Premise of the series:
It is a detective story told in McNamara’s own words, through exclusive original recordings and excerpts from her book read by actor Amy Ryan. The series draws from extensive archival footage and police files as well as exclusive new interviews with detectives, survivors, and family members of the killer to weave together a picture of a complex and flawed investigation. It is a frightening document of an era when victims were often too ashamed to speak out and sexual crime was minimized in the press and the courtroom. Echoing McNamara’s writing, the series gives voice to the victims, and their experiences speak to the far-reaching, human cost of the decades-old case.
The series is directed by Liz Garbus, Elizabeth Wolff, Myles Kane and Josh Koury; producers, Elizabeth Wolff and Kate Barry; co-producers, Myles Kane and Josh Koury; executive producers, Liz Garbus, Dan Cogan, Michelle McNamara, Patton Oswalt and Dave Rath; co-executive producers, Paul Haynes and Billy Jensen.
