The docuseries, which is titled John Lennon: Murder Without a Trial, will look into the investigation that took place following Lennon's murder as well as the conviction of Chapman, who stalked Lennon before shooting him.
Promising some new takes, the documentary will feature previously unseen crime scene photographs as well as some eyewitness interviews. John Lennon: Murder Without a Trial will also include interviews with detectives and prosecutors along with Chapman’s defence lawyers, psychiatrists, and those who knew Lennon.

Directed by Nick Holt and Rob Coldstream and produced by 72 Films for Apple TV+, the series sees David Glover, Simon Bunney, Mark Raphael and Louis Lee Ray all take on executive producing duties.
When Lennon was shot and killed, he was returning with his wife Yoko Ono to their apartment in the Dakota building which overlooks New York’s Central Park. 43 years after confessing to the murder Chapman remains in New York State prison where he is repeatedly denied parole.
