Netflix just can’t churn out true crime documentaries quick enough.

It’s been a great month for Netflix – House of Cards made a dramatic return, everyone was traumatised by The Haunting of Hill House, and of course season two of Making a Murderer had everyone talking.

Well, fans of The Jinx, The Staircase, MAM etc will be thrilled to hear that Netflix has announced its next true crime project and it’s a goodun’.

The Innocent Man is a six part documentary series based on John Grisham’s best selling non fiction book of the same name.

The story gained widespread attention with the release of Grisham’s book, and focuses on two murders that shook the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s — and the controversial chain of events that followed.

Directed by Clay Tweel (Finders Keepers, Gleason, Out of Omaha), The Innocent Man includes interviews with victims’ friends and families, Ada residents, attorneys, journalists, and others involved in the cases.

Grisham appears, as does attorney Barry Scheck, co-director of The Innocence Project.

Developed as a documentary series by Tweel and Ross Dinerstein, it blends new footage with compelling archival video and photos.

The docuseries will launch globally on December 14.
