There is just too much good television going round these days, whether it be terrestrial channels, Amazon, Hulu or Netflix, whose original content gets bigger and bigger as the months go past.
Today, Netflix have released a new trailer for The Keepers, their latest original factual show that is set to appeal to the millions of fans of their other original documentary series, Making a Murderer. The show tells the story of a nun in the US, known as Sister Cathy, who was murdered in Baltimore in over 40 years ago but which is still to this day unsolved and was rumoured to have been covered up.
Similarly to Murderer, the show uses old and new interviews with relatives and friends of Cathy as well as journalists, officials from the government at those who live in the area in an attempt to find out the truth. Through the seven-part series, director Ryan White (The Cast Aginst 8) delves deeper into the mystery and soon enough it becomes clear that the search isn’t into the murder but into the cover-up, which many believe is what happened in the aftermath of the horrendous event. And if comparison’s to Murderer are true, we could have a brand binge-watch show on our hands.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
“From director Ryan White (The Case Against 8, Good Ol’ Freda) comes The Keepers, a riveting seven-part documentary series about the unsolved murder of a Baltimore nun and the horrific secrets and pain that linger nearly five decades after her death. In contrast to this dark crime are the inspiring, emotional stories from survivors of child sexual abuse and conversations with two retired women who have spent years working tirelessly on the case.”
The Keepers airs it’s seven-part show across the globe on Netflix on May 19th.
