A follow-up to Netflix's hit true crime series Making a Murderer is on the way, this one telling another side of the same story.

Convicting a Murderer will examine the case of Steven Avery from the perspective of the law enforcers who helped convict him of first-degree intentional homicide over the 2005 death of photographer Teresa Halbach in Wisconsin.

The new series will be directed by documentary filmmaker Shawn Rech and produced by his partner, Chicago lawyer Andrew Hale.

"When Making a Murderer was produced, many on the law enforcement side of the story could not, or would not, participate in the series, which resulted in a one-sided analysis of the case," says Rech.

"This docu-series will examine the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective. It will also share with viewers the traumatic effects of being found guilty and vilified in the court of public opinion."

Convicting a Murderer is said to have unprecedented access to figures seen in the Netflix series including District Attorney Ken Kratz and lead investigator Tom Fassbender, as well as others.

Meanwhile, Making a Murderer directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are working on an official sequel to their series.
