Netflix has revealed their best upcoming true crime series and they sound brilliant.

There’s just too much good TV out there these days and there aren’t enough hours in the day to get through it all.

I’ve made my peace with that fact, so naturally there are going to be TV shows that go under the radar or you just don’t get round to watching.

Chernobyl, The Last Kingdom and Killing Eve: Season Two are some of the biggest and best at the moment, but if you’re a fan of the ol’ true crime then listen here and listen well.

Netflix have four coming your way over the next few weeks and I bet at least one of them will tickle your fancy.

Read on, and make a note of when they’re out.

Killer Ratings – 31st May

The seven-part series will explore the bizarre tale of a Brazilian TV host who allegedly ordered murders in a bid to boost his TV ratings.

Wallace Souza became famous when he started hosting Canal Livre, a TV news programme broadcast in a remote and lawless part of Brazil.

As the show gained in popularity, Souza is accused of ordering the murders he covered on the show in a bid to ensure his programme remained a hit, with his own bodyguard accusing him of being at the head of a criminal organisation.

The Alcàsser Murders  – 14th June

The Alcàsser Murders will analyse and investigate one of the most gruesome and controversial crimes in Spanish history. At the time, the triple murder in 1992 captivated a nation, not only for its brutality but because it still remains unresolved.

It’s a complicated case that but its controversial nature will no doubt make for a compelling watch.

The Confession Tapes: Season 2  – 21st June

Season one went down a storm, presenting six cases of possible false confessions which lead to murder convictions of the featured people. In each case, the documentary presents alternate views of how the crime could have taken place and features experts on false confessions, criminal law, miscarriages of justice and psychology.

Expect more of the same in season two.

Exhibit A – 28th June

This series will show how innocent people have been convicted of crimes with dubious forensic tools and techniques, such as cadaver dogs and touch DNA.

If you were a fan of The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann and in particular that scene with the sniffer dogs, I imagine you’ll be well into this.

There’s plenty to keep you ticking over there, folks. Have at it.
