Netflix's New True-Crime 'Killer Inside' Looks Like Its Darkest One Yet
We're only just recovering from binge-watching You - and now the streaming platform is has already come through with our new obsession.
The three-part series covers the life of former NFL star, Aaron Hernandez who between the years of 2007 and 2013, was in court for six shootings, in which three people lost their lives.
Posting a trailer online this morning, Netflix promised to "go beyond the headlines" revealing how the footballer "went from in-demand athlete to wanted man".
And if the trailer is anything to go by, true crime fans will not be disappointed.
The New England Patriots star signed a five-year $40 million (£30.4 million) deal with the club in 2010, but just three years in and he was convicted for the murder of his future brother-in-law, Odin Lloyd as well as the double murder of two Boston men that had taken place in 2012.
