Channel 7 has released a first teaser for their upcoming miniseries “Blue Murder: Killer Cop”. “I kow more about criminals and how to catch them than any 10 other blokes in the country. Makes you wonder how I got here?” Richard Roxburgh, as crooked cop Roger Rogerson, asks this of the audience, in the first trailer released by Seven of its hotly-anticipated telemovie, Blue Murder: Killer Cop. It’s a bloody good question and has all the makings of the must watch true crime drama of the year — an unexpected but utterly compelling sequel to the original miniseries, which introduced the talents of Roxburgh to local audiences and will remind a new generation of the shocking past of one of Australia’s dodgiest detectives. Rogerson’s 2016 conviction on murder and commercial drug supply charges provided a stunning twist to this infamous crime tale, which finally brought down the former NSW detective after the 75-year-old and his accomplice, Glenn McNamara, 57, were found guilty of the murder of Jamie Gao during a drug deal gone wrong. After the duo’s arrest, producers of the first Blue Murder series immediately got to work on a sequel, which now looks to be fast-tracked to air by Channel 7 and co-stars Toni Collette, Love Child’s Andy Ryan and Hyde and Seek star, Matt Nable.
