Premium network EPIX® has unveiled the official trailer for the true-crime docuseries FALL RIVER from Blumhouse Television (“The Jinx”, “A Wilderness of Error”) and Pyramid Productions. The series will debut on May 16 at 10 pm.
In 1979 – almost 90 years after infamous, accused murderer Lizzie Borden’s notorious acquittal – Fall River, Massachusetts would become home to another terrifying series of crimes. When three young women were killed in a streak of brutal murders, police alleged a satanic cult was practicing human sacrifice. The cult leader, a man named Carl Drew, was captured and sent to prison for life without parole.
Twenty years after the trial, the lead investigator Paul Carey became so haunted by inconsistencies in the stories that he re-investigated his own case after he retired. Evidence surfaced that brought the entire story into question. Now through exclusive interviews, including intimate conversations with Drew, new witnesses, and illuminating evidence, this documentary series will tell the true story of a town caught in the grips of the paranoia and fear around the 1980s Satanic Panic, and will shed light on murders that were thought to have been solved.
FALL RIVER is executive produced by Jason Blum and directed/executive produced by James Buddy Day (The Lover’s Lane Murders, Manson: The Women, The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell). Jeremy Gold, Mary Lisio, Michael Wright, Jill Burkhart also serve as executive producers. The series will be internationally distributed by MGM.
