scandal 15/03/2019

The world's most famous missing child case is now heading to Netflix.

Last month, it was announced Netflix was making a documentary around the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007.

The eight-part documentary series will feature key interviews with investigators, friends, journalists and more from over the past 11 years.

As well as finally getting our first look at what will be one of the biggest doco's of the year, Netflix also announced this morning that it debut on the site March 16th for us here in NZ.

However, one couple you won't see talking about the doco is Madeleine's parents.

In a statement last week, Kate and Gerry McCann announced they will have nothing to the documentary.

"We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance.

The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate."

The couple continued that this will be the last statement they make regarding the Netflix Original.

"We did not see – and still do not see – how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, it could potentially hinder it.

Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme. We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme."
