amanda knox netflix

Following the success of 'Making a Murderer', Netflix is diving back into the true crime genre with a documentary about Amanda Knox.

Knox – dubbed Foxy Knoxy by the UK tabloid press – was accused of murdering her roommate, a 21-year-old Brit called Meredith Kercher.

Knox's trials were prime tabloid fodder, with the prosecution claiming Knox stabbed Kercher to death during a sex game gone wrong.

She was acquitted last year.

Netflix has released two trailers for the series, each taking opposing points of view. "Believe Her" paints Knox as the victim, with a sympathetic view of her, and includes accusations that some of the evidence was made up.

"Suspect Her", meanwhile, draws on eyewitness testimony that Knox showed no signs of grief following Kercher's death, and was even performing cartwheels.

Netflix undoubtedly hopes the documentary – which airs on September 30th – will replicate the success of 'Making a Murderer', which followed the case of Steven Avery, a man accused of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach. What made the story more compelling was that Avery was previously wrongly imprisoned for 18 years on a false rape charge.
