2. Is there a trailer?
Yup. And it gives a pretty accurate summary of the case without giving too much away. The short clip starts off with Hamburg calling his father (who happened to be a POI but who was ruled out after his DNA wasn’t a match) asking him to participate in the interview. His response? “I'm not sure I could talk about things...Obviously, there's more to the story than any of us really know.”
3. Will there be a season two?
Most likely not, considering the documentary is a limited series and was created as a college project. However, that doesn’t mean that Hamburg won’t follow up on the story or go on to make more documentaries on other topics.
4. Anything else we need to know?
Aside from it being a murder mystery, perhaps the biggest story of Murder on Middle Beach is the one of a young man trying to seek justice for his mother. “It was tough because we were selling a different take on true crime," Madison recently told the ShoreLine Times from his home in New York. "It wasn't a story about a murder, it's a story about identity and about my mom and that's a really hard sell. Thank God that HBO saw the potential and the rest is history."
In fact, that’s the part that PureWow Project Manager, Emily Vandelanotte, liked the most about the series. She said, “While I’m a huge true crime fan, the show is just so well done. The fact that this guy is doing this as a college project about his own mother's murder (must be traumatizing) and it got picked up by HBO is truly amazing. Not to mention, there are so many twists and turns it's almost hard to believe the story is real at times. I am from Connecticut near this town so it kind of feels even more real to me.”
Looks like we officially have weekend plans.
