Netflix released the official trailer yesterday for their upcoming original murder documentary series, KILLER INSIDE: THE MIND OF AARON HERNANDEZ. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
As a gifted young football athlete from Bristol, Connecticut, Aaron Hernandez had capitalized rapidly on his promise, playing for a top tier college program before being drafted into the National Football League at the age of 20. But in 2013, fresh off of a newly inked five-year, $40 million contract with the New England Patriots, Hernandez would become a household name for the most infamous murder case involving an American athlete since OJ Simpson. Hernandez’s trials for the brutal killing of Odin Lloyd and two Boston-area men yielded a Pandora’s box of secrets: a tumultuous and often abusive upbringing, a growing fascination with gang life, and other discoveries that painted a maelstrom of motivations behind his violent behavior.
A three-part documentary series featuring exclusive courtroom footage, Hernandez’s phone calls from prison, and interviews with those who knew Hernandez and Lloyd, KILLER INSIDE: THE MIND OF AARON HERNANDEZ meticulously examines the perfect storm of factors leading to the trial, conviction, and death of an athlete who seemingly had it all.
The original documentary series is directed by Geno McDermott (“The Murder Tapes”, “I Am Homicide”). It is produced by Terry Leonard (Before I Disappear, The Forgotten Kingdom).
The series is executive produced by Angus Wall (Travis Scott: Look Mom I Can Fly, Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom), Christina Douglas (“A Haunting”, “Primal Instinct”), Dan Wetzel (Life of a King,), Kevin Armstrong (Gorno: An American Tragedy, 55 and Older), Shawn De Clair (“American Ninja Warrior”, “Bullit: The Documentary”), Jon Wertheim, and McDermott.
KILLER INSIDE: THE MIND OF AARON HERNANDEZ will be released on Netflix on January 15, 2020. Are you ready to look inside the mind of a killer?
