IMDb TV doc to probe Jordan murder case

IMDb TV premiered spy thriller Alex Rider this autumn

Amazon-owned free streaming service IMDb TV has commissioned an original crime documentary series about the murder of Michael Jordan’s father, James.

Moment of Truth comes from Amazon Studios and will premiere early in 2021 on IMDb TV. The series looks at the murder of the beloved husband and father and the subsequent trial.

Directed by Matthew Perniciaro and Clay Johnson, the story of the arrest and conviction of then-teenagers Larry Demery and Daniel Green continues today through the current appeals by Green, who maintains his innocence nearly three decades later.

Perniciaro and Michael Sherman of Bow and Arrow Entertainment and Jimmy Goodmon and Shelly Leslie of Capitol Broadcasting Company serve as executive producers.

IMDb TV, launched by Amazon in 2019, is also working on an as-yet-untitled series with filmmaker Dream Hampton.

The series invites audiences inside that perennial TV favourite the crime procedural drama, spotlighting the genre that has dominated the television landscape and our collective imaginations for decades

“As we expand our slate of premium original programming for IMDb TV, we were captivated by these distinct projects, each designed to uniquely engage audiences through high-quality, thought-provoking and previously untold stories,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of content and programming for IMDb TV.

In November, IMDb TV premiered the spy thriller Alex Rider, an original series based on Anthony Horowitz’s best-selling book franchise. In development is a half-hour coming-of-age series based on High School, the New York Times best-selling memoir by recording artists Tegan and Sara Quin, adapted by Clea DuVall for Amazon Studios and Plan B Entertainment; and Hialeah: Dade F*ckin County, a half-hour family comedy co-created by writers Monique Alvarez and Jessica Lee Williamson.
