Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming Limited Series Unbelievable.
The series sees Toni Collette and Merritt Wever investigating unsolved cases and toppling the patriarchal police force.
Hundreds of miles away in a different state, Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever), a teenage girl, filed a police report that claimed she was sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home. The police kept trying to poke holes in her story and ultimately determined she wasn’t credible and that there was no victim in this case.
Meanwhile, Grace and Karen discover two new rapes on their own turf with the same M.O. as Marie’s alleged attacker. Thus begins the search for a potential serial rapist.
The series is based on the true story featured in T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong’s Pulitzer Prize-winning article from ProPublica and The Marshall Project titled “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” as well as the radio episode of This American Life tackling this same subject, “Anatomy of Doubt.”
The limited series is set to stream on Netflix on Friday 13th September 2019.
