Netflix Unveil the Debut Trailer and Poster for Thirteen-Part Documentary Series THE STAIRCASE Ahead of Global Launch in June
Today, Netflix have announce the release date of June 8 for forthcoming true crime series THE STAIRCASE, a Thirteen-Part Documentary Series Featuring Three Netflix Original Episodes!
About ‘The Staircase’
‘The Staircase’ is a gripping real-life courtroom thriller, offering a rare and revealing inside-look at a high-profile murder trial and is an engrossing examination of contemporary American justice. It is the compelling story of Michael Peterson, a crime novelist accused of killing wife Kathleen after she is found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their home, and the 16-year judicial battle that followed.
Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Jean-Xavier de Lestrade was granted unprecedented access to the case immediately following Kathleen’s death in the Peterson’s North Carolina mansion. De Lestrade’s cameras were on hand to capture every moment of this extraordinary story from arrest to verdict, following in intimate detail Peterson’s home, the family and his defence team as it considered its strategic options.
Netflix will air three brand new episodes alongside the original series.
