ABC has landed the interview that everyone has been waiting for.
Diane Sawyer has landed the first interview with Amanda Knox since she was released from Italian prison in 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Knox, an Italian exchange student, was held for four years in an Italian prison for the death of her roommate, Meredith Kercher.
It will air on April 30 to coincide with Knox’s book release about her time spent in an overseas jail for a crime she didn’t commit.
The book titled, Waiting to be Heard was announced in November, published by Harper Collins, and is set to release the same date as the interview will air, according to ABC News.
This is an interview that has been sought after from global markets but Sawyer will be the one to take it home.
The four year long ordeal that had Knox locked up occurred back in 2007 when Kercher was found stabbed to death in an Italian apartment she shared with Raffaele Sollecito and Knox.
Knox was later convicted of conspiring with Rudy Guede and was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
After much dispute, Knox was found innocent and released from jail in 2011.
