In recent years, “true crime” series, movies, podcasts and books have become popular, conquering an ever-larger audience. The genre encompasses productions that are based on or inspired by true crimes. Recent examples are “A Mulher da Casa Abandonada”, by Chico Felitti, and “Bom dia, Verônica”, a book by Ilana Casoy and Raphael Montes that won adaptation on Netflix.
A survey by Spotify reveals that the consumption of podcasts of this type grew by 52% in the comparison of the first half of 2021 with the same period this year. The largest audience that consumes this type of content is between 18 and 24 years old.
On this platform alone, there are more than 31,000 “true crime” podcasts worldwide. But at the same time that these works reach more and more people, specialists are evaluating whether they help to raise public awareness or if they accentuate the process of trivializing crimes.
To discuss the matter, the CNN Our World this Saturday (3) welcomes Ilana Casoy, writer, screenwriter and specialist in criminology who closely followed the work of experts who work in cases of homicides and serial murders.
The series adapted from her book, “Good morning, Veronica”, is in its second season and appeared on the platform’s list of the 10 most watched non-English-language series in the world.
To learn more, watch this Saturday’s program (3) on channel 577 and on YouTube CNN Brazil .
O CNN Our World is shown on Saturdays from 11:45 pm.
