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?
