Netflix has JUST dropped the trailer for its Madeleine McCann documentary

The synopsis of the documentary is chilling in itself, as it reads: "A couple's grief over their daughter's disappearance is compounded by a frenzied media and a detective's mistaken belief that they played a part". In addition to looking in to the facts of Madeleine's disappearance, the show also examines the way the case was treated in the media.

A Netflix documentary about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann will feature interviews with Jim Gamble QPM, from Bangor, Co Down, one of the UK's most experienced and outspoken experts on the safeguarding of children online.

"The police have suspicions that there was some collusion happening on the night that Maddie went missing", says another partaker in the film.

A spokesman for the McCann family confirmed that "Kate and Gerry and their wider family and friends were approached some months ago to participate in the documentary", but "chose not to engage".

"We did not see and still do not see how this program will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, could potentially hinder it", the McCanns said in statement. "Madeleine's Fund", which Kate and Gerry set up to raise money for the investigation, has been supported by a number of celebrities including Philip Green, Simon Cowell, Coleen Rooney, J.K. Rowling, and Richard Branson.

Netflix and Pulse have been tight-lipped over potential revelations in the series, but provided Variety with a list of interviewees.

The McCanns were dining at a hotel in Portugal when Madeleine went missing from their hotel room where she and two older siblings were sleeping.

In the trailer, key figures involved in the case speak of their investigation. But it does tease possible updates in her disappearance and story.

Since her disappearance, interest has been non-stop: Most recently, a top official said he believes someone is protecting the youngster's kidnappers. The entire eight-episode show will be available to watch March 15.

Netflix's docu-series was commissioned in 2017.

And it's not just the trailer that has been released, the air date has also been announced - and it's tomorrow, March 15.
