Steven Avery’s case, made known by the popular Netflix docu-series Making A Murderer, is getting a second look with Investigation Discovery’s new special. Front Page: The Steven Avery Story will be diving deeper into Avery’s proposed wrongful conviction of murder. The special looks to address some critical details and evidence that the Netflix documentary may have missed.
Investigation Discovery has joined forces with NBC News’ Peacock Productions to create this special and will be hosted by NBC Dateline’s Keith Morrison.
During a Television Critics Association press panel, Investigation Discovery’s President Henry Schleiff said:
As the country’s most experienced true crime network, we feel compelled to address some critical details missing from the case as presented in the Netflix documentary…to provide critical, crucial evidence and testimony that answer many questions surrounding Steven Avery.
The special is set to premiere at the end of this month in light of two petitions signed by a total of nearly 300,000 people demanding Avery’s release.
