Fans of Making a Murderer and The Jinx are already addicted. Essential viewing.

In the most recent months, we've consistently brought you the very first news regarding any new true crime documentaries that are being released.

We genuinely hope you enjoyed our recommendations of Oklahoma City, Icarus , The Keepers, Casting JonBenet, The Seven Five and The Fear of 13 and countless others, but with Wormwood, Long Shot and Strong Island to come, there's plenty more true crime documentaries for viewers to watch.

If you're looking for something to tide you over before those titles are released, we thoroughly recommend Kelly Loudenberg's new series that focuses on the failures of the American criminal justice system.

In 'The Confession Tapes,' we get a first-hand view at just how flawed the process of gathering forensic evidence can be.

This true crime documentary series investigates cases where people convicted of murder claim that their confessions were coerced, involuntary or false.

Over the course of the series, the audience gets to see a collection of true-life court case confessions that were made by supposedly guilty people.

Much like that infamous interrogation of Brendan Dassey in Making A Murderer, the most infuriating aspect of The Confession Tapes surrounds the techniques and coercive tactics that members of the police are using during the interrogation process.

Granted, not every case in the series is open-and-shut, but aren't we all led to believe that in the eyes of the law, a person is innocent until proven guilty?

This documentary series will shatter any belief that you have in that idea.

The documentary mainly uses archival footage and interviews to tell these stories but The Confession Tapes is primarily focused on answering one of the most complex questions regarding any murder case and subsequent interrogation, why would an innocent person confess to a crime they didn’t commit?

Much like Making A Murderer and The Jinx, the search for an answer is bound to leave you absolutely infuriated and searching for justice.

If you really felt for Brendan Dassey during that infamous interrogation, this new series is definitely for you.

Plenty of people are already hooked.
