‘The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez’ Trailer: Netflix True Crime Docu-Series Puts the Whole System On Trial
Posted on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista
The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez is a new six-part true crime series from Netflix, and it looks like a particularly tough watch. Indeed, the opening moments of the newly released trailer feature a court bailiff warning people in a courtroom that the case they’re about to hear is “very emotional” and that it might end up overwhelming them. In 2013, an 8-year-old boy died after long-standing abuse from his mother and her boyfriend. The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez examines not so much the murder as it does the system that knew about the abuse, but failed to help.
