Went crazy for Making a Murderer in December? Been listening to Serial on your commute? Here are the next true crime stories you should lose sleep over.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story
Okay, so Travolta’s turn as one of O.J.’s defence lawyers borders on parody. But the FX drama’s nuanced fly-on-the-wall treatment of the Trial of the Century makes it worth suffering through.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story can be pre-ordered on DVD now.
The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst
How wide does this HBO docuseries bust open the mysterious case of accused murderer Robert Durst? So much that the cops arrested the dude again based on new evidence from the show.
The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst can be watched on HBO Go.
The Seven Five
Ex-cop Michael Dowd dishes on how he ran a cocaine ring in the late ’80s, leading to New York’s biggest ever corruption scandal. Good luck living that one down.
The Seven Five is available for streaming on Netflix.
A Discovery Channel series following an ongoing homicide investigation that’s still unfolding. Kind of like, you know, the news. But with ominous music and slightly staged True Detective-esque cop banter.
Discovery recently renewed Killing Fields for a second season.
The Central Park Five
This story of how five New York teenagers were wrongfully arrested — and later exonerated — for the brutal rape of a female jogger. Pay close attention, Brendan Dassey.
The Central Park Five is available for streaming on Netflix.
