Named one of the Hollywood Reporter’s 35 under 35 agents or executives, Ryan Ly currently serves as a principal at Curate Entertainment. In his previous position at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Ryan Ly was responsible for signing literary talent for hit television series, such as Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Making a Murderer.
Making a Murderer is a Netflix original documentary series that follows the true story of Steven Avery, a man who is in prison for murder but who maintains his innocence. The second season, which debuted in October 2018, is focused on the work Avery’s defense attorney, Kathleen Zellner, has been doing since 2016 to clear her client’s name.
While Season Two ended with Avery still in prison and his request for a retrial denied by a judge, Zellner remains undeterred, saying they are at the start of Avery’s fight for freedom. The next step is appealing the most recent judgment against a new trial that could potentially overturn Avery’s conviction.
