Since the story of Princess Diana has been covered so extensively, it takes a lot for people to get truly excited about another retelling of her life. Luckily, “Who Killed Lady Di?” is just different enough to get you excited. According to Variety, the dramatic mini-series, which is being dually produced by London-based Headline Pictures and French banner Itineraire Productions, is essentially a true crime update on everything that happened after Princess Diana’s death — and let’s just say that there was a lot.
The show will cover — in dramatic form — everything from the conspiracy theories that started to stir after Princess Diana’s death to the actual investigation itself. Oh, and it’s being written with the help of Martine Monteil, who actually led the criminal investigation division of the French police after the fateful accident(via Variety).
Monteil makes this mini-series even more of a standout. “Martine Monteil fought to uncover the truth, she was even nicknamed ‘Mlle Maigret,'” Pierre Laugier, co-founder of Itineraire Productions, tells Variety. The nickname alludes to how hard she investigated the case. This is an aspect that will truly give the show a twist and possibly tells fans more than ever before about what really happened the day that Princess Diana died.
