Show Summary

Inspired by a newspaper article from 2005, directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos have spent the last decade documenting an unprecedented real-life thriller that spans more than thirty years. Set in America’s Heartland, Making a Murderer follows the harrowing story of Steven Avery, an outsider from the wrong side of the tracks, convicted and later exonerated of a brutal assault. His release triggered major criminal justice reform legislation, and he filed a lawsuit that threatened to expose corruption in local law enforcement and award him millions of dollars. But in the midst of his very public civil case, he suddenly finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime. The series won 4 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series, Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Program - Eighteen Years Lost, Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Program - Fighting for Their Lives and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program - Indefensible.
