GRB rides crime wave

US distributor GRB Entertainment has picked up a controversial true-crime documentary as broadcasters continue to ride the wave created by hit series Making a Murderer and The Jinx.

Nelson Serrano: I’m Innocent has been added to GRB’s catalogue ahead of Natpe in Miami this week.

The doc was filmed in the US and Ecuador and focuses on 77-year-old Nelson Serrano, an immigrant businessman on death row after being convicted of murdering four people in Florida – despite the existence of evidence suggesting he was 400 miles away at the time of the crime.

True crime is proving to be the hot genre of 2016 following the success of HBO’s The Jinx last year and, more recently, Making a Murderer on Netflix, which follows the infamous Steven Avery case.

US cablenet Investigation Discovery has commissioned its own Avery doc and has also teamed with award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger, best known for his Paradise Lost trilogy of feature docs, for Judgement Day: Prison or Parole?.
