There will be a new show tackling Steven Avery's murder case, titled Convicting a Murderer. This will be a follow-up to the hit Netflix series Making a Murderer and it will be handled by the filmmaker Shawn Rech.

Convicting a Murderer will be shedding a light on the law enforcement who successfully managed to put Avery in prison. This, too, will oppose some statements from Making a Murderer as a lot of people are saying it is biased to Teresa Halbach first-degree murder case.

In a statement, via Metro, Rech said that when the Netflix series was made, a lot of the law enforcement's side of the story was not revealed in the show. Thus, it just featured one side of the investigation.

So, in Convicting a Murderer, it is set to unveil the "unprecedented access" to other characters that have appeared in Making a Murderer. In fact, two of them will be District Attorney Ken Kratz and Lead Investigator Tom Fassbender.

"This docu-series will examine the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective," Rech added. It will also show the viewers Avery's traumatic effects of being accused guilty and judged by the public.

On the other hand, in an e-mail to USA Today, Kratz said that he is welcoming the making of Convicting a Murderer. He was the one who gained convictions of Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, in separate trials in 2007. The two are now serving life imprisonment.

"I can confirm that I have agreed to be interviewed by Mr. Rech for his eight-part series about the Avery and Dassey cases," he said. He also added that Fassbender and other law enforcement officials, who have held the investigation of Halbach's murder, will also speak out.

Kratz went on to say that most of these police enforcers didn't have the chance to be interviewed for Making a Murderer. If truth be told, they were even accused of planting evidence to murdering Halbach themselves without getting their side of the story. So, with the coming of Convicting a Murderer, he is hoping the truth will finally come out.

Convicting a Murderer will be an eight-part docu-series that will air in the fall of 2019. It will be filmed in Appleton and produced by Transitions Studio. As the show is not yet sold, no network is announced yet.
