Blumhouse Docuseries To Investigate Satanic Panic in Lizzie Borden’s Hometown
Epix recently unveiled its scripted and unscripted development slate for 2020 and beyond. And one of the most exciting projects comes to us from Blumhouse Television and executive producer/director James Buddy Day. It’s a docuseries called Fall River.
Here’s the synopsis via Deadline:
“1979 – Fall River, MA – home to the notorious Lizzie Borden, three young women were killed in a series 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 became so haunted by inconsistencies in the stories that he re-investigated his own case after he retired. Evidence surfaced bringing the entire story into question. This documentary series will tell the shocking true story of a town caught in the grips of the Satanic Panic, with new witnesses and evidence that shed light on murders that were thought to have been solved.”
James Buddy Day (The Lover’s Lane Murders, Manson: The Women, The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell) serves as executive producer and director of the series which is produced by Blumhouse Television and Pyramid Productions.
