Netflix's 'Unsolved Mysteries' Is Already Bringing In Credible Tips From Viewers
The six-part true crime series is a reboot of the NBC and CBS show that ran for 12 years between 1987 and 1999.
Much like the UK's Crimewatch, it was credited was bringing increased attention to the cases featured and solving more than 260 mysteries - and it seems the new instalment is already seeing some promising results.
According to show producers, they've already received 20 "credible" tips involving the six unsolved cases featured in the series.
Executive producer Terry Dunn Meurer, who co-created the show told USA TODAY: "We have received tips," adding that where credible, "we pass them on to the appropriate authorities."
Speaking on the leads that had come in just a day since the show landed on Netflix on 1st July, Meurer said: "It's only been 24 hours. We're hoping there's a lot of people who still haven't watched and maybe this weekend they'll sit down and binge the episodes and we'll get more leads."
This sounds super promising.
The new format, which viewers have been gripped by all week, blends its signature elements with a more modern and immersive kind of storytelling.
Each episode explores an unsolved case, using a combination of re-enactments, interviews and archive footage to delve into the mystery.
Along the way, you can expect testimony from journalists, detectives, friends and family members.
Cases include that of Rey Rivera - who was believed to have died by suicide after jumping off Baltimore's Belvedere Hotel roof.
Viewers will watch as the series delves into whether Rey's tragic death was all that it seemed.
Another examines the case of Patrice Endres, who disappeared from work in the middle of the day, within just a 13-minute window of time.
There's also the tragic case of Count Xavier Dupond de Ligonnes' wife and four children - who were found dead under the porch of their family home back in 2011.
A manhunt ensued after he was believed to have murdered them, but he was never found.
The fourth episode in the series focuses on the case of Alonzo Brooks, who had been missing for one month when police found his body in an area they had already searched.
