New True Crime Anthology Series Will Start With JonBenet Ramsey Case

Television has officially got true-crime fever! Following in the footsteps of Netflix’s Making A Murderer, HBO’s The Jinx, FX’s American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson, and, of course, Investigation Discovery’s entire lineup of shows, CBS has ordered a new true crime anthology series to debut in Fall 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the as yet untitled series will focus on one case per limited episodic run, much like Making A Murderer – and the word is, the first installment of the series will reexamine the JonBenet Ramsey case, 20 years after it captured headlines.

In 1996, six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in the basement of her Boulder, Colorado home, having been hit over the head and strangled. Police initially suspected her parents and/or brother of being responsible, but no conclusive evidence pointing to their guilt was ever found, and in fact, her parents were officially exonerated in 2008. The case has been revisited multiple times over the years, but the child beauty pageant queen’s slaying remains unsolved.

The new series will bring together the original investigators as well as new experts to look over the details of the case 20 years later. Sounds pretty juicy to us. Will you be watching?

    Yes. I wondered why ID Didn’t do something along those lines. This case should have been solved already.

  • Anna Toro-Bernard

    definitely, still wonder who got away with this and what else have they done? Great idea for a crime series. Also need a missing person crime series on this channel too.

    Absolutely I am interested. I’ve always wanted justice for that little girl.

    On Investigation Discovery, the ID channel, “The Jon Benet Ramsey Story” will air a 3 night special on September 12, 2016, I’m not sure of the time but probably in the evening. Then on CBS they will also be airing a 3 night special about “Jon Benet Ramsey” on September 18, 2016 at 10 p.m. I will be watching to see what new evidence they now have. I hope they solve the murder of this little girl.

      I guarantee you that there is NO new evidence! They always revisit this case (just like O.J.) and it’s ALL the same stuff we already know with maybe a few theories lumped in for ratings… Trust me they haven’t arrested anyone so they don’t have squat! Sad but so true…
