Yesterday, NBC announced that they were joining in on the popularity of ‘Making a Murderer’ and ‘American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson’ by creating their own true crime television series, focussing on the infamous 1989 murder case by the Menéndez brothers.
Today, CBS has truly solidified this new-found fascination with the announcement of their true crime contribution, which is currently untitled.
The TV series will focus on a different case each season, much like ‘American Crime Story’, with the first season being about the famous murder of six-year-old beauty pageant queen, JonBenét Ramsay.
Emmy winner Tom Forman is set to produce the show, along with production company ‘Critical Content’.
The title and episode count have not yet been confirmed, but sources for The Hollywood Reporter say that it will likely be similar to ‘Making a Murderer‘s 10-episode format.
The show will reunite all of the original investigators of the case, as well as new experts who will reexamine the evidence.
It could be out this year, which could be timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of JonBenét Ramsay‘s death.
