It took three years to develop 'Interrogation'--an exciting multi-linear interactive viewing experience supported by CBC All Access and based on a true crime case. The audience is encouraged to help solve the case of a woman who was brutally murdered in her own home. The progression of the storyline is evidence-based. That is, audience members need to find the evidence in episodes.
Each episode of 'Interrogation' is named after a major player in the investigation or a family member. The key individual offers their perspective about what took place, which is "always subjective if not downright biased." Audience members, who are essentially the detectives, can view episodes in any order to derive the information that they need to 'solve' the case. The fictionalized non-linear true-crime drama also makes for a captivating interactive viewing experience as the narrative is inspired by real-life events.
At the end of the season finale, CBC All Access includes "end cards that explain what happened to many of the characters beyond where the 10 episodes took them."
