Making A Murderer – the American documentary television series that premiered on Netflix in December 2015 – featured 10 episodes, written and directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. Making A Murderer is one of the most widely viewed television series and has already generated a considerable amount of controversy. Season 1 of Making A Murderer, filmed over the course of ten years, explored the story of Steven Avery, a man from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin who served 18 years in prison for the wrongful conviction of sexual assault and attempted murder of Penny Beernsten, before being absolved from all charges in 2003 by DNA evidence. Viewers were hooked to the events around the arrest, prosecution and conviction of Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in the murder, based on his confession under interrogation.
