Uncover the truth about his lies...
...Ahead of its premiere at SXSW today, STARZ has released a trailer and poster for Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger's series "Confronting a Serial Killer", which explores the secrets behind serial killer Samuel Little.
In "Confronting a Serial Killer":
"The five-episode series tells the timely story of the unprecedented relationship between acclaimed New York Times best-selling author and memoirist Jillian Lauren (‘Some Girls: My Life in a Harem’) and the most prolific serial killer in American history, Samuel Little, and her race against time to identify his victims before it’s too late (Little recently died in prison at the age of 80, after having avoided justice for his crimes for decades). Lauren uncovers Little’s darkest secrets and aids law enforcement in solving a multitude of cold case murders while struggling to reconcile her own history of addiction and abuse with her present-day mission to return the identities of previously nameless bodies and forgotten women. As she slips deeper into his sordid world, Jillian realizes that she may become, psychologically, Little’s last victim.
Through the perspectives of Lauren, as well as several female members of law enforcement, multiple investigators, survivors and victims’ family members, “Confronting a Serial Killer” shines a light on systemic issues within the criminal justice system including bias against marginalized communities, particularly women of color, and those struggling with addiction, mental illness, and trauma."
“Confronting a Series Killer” is executive produced and directed by Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (The Paradise Lost Trilogy, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes”) with Po Kutchins (“The Murder of Laci Peterson,” “Prison Town, USA,” “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth”) serving as showrunner and executive producer. Jon Doran and Jon Kamen also serve as executive producers.
“Confronting a Serial Killer” is set to premiere on Sunday, April 18th on STARZ across all platforms, as well as on STARZ at 9PM ET/PT.
