One of the best resources that Netflix has in abundance are hard-hitting documentaries series that theyâ€™ve either bought or commissioned for their streaming service. Although documentaries have always been popular with some, Netflix is really the first media company to make documentaries accessible to all and are responsible for some of the most interesting and informative programming available today.
Although Netflix does take movies and TV off its streaming service all the time, they always have a good cache of documentary movies and series available for viewing. Here are some of the best docs that Netflix has to offer.
Making A Murderer
Making a Murderer was a series that was extremely popular a few years ago when it first launched on Netflix in December 2015. It was filmed over the course of 10 years, and follows Stephen Avery, a man who served 18 years in prison on a wrongful conviction for sexual assault and attempted murder and sued the county upon his release in 2003.
In 2005, Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were convicted of the murder of another woman and were sent to prison. Each of the 10 episodes is between 47 and 66 minutes long and follows the two men as they move through the judicial system from arrest all the way to conviction.
