MIPDoc Take-Aways: True Crime: What's the Buzz?
If you have missed our sessions at MIPDoc this year, you can relax and watch the session "True Crime: What's the Buzz?" now online on Youtube.
True crime has enthralled and entertained ever since Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood (1966). Now the Netflix series Making a Murderer (2015) has made a splash and the True Crime wave is rising to even greater heights. We have created a hunger for True Crime stories. Audiences can binge on True Crime anytime, anywhere. A virtual jury of millions of armchair detectives wait for their next big case. Our three panelists produce and direct True Crime stories in the UK, Asia and Ecuador. They will investigate the real risks of producing True Crime when the pressure is on to deliver more and more stories about tragedy that must also entertain. Featuring an exclusive interview with the Oscar winning producers of SPOTLIGHT, Best Picture, 2016 Academy Awards.
