Yesterday Netflix unveiled the official trailer for the upcoming documentary series, CRIME SCENE: THE VANISHING AT THE CECIL HOTEL. Make sure you check it out below and let us know what you think!
From director Joe Berlinger (Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, Paradise Lost), CRIME SCENE: THE VANISHING AT THE CECIL HOTEL is the first season in a new documentary series that deconstructs the mythology and mystery surrounding infamous locations in contemporary crime. For nearly a century the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles has been linked to some of the city’s most notorious activity, from untimely deaths to housing serial killers.
In 2013 college student Elisa Lam was staying at the Cecil when she vanished, igniting a media frenzy and mobilizing a global community of internet sleuths eager to solve the case. Lam’s disappearance, the latest chapter in the hotel’s complex history, offers a chilling and captivating lens into one of LA’s most nefarious settings.
The series is directed by Joe Berlinger. Berlinger, Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, American Gangster), Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code, Solo: A Star Wars Story), Sara Bernstein (Rebuilding Paradise, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God), Justin Wilkes (What Happened, Miss Simone?, Under African Skies), Jon Doran (“Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich”, “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders”), Jon Kamen (The Fog of War, Paris to Pittsburgh), and Ryan Miller (“Fine Young Criminals”, “Death Row Stories”) serve as executive producers on the series.
CRIME SCENE: THE VANISHING AT THE CECIL HOTEL, the four-episode documentary series, will debut exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, February 10, 2021.
