Netflix continues to make waves in television. Not only did Netflix receive the most Golden Globe nominations, (they even beat out HBO) but the streaming service released your new TV obsessionMaking A Murderer– and you don't even need to have a Netflix account. 

On Friday, Netflix released a ten-part documentary series on YouTube. So now you can Netflix, YouTube and chill. Although, for this type of thriller, you may just want to cuddle. The documentary centers around StevenAvery, an outsider, who is convicted and later exonerated of a brutal crime.

The synopsis on Netflix's YouTube video states, "[Avery's] release triggered major criminal justice reform legislation, and he filed a lawsuit that threatened to expose corruption in local law enforcement and award him millions of dollars. But in the midst of his very public civic case, he suddenly finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime."

With the success of HBO's The Jinx and the Serial podcast, Netflix is jumping in "real" life crime stories. The ten-part documentary series pilot released on Dec. 18 and is available on YouTube. The show will, of course, also be available on Netflix.
