unfairly sentenced, and the processes that eventually lead to some of their releases.

In the summer of 2018, Kim began studying to become a criminal justice lawyer, starting a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, and is planning to sit her exams in 2022.

Kim is following in the footsteps of her lawyer father Robert Kardashian, who famously acted as an assistant on O.J Simpson's defence team.

Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project documentary is available the UK on hayu from Monday 6th April.
