Hernandez was a rising star in New England before he was arrested and convicted in the 2013 murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. He was also charged in a South End double murder but was acquitted in 2017.
Days after the acquittal, the 27-year-old killed himself in his prison cell.
“My whole body’s shaking right now. . . you know my temper,” Hernandez says in a prison call played in the trailer.MORE NEWS: Seekonk Middle Schoolers Wrote Anti-Semitic, Racist Messages In Students' Yearbooks
