Margaret Ratliff and her sister Marth were adopted by Peterson after their mother Elizabeth Ratliff, a friend of the Petersons, died in Germany, after she was also found at the bottom of a staircase. Margaret Ratliff is convinced of her father’s innocence.

The staircase is written and produced by Campos and Cohn, and Campos will direct six of the show’s eight episodes, which is produced by Annapurna Television and HBO Max.

The staircase began as a documentary by director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. It told the story of Michael Peterson, a detective novelist accused of killing his wife Kathleen after she was found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their home, and the 16-year court battle that followed. De Lestrade gained unusual access to the case immediately after Kathleen’s death in 2001 in Durham, North Carolina. Her husband, Michael, a local public figure and bestselling novelist, quickly became the prime suspect and was convicted.

Turner is represented by CAA and Independent Talent Group.
