US distributor GRB Entertainment is prepping a controversial true crime doc about a businessman on death row in America for MipDoc next month.
Nelson Serrano: I’m Innocent is from filmmaker Jeanette Hinostroza, who will be at Cannes as a speaker on the panel True Crime: What’s the Buzz on April 2.
The show tells the story of Serrano, an immigrant businessman who was allegedly illegally taken from his home in Ecuador to face a trial in Florida where he was convicted of murdering four people.
Serrano, his family, and his lawyers are now seeking to prove his innocence for the crimes.
“As the profound success of Netflix’s Making a Murderer proves, true life crime programming is a hot topic and with increasing audience appetites for factual justice programming, we expect the film to reach many of our broadcast partners,” said Mike Lolato, senior VP of international distribution at GRB.
