On the eve of its release, Netflix has dropped the trailer for true-crime documentary series “The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.”

“If you made a dozen movies out of this, nobody would believe them,” one participant in the docuseries tells trailer viewers right off the bat.

“I’ve done thousands of cases, the Madeleine case, I’ve seen the worst things a human being can see — the worst,” an investigator adds.

Promising a deep dive into every piece of evidence and potential theory of what has been called the most famous missing child case in British history, the streaming series reexamines the events of the night of May 3, 2007, when 3-year-old McCann disappeared while on vacation with her family at Praia de Luz resort in Portugal.

The project emerges two years after it was greenlit in 2017, with the series order marking a decade since the case was opened. Directed by Chris Smith (“Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened”), the eight-episode series draws on 120 hours of interviews with over 40 contributors, including journalists, investigators and people close to the McCann family.

Even a former suspect talks in the trailer.

“The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann” includes archival news footage, reenactments and never-before-seen testimonies. Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, did not participate in the series.

The project is produced by UK company Pulse Films in associations with Paramount Television. Emma Cooper and Thomas Benski serve as executive producers.

“The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann” debuts Friday, March 15 on Netflix.
