The case, from 2001, is notorious as Michael has always insisted that Kathleen’s death was an accident and that her head injuries were casued by a fall at home.

Crime novelist Michael claims he was outside by the pool when Kathleen fell down the stairs while drunk and he called the police as soon as he found the body.

Police at the time arrested him and claimed he bludgeoned her to

‘Pose’: Watch the Trailer for Ryan Murphy’s History-Making FX Drama

FX on Thursday unveiled the first full-length trailer and premiere date for Ryan Murphy’s history-making drama Pose.

Pose looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in 1980s New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world. The series will premiere Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m.

Toplined by frequent Murphy collaborator Evan Peters, Kate Mara and James Van Der Beek, Pose features the biggest cast of transgender actors in series-regular roles as well as the largest recurring LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted U.S. TV series. The five trans actors are MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross, with each one playing authentic transgender characters.

“The show is about the search for being authentic, about creating opportunities,” Murphy told reporters in January. “We’re past an era of straight men playing these roles. It’s time to think differently and offer

Jordan Peele and Amazon are making a Lorena Bobbitt documentary series

Get Out writer/director Jordan Peele is going from the sunken place to one of the most sensational stories of the 1990s.

The Oscar winner is producing Lorena, a four-part documentary series for Amazon about Lorena Bobbitt, the Virginia woman who made headlines after she cut off the penis of husband John Wayne Bobbitt with a kitchen knife in 1993 and threw it out her car window.

Amazon’s announcement suggests that Lorena will participate.

A quarter-century later, Peele says in a statement, “when we hear the name Bobbitt. we think of one of the most sensational incidents to ever be catapulted into a full-blown media spectacle. With this project, Lorena has a platform to tell her truth as well as engage in a critical conversation about gender dynamics, abuse, and her demand for justice. This is Lorena’s story and we’re honored to help her tell it.”

American Crime Story Producers Are Hunting for Their Own Making a Murderer Season

Producing super-team Brad Simpson and Nina Jacobson are responsible, individually and collectively, for major money-making franchises like Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Hunger Games. When they decided to try their hand at TV in 2016, with American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, they hit ratings and awards-season gold. The second season of the FX franchise, titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, wrapped up Wednesday night to a slightly more muted reception—and the pair acknowledge that fans have wondered why there wasn’t more of the titular Versace family in this show.

“We’ve obviously seen the tweets,” Simpson said as part of a wide-ranging interview with Vanity Fair’s Still Watching: Versace podcast. “ ‘Oh, The Assassination of Gianni Versace is really Andrew [Cunanan]’s story.’ There’s a lot of surprise, and I think we were a little underprepared.” Jacobson and Simpson went on to explain how that reaction will impact

True-crime TV series ties a serial killer to ‘Making a Murderer’ case

A new true-crime documentary series claims that one man was responsible for several of the most high-profile murders of the past 70 years — including that of Teresa Halbach, whose killing was the focus of the Netflix series “Making a Murderer.” 

“It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards” debuts at 9 p.m. April 16 on Paramount Network, the cable TV channel formerly known as Spike.

Blumhouse is Making a True Crime Series About a Case No One Wants Solved

Blumhouse is right to get in on the true crime trend, but they should probably choose a new direction for it.

Last year, Blumhouse Productions contributed to a 10-episode revival of the AE true crime series Cold Case Files, each episode of which documents the investigation of unsolved murders. According to Deadline, the studio is now set to deepen their investment in the true crime genre with No One Saw A Thing, a TV series to be made for SundanceTV and the streaming service Sundance Now. The description of the program is as follows:

The six-episode series examines an unsolved and mysterious death in the American Heartland and the corrosive effects of vigilantism in small town America. The case garnered international attention in the early 1980s after a resident was shot dead in front of almost 60 townspeople. These witnesses deny having seen anything, to this very day.

This reads as deliberately vague, but true crime

A New Making A Murderer Series Is In The Works

Convicting A Murderer is coming, and it’s about time…

Netflix’s 2015 true crime documentary Making a Murderer has yet to drop a second season despite the initial success of the series. The series followed convicted murderer Steven Avery and how he was possibly framed in the killing of photographer Teresa Halbach.

Netflix promised the release of new episodes last year but fans have yet to see any sign of a sequel. It is now being reported that a brand-new series about the case against Avery is currently being filmed.

The series is being made by Shawn Rech, who was behind the documentary Murder in the Park, and is set to be called Convicting a Murderer. The new series will focus on the case built by the state of Wisconsin against Steven Avery for Halbach’s 2005 murder

Until that releases, how about

Making a Murderer Followup Series Officially Begins Production

Convicting a Murderer, a followup to the Netflix true-crime series Making a Murderer, has begun production in Wisconsin. After 10 years of painstaking filming, Making a Murderer debuted on Netflix in 2015 and almost immediately stirred a public debate over the possible wrongful murder conviction of Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, for the grisly 2005 murder and mutilation of photographer Teresa Halbach. While it seemed like an open and shut case on the surface, the series raised significant questions about the integrity of the case and possible motives by local authorities to target Avery.

The true-crime murder-case angle of Making a Murderer immediately drew comparisons to the podcast Serial and the HBO series The Jinx. Enhanced public scrutiny in the wake of the controversial show seemed to show results: in 2016 Brendan Dassey’s conviction was overturned and he was ordered released from prison later that year (Dassey remains incarcerated pending an appeal to the Supreme
