Netflix's documentary series about the life and death of presenter Jill Dando has now released its first trailer, giving us a look at the examination of one of British history's most high-profile murder investigations.


The series was first announced in January of this year, and comes from production company Empress Films.

It has been directed by Marcus Plowright (Fred and Rose West: Reopened) and executive produced by Emma Cooper (The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes).

The official synopsis for the documentary series says: "British broadcasting legend, Jill Dando, was killed by a single bullet on her doorstep in 1999 in broad daylight. Despite one of the biggest homicide investigations in British history, the murder remains unsolved.

"This three-part series takes viewers through the twists and the turns of a true crime mystery as her family, friends, journalists, investigators and lawyers wrestle with the question: Who Killed Jill Dando?"
