The three-part series, which lands on 15th January, will delve into the dark and tragic story of embattled sport star Aaron Hernandez, who was arrested in 2013 for the murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.

In the first trailer teasing the series, viewers hear audio of a prison phone call between Hernandez and a woman.

He says in the recorded call: "My whole body's shaking right now", to which she asks: "What happened?"

The former football player responds: "You know my temper."

The true crime series will feature exclusive courtroom footage from his trial as well his phone calls from prison and include interviews with those who knew him.

The Netflix original is produced by the studio behind Making A Murderer and Evil Genius so you know it's going to be a fascinating watch.

At the time of the crime, the American footballer, who had been drafted into the NFL at 20, had just signed a five-year, $40 million (nearly £31million) contract with the New England Patriots.

In 2015, Hernandez was subsequently convicted of first-degree murder, as well as five weapon charges, which required a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for Lloyd's death.

Two years later, the 27-year-old took his own life in his prison cell, days after being acquitted of the 2012 double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, a separate murder double-murder case he was also tried for.

At the time of his death, a judge threw out Hernandez's conviction, citing the legal principle that if a defendant convicted at trial dies before an appeal is heard, they should no longer be considered guilty.

However, the prosecution then appealed, and Massachusetts' highest court reinstated his murder conviction in March.
