The docu follows Wisconsin native Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in prison for rape and was freed after DNA linked another man to the crime. In the midst of a civil case he filed that threatened to expose corruption in the system, he was arrested for another murder, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. The docu detailing his second arrest and conviction sparked outrage and has resulted in two viewer-circulated petitions demanding Avery’s release.
Late Night With Seth Meyers opened its first episode of 2016 with Making A Talk Show Host, a parody complete with halting phone calls, clearly recognizable Wisconsin accents and a shot of Meyers with beard that looks an awful lot like Avery’s.
