Amanda Knox to tell-all on TV
Amanda Knox will finally break her silence in her first TV interview since she was acquitted of the murder of her roommate.
The US student who spent four years in prison in Italy charged with the murder of Meredith Kercher will sit down with iconic journalist Diane Sawyer in a TV special which will be broadcast on US network ABC on April 30.
"Now, after the dramatic Italian trial, conviction, and the court appeal that finally acquitted and freed her she will speak to ABC News," a statement from the US network read.
Knox's book, Waiting to Be Heard, will be published by HarperCollins the day the interview goes to air.
It is believed the publishing house paid Knox nearly $4 million for rights to the book.
Knox and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were arrested in November 2007 and charged with the murder of Kercher, who was found dead in the Italian apartment she shared with Knox.
In 2009, they were convicted of sexual assault, murder and simulating a burglary and sentenced to 25 years in prison, but were acquitted of all charges in October 2011.
Knox returned to her home town of Seattle, Washington, after her acquittal and still lives there today.
