The Staircase

The Staircase is a French documentary mini-series about the murder trial of American novelist Michael Peterson, accused in 2001 of murdering his wife in their home. The defense gave the filmmakers incredible access to strategy sessions, and every episode has a thrilling twist or revelation that would be considered improbable in the extreme in a work of fiction. Also includes compelling shots of the jury during the trial, the likes of which I don't think I've ever seen in a doc.
