Crime investigation television is the new, real-er reality TV. In the past year, entertainment and criminal justice have become intertwined in a way we’ve never seen. Hollywood is dusting off old “Cold Case Files” and re-investigating major murder crimes such as the Steven Avery case in Netflix’s “Making A Murderer” or the infamous O.J. investigation in “The People v. O.J. Simpson; O.J.: Made in America.” Up next? Just the country’s most iconic unsolved murder: The case of JonBenét Ramsey.
“The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey” is a true-crime series about a six-year-old beauty pageant participant who was found dead in her Boulder, Colorado Home. In the upcoming series, a former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst and retired FBI special agent re-examining the 1996 case.
The three-part series airs on Sept 18, 19 and 25. A mere six-hours in total, the show promises to be jam-packed with enlightening new evidence. In addition to the technological advances and new interviews, a replica of key rooms in the house has been constructed in a 50,000-square-foot warehouse to uncover never-before-considered theories.
