The release of The Staircase, HBO’s new big-budget crime drama, has been marred by controversy. The series is based on a true story, about an American writer and sometime politician, Michael Peterson, who in 2003 was convicted of murdering his wife Kathleen before having the conviction reduced to manslaughter.
