CBS Developing True-Crime Anthology Series; JonBenét Ramsey Case Up First

JonBenet Ramsey

Goodbye, reboots and revivals. Hello, true-crime series.

Keeping up with the current trend of crime-based anthologies, CBS is developing its own unscripted project that will focus on a different real-life case each season.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the first season will focus on the murder of JonBenét Ramsey, the 6-year-old beauty queen who was found murdered in her parents’ Colorado home in 1996.

The untitled series will reunite the original Ramsey investigators, as well as new experts who will re-examine the unsolved case. An episode count has not yet been determined.

The news of CBS’ series comes one day after NBC ordered Law & Order: True Crime, a scripted anthology that will dedicate its first season to brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez, who were convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents and sentenced to life in prison.
