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 JonBen├â┬⌐t 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 JonBen├â┬⌐t’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!!!
