The true crime fad is officially dead…
First Netflix captured America's attention with Making a Murderer, then FX upped the game with The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and soon NBC will be bringing anthologies to the masses with Law & Order: True Crime.
But the latest news out of CBS may put the nail in the coffin of true crime.
It was announced on Thursday that the network that brings you 2 Broke Girls and CSI: Cyber will be making their own true crime docuseries based on the murder of JonBenét Ramsey!
This Christmas marks the 20-year anniversary of the 6-year-old's death, so CBS is currently in final talks to make their own unscripted docuseries set to air this Fall.
While JonBenét's case is one of the most captivating American horror stories, we can't help but feel like they're going to really screw this up — Making a Murderer was planned for literally ten years while the case was ongoing, so this untitled project will probably play like a really long, drawn out episode of Unsolved Mysteries.
But at least this guarantees Katy Perry some work. LOLz!!!
