New Netflix true crime documentary investigates infamous murder mystery

The three-part series will be available to watch on the streaming service very soon.

Netflix has unveiled a first look at its upcoming true crime documentary series Who Killed Jill Dando?, which turns a spotlight on an infamous murder mystery.


The three-part show revolves around the killing of BBC journalist, television presenter and newsreader Jill Dando - who in April 1999 was shot dead outside her home in Fulham in southwest London.

The English media personality was 37 years old at the time of her death.

Despite her level of fame and one of the biggest homicide investigations in UK history, the case is currently unsolved.

The plot synopsis for the documentary from Netflix about the murder reads:


"British broadcasting legend, Jill Dando, was killed by a single bullet on her doorstep in 1999 in broad daylight.

"Despite one of the biggest homicide investigations in British history, the murder remains unsolved.

"This three-part series takes viewers through the twists and the turns of a true crime mystery as her family, friends, journalists, investigators and lawyers wrestle with the question: Who Killed Jill Dando?"

In the first trailer for the programme, Dando is described as "the nation's sweetheart' and the "golden girl of British television".

The teaser also highlights several of the theories as to who could have been responsible for the media personality's death.

Who Killed Jill Dando? will premiere on Netflix on 26 September.
