If I Can't Have You: The Jodi Arias Story

TX Time: 21h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary

If I Can't Have You: The Jodi Arias Story

Jodi Arias is a household name in America, synonymous with one of the most heavily covered murder cases of all time.

When she was put on trial for the murder of Travis Alexander, Arias was villainized on television screens across the USA.

From photos at the scene to Arias' inconsistent story, all signs pointed to her guilt, until now.

If I Can't Have You: The Jodi Arias Story grants access to Arias' personal diaries, unseen police interviews and exclusive testimony, and interviews with the defence, prosecution, and friends and family of those connected to the case.

The documentary crisscrosses through time, taking you from scenes of the trial to Arias' journal, to the first steps taken inside the crime scene after the murder occurred.

Interwoven with interviews with Arias' defence attorney, friends of Travis Alexander and family members of Arias, this special gives an intimate view of the tumultuous relationship that Arias and Alexander continued behind closed doors.

This two-hour special asks: is Jodi Arias a sociopathic murderer, or is she a misunderstood woman who acted in self-defence?

With incredible access to her personal diaries, you will see Arias in a way you never have before, either proving what you've known all along, or inciting new questions in the love-gone-wrong case that rocked the nation.
