When most people think of Netflix, they think about original series such as House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black and On My Block. While original series have fueled Netflix’s run to the top, they’ve also had their fair share of success with true documentaries. Over the years, Netflix has seen success with the release of The Keepers, Making A Murderer and Abducted In Plain Sight. This week, Netflix is hoping to achieve the same level of success with The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is set to hit the streaming service this Friday. The series tells the true story of a young girl who disappeared from the Praia de Luz resort in Portugal while on vacation with her family. The series will consist of a mixture of interviews, archival footage and reenactments. Friends of the McCann family are set to appear in the series, but the parents of Madeleine McCann will not.
The film is directed by Chris Smith of Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. Behind the scenes, Pulse Films and Paramount Television will produce the series and Emma Cooper and Thomas Benski will act as executive producers. Check out the full trailer above.
