New Netflix documentary series "The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann", about a missing girl whose case has sparked fevered speculation in Britain for more than a decade, is set to drop on the streaming platform Friday.

While it does not feature the McCanns, it includes archival news footage, reenactments, and interviews with over 40 people, including friends of the family as well as journalists and investigators. The value that Madeleine had was really high because if they took her it's because they were going to get a lot of money'.

It tells the story of the disappearance of 3-year-old McCann, who vanished from the seaside resort of Praia de Luz in Portugal, while on holiday with her family.

Gerry and Kate McCann have slammed the show - claiming it could "hinder" the police investigation into the missing person's case - and refused to be interviewed.

Maddie's disappearance attracted widespread media attention and prompted an investigation which has reportedly cost more than £11m, according to The Telegraph.

Kate and Gerry McCann had no involvement in the docmentary.

But, Netflix is still hopeful it'll follow in the huge success of other true crime dramas like Abducted In Plain Sight.

"And as we use that technology to revisit and review that which we captured in the past, there's every likelihood that something we already know will slip into position".

Despite numerous offers from the filmmakers, Kate and Gerry declined to take part in the documentary, with their former spokesperson insisting: "We want nothing to do with it". "Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the program".

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is directed by Chris Smith, who also directed Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened. "We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme".
