Coming off the success of the Serial podcast and
HBO’s The Jinx, every murder-mystery lover out there has a brand new
case to obsess over. Netflix dropped all 10-episodes for streaming of the
docu-series Making a Murdererin December, and in less than three weeks
it has taken the world by storm.

For those who haven’t binge-watched the addicting show yet
(what were you doing over your holiday break?), Making a Murderer tells
the story of Steven Avery, a man falsely imprisoned for sexual assault and
later exonerated after 18 years in prison, who after his release was
subsequently charged for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Filmed over the course
of 10-years by filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, the series takes a
closer look at the prosecution’s investigation, shedding a light on the
potential injustice in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.
To reveal any more information would be unfair as the show
must be experienced first-hand.

Ricky Gervais, Chrissy Teigen, Emmy Rossum, Mia Farrow, Rosie O’Donnell, Mandy
Moore, Mindy Kaling and more -- have all tweeted about the show, we rounded up a few stars we think would be perfect if Making a Murderer ever gets a
TV or film adaptation.
