‘American Murder: The Family Next Door’ Trailer: A New Netflix True Crime Story

Published

on

In 2018, a mother and her two daughters went missing in Colorado. Did the mother take her children and flee? Or was something more sinister at play? Tragically, the answer probably won’t surprise you – but that doesn’t make the story any less shocking. The case is covered in a new Netflix documentary, American Murder: The Family Next Door.

American Murder The Family Next Door Trailer

The tragic story of the disappearance of Shanann Watts and her two children has been covered by media before – it was the basis for an episode of 2o/20, as well as a special on ID and a Lifetime movie. And now it’s getting the Netflix treatment with American Murder: The Family Next DoorThis trailer seems to be trying to not give away the “truth,” although it’s readily available information since this is a true story. Here’s the synopsis:

In 2018, 34-year-old Shanann Watts and her two young daughters went missing in Frederick, Colorado. As heartbreaking details emerged, their story made headlines worldwide. Told entirely through archival footage that includes social media posts, law enforcement recordings, text messages and never-before-seen home videos, director Jenny Popplewell pieces together an immersive and truthful examination of a police investigation and a disintegrating marriage. AMERICAN MURDER: THE FAMILY NEXT DOOR is the first film to give a voice to the victims.

Shanann Watts was a social media blogger, and as a result, there’s lots and lots of video footage of her and her family life – all of which ended up coming into play in the case. The documentary comes from director Jenny Popplewell, and I will definitely give Lopplewell and Netflix points for making this a movie rather than a multi-part series. It seems that anytime someone is telling a true crime story these days they feel obliged to stretch things out over multiple parts, with so-so results. Nine times out of ten, when I watch a true crime docuseries my first thought ends up being: “This would’ve been better as a one-part documentary instead.”

American Murder: The Family Next Door arrives on Netflix on September 30.

Zendaya came, she saw and she conquered. 

The Euphoria actress took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series during tonight’s 2020 Emmys. 

This marks her very first Emmy win and nomination. She makes history as the youngest actress to ever win the award, as well as the second Black actress after Viola Davis in 2015.

The A-lister went up against some stiff competition, as her fellow nominees included Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Olivia Colman (The Crown), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Laura Linney (Ozark) and Sandra Oh (Killing Eve). 

Much like the evening’s previously announced Emmy winners, Zendaya accepted the coveted honor from home.

“I’m really, really nervous,” she said, adding, “I just want to say thank you to the TV Academy and all the other women. This is crazy. Thank you HBO and A24 for your support. Thank you to my family and my team. To the incredible cast and crew of Euphoria. I’m so lucky and I’m inspired by everything you do.”

Cardi B’s 2-Year-Old Daughter Breaks The Internet With RIDICULOUSLY CUTE New Instagram Account!

Published

By

Welcome to the ‘gram, Kulture Kiari!

The 2-year-old daughter of Cardi B and Offset has officially joined social media with a new Instagram account. Yes, we said she’s 2 years old. The account was only made a couple days ago, but it’s already verified with more than 700,000 followers. Not bad for a girl who can’t even read yet! LOLz!

It’s no wonder gurl has such a head start with Cardi in her corner. The WAP rapper promoted her toddler’s new IG on Saturday, encouraging fans to follow and promising “soo much cool and bute [sic] baby stuff coming up.” Kulture’s bio reads:

“Hey buddies Kulture official page I like everything pink Spoiled

The account already has a handful of pictures and videos, including a mini photoshoot with a Louis Vuitton bag gifted from Megan Thee Stallion. There’s also some serious flexing happening on Kulture’s behalf, with a recent video showing off her collection of “ice.” (So, not only does the kid own a Birkin bag, her jewelry collection is probably worth more than most of us have in our bank accounts… cool!)

Fans noted that Momma Cardi seems to be having a lot of fun managing her only child’s Instagram. The captions highlight the rapper’s signature sense of humor:

“Me & my mommy …..My mom was annoying me but it’s ok cause I look cute.”

“My mom telling me NO but that means YES in my language”

“Throwback of my grandma giving me mash potatoes while my entourage records.I didn’t like mash potatoes before now they ok.I prefer rice I love rice

But just because Cardi’s running the show doesn’t mean Kulture isn’t keeping her eye on things. One video shows the toddler giving her own post a double-tap, or as Cardi wrote:

“On my Instagram making sure my mommy don’t post nothing embarrassing on my page.”

Ha!

Running the adorable new account is probably a welcome distraction for the Grammy winner. (It beats passing the time with disgusting food combinations, anyway.) Not only do we ALL need new hobbies as coronavirus quarantine wears on, but Cardi is also dealing with the fallout of her split from Kulture’s dad. Luckily, the divorce seems to be proceeding as amicably as possible — it’s so chill, she hasn’t even shed a tear. During a Friday IG live, the Hustlers star confirmed:

“It’s nothing crazy, out of this world happened. Sometimes people really do f**king grow apart. I’ve been with this man for four years, I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man. Sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments, of the build ups. You get tired sometimes.”

With that in mind, we’d say showering your baby with attention is a fairly healthy way of dealing with a breakup, even if it is via a social media account she can’t use on her own yet.

We can’t wait to see more Kulture Kontent on our feeds!!!
