kathleen zelner. >> every crime makes sense. you have to understand the victim, the nature of the crime, and you must understand an intimate detail the crime scene. i don't think any of that was done in this case. i mean you really -- >> first on cbs this morning, laura richardi and moira demos. why would you think there is a part two to this case? >> even though they're serving life in prison, bren ddan will eligible for parole when it is 59. they're still claiming innocent and trying to clear their names. >> were you planning to do a part two? >> no, it is definitely something that evolved.
8:46 am
>> why did you think you needed to keep going? >> when we leave off at the end of part one, steven says he will keep fighting, brendan's team took his case into the federal court system, and soon after the launch of part one, steven got a new advocate who -- >> has an incredible record by the way. >> yes, she is the winningest private post conviction attorney in the united states. so the story was not over. once we learned that and thought about this faze of the process, which is a black hole to most people, what exactly does that mean to appeal? what are the obstacleobstacles,e the stakes, we saw it as an opportunity to offer viewers something new. >> and part one was popular but there was controversy and critici
8:47 am
criticism, saying you didn't get enough information and time with the prosecutor. will we see more of that in part two. >> we gave him whatever air time was available to us. we looked for creative ways to include the point of view of the prosecutor who declined to sit down with us. i wrote to him in 2006, invited him to participate, never received a direct response to my letter. but you know we were fortunate in thae so mat so many events p out publicly and we could film them and make it clear what his perspective was on the story. >> when you think about it, do you think about it as a documentary where you try to put things before people with no fingerprints of your own on it or is it a story telling exercise in which you're advocating for an argument? >> i think the answer might be neither. you know documentary is not journalism. it subpoena an art form. this is a narrative. we chose steven avery as our
8:48 am
main character and we chose him because of his incredibly unique status as someone that had been failed by the system in the mid 80s. and now he was stepping back into it. in that 20 year time span, there has been advances in dna, legislative reforms, and there was a lot of talk about wrongful convictions -- >> because he had been wrongly accused before? >> yes, and falsely convicted and imprisoned for 18 years. so it was like a mirror to watch the process playout. how will he be treated. >> one of the other criticisms was about the victim. we don't hear more about teresa halbach who lost her life in mysterious circumstances, is she addressed at all in part two? >> yes, absolutely. >> do we hear from her family? >> in part one and two we invited the family to
8:49 am
participate and in both instances they declined. we absolutely understand that. i would imagine that participating could create more pain for them. we understand they declined. we respect that, in light of that regardless of whether or not they participated or not, our job was to tell the story in the most responsible way we could. when the halbach declined to participate, we used archived materials. >> you had a lot of people talking about part one, and i'm sure lots of people will be watching and talking after part two. >> catch all ten episodes of "making a murder: part
