"Making a Murderer's" Dean Strang is getting his own show
Last December, Making A Murderer simultaneously took us by storm AND put a damper on our holidays. We were outraged by the Steven Avery case, felt our eyes well up with tears over the treatment that Brendan Dassey received, and felt a little puzzled over Ryan Hillegas checking ex-girlfriend Teresa’s voicemail after her unfortunate death. But of course, every horrible story has a silver lining, and for many, it was Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, Avery’s incredible defense attorneys. These two seemed to form quite a friendship during the trial, and are currently traveling the country with “A Conversation on Justice Tour,” where the two of them discuss law on a personal level.
Also, let’s be honest. Dean and Jerry were kind of unlikely heartthrobs.
For those of you who favored Dean, here’s some solid news — he has signed on for his very own true crime docuseries called Dean Strang: Road to Justice. As of this moment, it’s unclear as to where (or when) this series will air, but there’s a good chance that Netflix will probably be interested, especially since they helped “discover” him through Making A Murderer.
What we do know is that he’ll be working with a recently launched production company called Covert Media, and the docuseries will have a total of eight episodes. Our boy Strang will be trying to unveil more cases which, similar to Avery’s, the criminal justice system was shown to be flawed.
We know we’ll definitely be watching (and crossing our fingers for a Buting cameo) — will you?
