A sequel to "Making a Murderer" has long been planned since the Netflix documentary took the world by storm and now comes word that a followup is on the way -- sort of.
Cleveland filmmaker Shawn Rech has begun production on "Convicting a Murderer," a documentary that will tell the story of the trial of Steven Avery from the prosecution's side, according to Deadline.com.
Rech is working with will work with several people involved in the case, including former Calument County district attorney Ken Kratz and the lead investigator, in the case, Tom Fassbender.
Avery is serving a life sentence for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. His nephew, Brendan Dassey, is also serving a life sentence for the crime. Their case was made famous in the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer, which called into question the prosecution's evidence.
Rech told Deadline.com that the Netflix series was one-sided because many of the people on the prosecution would or could not participate.
