Customer Question

I want to make a documentary that follows up to the documentary Making A Murderer (https://www.netflix.com/title/80000770) ? Is that possible without me getting sued?

No they would first send you a cease and desist letter and if you did not respind they would likely sue for infringing on their intellectual property.

What if i made my own sequel to the documentary and called it The Steve Avery Case Exposed?

You would still likely get sued by the producers. They usually pay for those rights. Now you may ultimately win a lawsuit but your legal cost of defense might outweigh the financial benefit of making the documentary.
