When does "Confronting a Serial Killer" start on Starz? Will Confronting a Serial Killer be a successful show? Who is in the cast? Where to watch trailer & more. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the new Starz series.
What Is Confronting a Serial Killer About?
Starz announced today that the original docuseries “Confronting a Serial Killer” from Oscar(R)-nominated and Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger is set to premiere on Sunday, April 18 on STARZ across all platforms, as well as on STARZ at 9PM ET/PT. Additionally, the network unveiled the official trailer as well as the original key art for the five-episode series. Set to make its world premiere at the annual SXSW Film Festival today, “Confronting a Serial Killer” will also air day and date on the Starzplay international streaming service across Europe, Latin America and Japan.
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.
Executive produced and directed by Oscar(R)-nominated and Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger with Po Kutchins serving as showrunner and executive producer. Jon Doran and Jon Kamen also serve as executive producers.
Produced by Lionsgate Television, Third Eye Motion Picture Company and RadicalMedia, Senior Vice President, Head of Unscripted Programming Alice Dickens-Koblin is the executive overseeing “Confronting a Serial Killer” on behalf of Starz and Lionsgate.
The last episode of the series was released on May 16, 2021 in the US.
