TRUTH & JUSTICE: THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE (OXYGEN)
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:
5/7/19
STATUS:
currently in development (2020-2021 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to series
DESCRIPTION:
(from Oxygen's press release, May 2019) A true crime series based on the wildly successful podcast Truth & Justice that will see host Bob Ruff as he re-investigates the notorious West Memphis Three case. The series will focus on the brutal murders of three eight-year-old boys back in 1993 and the three teenagers who stood trial and were tried and convicted of these deaths. In 2011, new DNA evidence was discovered, and they were able to enter a controversial plea which allowed "The West Memphis Three" to assert their innocence while acknowledging prosecutors did have enough evidence to convict them. They were subsequently released. It's now been 25 years since the murders and there are more questions than answers. If the three convicted men didn't do it, then who killed the boys? What else really could have happened that day? Through exclusive, never before seen interviews and help from various experts, Ruff will seek to find the truth once and for all.
