Ce document est un bulletin d’information sur NBC news, il s’agit de présenter une nouvelle série d’enquête policière que les gens dévorent en ce moment Making A Murderer. Un premier présentateur parle du phénomène et indique que les gens ont même signé une pétition pour que le président Obama libère Steven Avery. Car en effet, dans les extraits de la série ainsi que dans la bande annonce qui sont commentés par une voix off féminine, nous apprenons que Steven Avery a été condamné une première fois pour aggression sexuele et tentative de meurtre puis libéré après 18 ans de prison grâce à des tests ADN. La série commence en fait par un happy end mais s’avère tragique par la suite. La réalisatrice explique que ce fait divers avait tout pour plaire: une histoire captivante, des personnages complexes, des conflits et de forts enjeux. Dans un second temps, Steven est accusé de nouveau du meurtre de Theresa Halbach et cette fois-ci les preuves l’accablent. Les gens interviewés sont des juges, des avocats et des proches qui ont des opinion très diverses. Les unes n’en croient pas leurs yeux tandis que les autres pensent que Steven est très dangereux et mérite ce qui lui arrive. Un autre ajoute qu’étant donné le système judiciaire, bonne chance pour s’en sortir. Cette série retrace en 10 épisodes les étapes de l’enquète ainsi que les deux procès. On entend la voix de Steven à la fin. Selon lui, la vérité finira par être révélée.
1- Filmed over a 10-year period, Making a Murderer* is an unprecedented real-life thriller about Steven Avery who after he spent 18 years in prison was proved innocent by DNA testing but then found guilty of another crime, which the scriptwriters, lawyers and now viewers start to question. Set in America’s heartland, the series takes viewers inside a high-stakes criminal* case where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear.
2- The filmmakers behind “Making a Murder” cast doubt on the legal process used to imprison* Avery and Dassey, and their work has sparked national interest. Armchair investigators have flooded Twitter and message boards, and key players in the case have appeared on national news and talk shows.
Most people think Steven should be freed*. Authorities involved in the case have called the 10-hour series biased and unreliable.

3- After watching episode one of Making a Murderer, I could not wait to jump into the next episode. The twist at the end of the first episode had me scrambling to make time for the next show. This show really triggered my investigative mind! I was not disappointed. In fact, I’m wondering if this story can even be true. No way this Steven Avery is that unlucky. As the civil case is being built, a horrifying event comes to light. Absolutely incredible. I’m getting a sick feeling watching this series now. Truth is stranger than fiction I guess…
