Barely one week after CBS confirmed rumours it was producing a documentary series about the 1996 unsolved murder of JonBenét Ramsey, we’ve already got ourselves a trailer.
‘The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey‘ is a six-hour docu-thriller that teams up the original FBI investigators with new experts to try and get to the bottom of the child pageant queen’s murder. What that essentially means is: old evidence, new technology, behavioural experts, and a whole lotta baiting for Making A Murderer fans. We’re going to watch the shit out of it.
“This little girl’s homicide to this day has been unresolved,” says retired FBI agent James Fitzgerald in the trailer. “In my opinion, I think we can change that right now.”
No charges were ever filed, but now that JonBenét’s murder is reaching its 20th anniversary, a number of networks are cashing in on renewed interest. Lifetime TV ordered the TV movie ‘Who Killed JonBenét‘ as part of their autumn line-up, and JonBenét’s now 29-year-old brother Burke will be appearing on Dr. Phil around the same time. Weird.
‘The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey’ will air from September 18 to 25.
