WATCH: New Casey Anthony documentary slammed as ‘gross’ and unnecessary platform

Casey Anthony is set to break her silence for the first time in more than a decade since she was acquitted of murder in the unsolved death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

In the three-part documentary Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies, Anthony, now 36, will reflect on the 2011 Florida trial that gripped the nation.

The documentary, led by director Alexandra Dean, will feature behind-the-scenes footage and material from Anthony’s personal archive.

“Since her acquittal in 2011, public opinion of Casey Anthony has been largely shaped by the media convinced of her guilt,” Dean said in a statement to Variety. “What emerges over the course of multiple interviews recorded over six months is a startling psychological portrait of Casey Anthony and a complete narrative of what she says happened to her daughter weighed against multiple sources of potential evidence. I believe the result will surprise many and cause the American public to look at this story in a new light.”

While Dean noted that the production team maintained “complete editorial control,” it is being slammed for giving Anthony a platform.

“Why give her a platform to lie? We all know she is guilty,” a Twitter user wrote. “This is just giving her attention. It’s gross.”

Some have taken to social media to threaten that they’ll cancel their Peacock subscriptions.

“If this airs, I will quite literally cancel my Peacock subscription and NEVER renew it for as long as I live,” another tweeted. “I know I’m one single person, but this is gross and I won’t support it.”

Another agreed: “I’m right there with you.”


The docuseries comes via Blue Ant Studios and will debut on Peacock on Nov. 29.
