A Netflix Limited Series

When teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) reports that she was sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the detectives investigating her case, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes, and partner to catch a serial rapist.

The series was inspired by real events, as documented in a Pulitzer Prize-winning article by ProPublica and The Marshall Project, entitled “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, and later developed into a book called A False Report: A True Story of Rape in America. The incredible story was also featured in the Peabody award-winning podcast, This American Life, in an episode called “Anatomy of Doubt.” With episodes directed by Oscar nominees Susannah Grant and Lisa Cholodenko, as well as Emmy winning director Michael Dinner, “Unbelievable” is a story of unspeakable trauma, unwavering tenacity, and astounding resilience.

Inspired by true events, “Unbelievable” follows the investigation of sexual assault cases and includes depictions of sexual violence. Viewer discretion is advised.
