Making a Murderer lawyer Jerry Buting got a book deal. Now, his cohort Dean Strang has been given a TV show.

The Wisconsin-based attorney and professor will be the star of a new docuseries Dean Strang: Road to Justice from Covert Media. Season 1 will include eight one-hour episodes and will see Strang digging into big-time legal cases and pointing out flaws in America’s criminal justice system along the way.

“Through his captivating work as Steven Avery’s defense attorney that we encountered in Making a Murderer, Dean Strang has become a leading voice in the fight for justice,” Covert’s head of unscripted television Saul Goldberg said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be working with Dean on this landmark series that will shine a light on many other extraordinary cases where the criminal justice system has failed.”

Strang and Buting were featured in Netflix’s true crime series Making a Murderer, which followed the legal trials and tribulations of Steven Avery. Avery was convicted for sexual assault in 1985, and was released in 2003 after DNA evidence exonerated him. He was later convicted for first-degree murder in 2007 and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Before the show debuts, Strang and Buting will embark on a North American speaking tour with 26 cities on the docket.
