Cashing In On True Crime: Amanda Knox Lands New Gig As Podcast Host

Amanda Knox has gone from prisoner to a true crime podcast host, has learned.

The 31-year-old Seattle resident — who was acquitted of killing study abroad roommate Meredith Kercher in 2015 after four years in Italian prison — will host SundanceTV and Sundance Now show The Truth About True Crime with Amanda Knox, which launches on October 25.

The first episode will explore the Jonestown massacre, when hundreds of people committed suicide under the orders of cult leader Jim Jones in 1978.

"After surviving my own true crime saga, I tend not to be a fan of the genre, because it so often veers into sensationalism at the expense of the human beings involved and the truth," said Knox in a statement. "But these stories are very important when told with compassion and context. I'm excited to partner with Sundance to bring nuance to the story of Jonestown."

Knox is also the host of The Scarlett Letter Reports, where she interviews women who have been "sexualized" and "scrutinized," including Mischa Barton and Brett Rossi.
