Netflix Are Making A Docu-Series About The Disappearance Of Madeline McCann
Netflix have announced that their next true crime series will look into the disappearance of Madeline McCann.
It will be eight episodes long, and include interviews from investigators, witnesses, and key figures from the case. It is not yet known whether or not Madeline’s parents – Kate and Gerry McCann – have agreed to participate in this documentary.
Madeline went missing in 2007, while on holiday in Praia de Luz, Portugal with her parents and two younger siblings.
Aged three at the time, she was taken from her hotel room while her parents were dining at a nearby restaurant.
It’s certainly not the first time that Netflix have examined a controversial unsolved crime.
In recent docu-series The Keepers, they looked into who was responsible for the murder of nun Cathy Cesnik, who was found dead in January 1970.
They posited that she may have uncovered sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, and been killed as part of a conspiracy cover-up.
Netflix have also made documentaries about solved crimes. They recently made a film with Amanda Knox, who was acquitted of the 2007 murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, after spending four years in prison.
They also famously looked into Steven Avery’s case in Making A Murderer, asking whether or not Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were actually guilty of the murder of photographer Theresa Halbach (both men are currently serving life sentences for the crime).
It is not yet known when their series on Madeline McCann will air.
