While we're waiting for twitter to come back online, why not busy yourselves with the latest Making a Murderer update.
Time Magazine is reporting that Netflix is considering a second series to Making a Murderer. Given the success of their current series, it seems a no brainer, but it may not be that easy. When speaking on The Anton Savage Show last Friday, documentary makers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said they'd have to go through Avery's current lawyers. In spite of this, it seems they do have access.
Speaking on Sunday via a TCA panel in Pasadena, California, Ricciardi said: "I think today marks four weeks since the series launched and what we’ve managed to do in the past four weeks is we’ve had several telephone conversations with Steven Avery and we did record those calls with the eye of including them in future episodes should there be more episodes. But we’ve not returned to Wisconsin in the past four weeks."
Demos added: "As we’ve said before, in relation to this story, this story is ongoing, these cases are open, but it’s real life. You don’t know what’s going to happen. We are ready to follow these. If there are significant developments, we’ll be there.”
As for whether Steven's seen the documentary himself, Ricciardi said: "Steven does not have access to the series, he asked the warden and social worker whether he would be able to see it, his request was denied." Of course he was.
Meanwhile, there's an interview with Steven Avery's defence lawyers - Dean Strang and Jerry Buting - doing the rounds, where they're asked (at the 2:35 mark in the below video) if they're "convinced of his innocence". They're not, but they're also not "convinced of his guilt." They're also reiterating the importance of re-testing the blood which they believe was planted in Teresa Halbach's RAV 4.
According to The Hollywood Reporter: "When asked straight up if they were convinced of Avery’s innocence, Strang said: 'I am not convinced of his guilt. I am not at all convinced of his guilt, never have been.' When the hosts asked if he had some doubt of Avery’s innocence, Strang replied 'absolutely,' adding “if it was OK to convict people on maybes, I wouldn’t be worried about this, but it’s not.' The duo reiterated that evidence was planted... Buting said he has received numerous calls from scientists the world over, telling him that DNA testing has greatly improved since the early 2000s and the blood which the two lawyers argued was planted should be retested."
