Netflix series Making a Murderer is the most popular project to inspire distrust in the justice system since the West Memphis Three went free. Ten hour-long episodes were enough to provide a lot of information about the Steven Avery caseā€”but it seems thereā€™s still more to tell, which a new doc will attempt to do.

The intense interest in the Wisconsin murder has inspired all manner of internet speculation, memes and meme-related merchandise, and Investigation Discovery to look into other possible instances of injustice hurry a news special about the Avery case into production. It sounds like the new doc will take a different angle than the Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos-directed series, Variety reports:

The news program, which is produced by NBCā€™s Peacock Productions, will be part of IDā€™s ā€œFront Pageā€ series and be hosted by ā€œDateline NBCā€ correspondent Keith Morrison. It promises to look at critical details surrounding the Steven Avery murder trial at the center of the Netflix project.

ā€œWe feel compelled to display some of the critical details missing from the Netflix production,ā€ said Henry Schleiff, group president, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America, said at TCA. ā€œIn an attempt to provide critical and crucial testimonies that surround ā€¦ Steven Avery.ā€

Hmm. One has to wonder if controversial former Wisconsin DA Ken Kratzā€”who refused to participate in Making a Murdererā€”will agree to sit for Investigation Discoveryā€™s cameras. Front Page: The Steven Avery Story is currently in production and will air sometime later this month.
