The disappearance of Madeleine McCann is to be the subject of a new Netflix series.
The streaming giant has made a name for itself in the true crime arena, with Making a Murderer’s investigation into Steven Avery’s case becoming an international sensation, turning people around the world into armchair detectives. Since then, it has profiled the controversial case surrounded Amanda Knox who was acquitted for murder, after four years in prison, delved into the death of JonBenet Ramsay in Casting JonBenet and exhumed the cold case of Sister Cathy Cesnik, who was killed while at the Archbishop Keough High School, in The Keepers.
Now, Digital Spy reports that Netflix is turning its true crime lens on to one of the most notorious cases in recent UK history: the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The three-year-old went missing from her hotel room in 2007, while on holiday in Praia de Luz in Portugal. A media campaign sparked a nationwide obsession and a case that continues even to this day, as new theories and developments occasionally come to light. Earlier this year, the BBC aired a documentary looking back at the last 10 years of the mystery. Now, Netflix is following suit.
The eight-part documentary will reportedly feature interviews with investigators and other figures from the case. Further details about the untitled programme are not yet known.
