Will our collective obsession with Making A Murderer ever end? Doubtful, especially with Steven Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner vowing to prove who really killed Teresa Halbach, not to mention plans for a second season of the docu-series already in the works. Oh, and then there’s this bit of exciting news: STRANG AND BUTING ARE GOING ON TOUR!
Dean Strang and Jerry Buting are the “breakout stars” of the series, having represented Steven Avery during his 2006 trial. MAM was full of some pretty reprehensible people, so Strang and Buting, with their earnestness, morality and articulate assessments of the court proceedings, were arguably the documentary’s heroes.
Whether you’re still obsessing about the case against Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, or just want to learn more about the criminal justice system and its flaws, you’re going to want to see Strang and Buting when they roll through a town near you. Each night of the Conversation On Justice Tour will feature the two attorneys discussing the Avery case in depth, as well as the broader implications for the justice system as a whole, followed by a Q&A with the audience. No one better ask Dean Strang what conditioner he uses – that’s my question, dammit. (His hair is so shiny!)
Tickets for the Conversation On Justice Tour, which will hit 27 cities across the U.S., go on sale on Friday. You can find more information on the website, as well as the tour’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
