We just can’t seem to get enough of our true crime fix from Netflix as another mini-series is heading to the streaming giant in January. “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez” is a new 3-part series examining what led to the murderous fall and shocking death of former NFL superstar Aaron Hernandez. The show features exclusive courtroom footage, Hernandez’s phone calls from prison, and interviews with those who knew Hernandez. The series, from the studio that brought us Making a Murderer, arrives globally on January 15th and you can see the synopsis and final trailer below.
As a gifted young football athlete from Bristol, Connecticut, Aaron Hernandez had capitalized rapidly on his promise, playing for a top tier college program before being drafted into the National Football League at the age of 20. But in 2013, fresh off of a newly inked five-year, $40 million contract with the New England Patriots, Hernandez would become a household name for the most infamous murder case involving an American athlete since OJ Simpson. Hernandez’s trials for the brutal killing of Odin Lloyd and two Boston-area men yielded a Pandora’s box of secrets: a tumultuous and often abusive upbringing, a growing fascination with gang life, and other discoveries that painted a maelstrom of motivations behind his violent behavior.
