JonBenet Ramsey video series coming from 'Yellowstone' Studios

MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, renowned for their work on productions like Yellowstone and its spinoffs, are embarking on a new venture: the development of a limited series centered on one of the most perplexing and widely discussed cold cases in recent memory — the tragic killing of JonBenét Ramsey.

In December 1996, the lifeless body of JonBenét Ramsey, a 6-year-old beauty pageant participant from Boulder, Colorado, was discovered in her family's home. The case immediately captivated the nation's attention, unleashing a tidal wave of media frenzy and intense scrutiny.

The backstory

JonBenét's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, found themselves under the microscope of suspicion, though no charges were ever brought against them by Boulder police.

Fast forward to 2006, when Alexis Val Reich, previously known as John Mark Karr, surfaced in Thailand, claiming responsibility for JonBenét's death.

His confession, however, was swiftly discredited as lacking substantial evidence. Another figure, Gary Olivia, a convicted sex offender, has also made repeated confessions to accidentally causing JonBenét's demise, yet no charges have been laid against him either.

The series

Now, almost three decades later, MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios are preparing to revisit this haunting chapter of American history.

Spearheaded by writers Harrison Query and Tommy Wallach, the project has yet to find a home on a specific network or streaming platform. However, with their track record and the compelling nature of the subject matter, it's likely to attract significant interest.

Leading the creative charge is acclaimed filmmaker Richard LaGravenese, known for his work on projects like Behind the Candelabra and Unbroken.

As both showrunner and executive producer, LaGravenese brings his wealth of experience and storytelling prowess to breathe life into the series.

The future plans

The show aims to delve deep into the intricate web of events surrounding JonBenét's untimely demise, promising to explore the unanswered questions and the enduring mystery that has lingered for years.

The series, still untitled, promises to shed new light on the case that continues to haunt the collective consciousness of a nation.

Through meticulous research, nuanced storytelling, and a commitment to authenticity, the team behind the project endeavors to provide viewers with a comprehensive understanding of the circumstances surrounding JonBenét Ramsey's tragic death.

As the project moves forward, it holds the potential to not only entertain but also to provoke thought and reflection on broader issues surrounding justice, media sensationalism, and the enduring impact of unsolved mysteries on both individual lives and society as a whole.
