Why is it that after a long, hard day of work we want to unwind with a glass of wine and… murder?
From In Cold Blood to Serial, America is obsessed with true crime. The genre has simultaneously stoked our most primal fears, reaffirmed our safety, and transformed us into armchair prosecutors. As a culture we pay close attention, both to piece together the puzzle but also to understand the twisted humanity…What leads someone to commit a crime? And could we be the next victim?
In this season of Spectacle, we’ll delve into the history of true crime -- from the cases that shook us to our core, to its passionate audience… and what narratives and stereotypes it reinforces in our culture.This is Spectacle Season 3: True Crime.
