Sophie: A Murder in West Cork will stream on Netflix from June 30. The three-part series was made with the blessing of the du Plantier family.

Executive producer Simon Chinn, also behind acclaimed documentaries Searching for Sugarman and Man on Wire, said: “The project became something that we really wanted to get involved in when we met Sophie's family and gained their trust."

The series was filmed in West Cork and in France and features contributors including du Plantier’s son Pierre-Louis Baudey.

It also includes interviews from residents from Schull, the town in West Cork where du Plantier was killed, as well as Ian Bailey, a journalist from Manchester, who was found guilty by a French court of Du Plantier's murder.

Bailey has always denied any role in Du Plantier's death, and was never charged in Ireland in relation to the killing.
