Murder Incorporated

Americans have always had a pretty significant appetite for true crime shows. But, in the past, those shows have usually fallen into the category of guilty pleasures. Between The Jinx on HBO, Serial on NPR, and the Making of a Murderer on Netflix, the genre has gone decidedly high-brow. Is being convicted of murder the last sure-fire way to go viral?
