Netflix release the gripping trailer for their next true crime documentary and it looks terrific

Guaranteed to be your next addiction.

"If I wrote The Innocent Man as a novel, folks probably wouldn't believe it."

Given the fact that John Grisham is the man that crafted some of the world's most beloved crime thrillers like The Client and The Firm, that's one hell of a statement to make but after watching the trailer for his latest effort, the beloved author could be right.

Just like they did with Part One of Making A Murderer, Netflix are about to consume your Christmas viewing because they've released the trailer for their latest true crime documentary, The Innocent Man, and it looks absolutely fantastic.

In a story that gained national attention with John Grisham’s best-selling non-fiction book, The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town, the six-part documentary series The Innocent Man focuses on two murders that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s - and the controversial chain of events that followed.

Two murders, four convictions, and a town full of secrets. Based on John Grisham's only true crime best-seller, The Innocent Man, an old case that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma in the 1980s is re-opened with unbelievable evidence that has everyone questioning if the right men were charged, or if the killer is still out there.

Directed by Clay Tweel (Finders Keepers, Gleason, Out of Omaha), The Innocent Man includes interviews with victims’ friends and families, Ada residents, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the cases.

Grisham also appears in the feature, as does attorney Barry Scheck (co-director of the Innocence Project).

Developed as a documentary series by Tweel and Ross Dinerstein, it blends new footage with compelling archival video and photos.

The Innocent Man is available to watch on Netflix from 14 December.
