Epix has ordered a six-part Charles Manson docuseries fittingly if unimaginatively dubbed Helter Skelter from An Inconvenient Truth producer Lesley Chilcott.

It’s said to be a comprehensive telling of the story of how Manson and his cult terrorized California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It will chronicle the Manson Family history, featuring never-before-accessed interviews from former family members and journalists first on the scene and in the courtroom, with archival footage and newly-unearthed images.

It premieres on June 14th.

Lesley Chilcott tells Deadline: “Helter Skelter set outs to illuminate new perspectives on one of the most legendary crimes of our time. The filmmaking team and I are grateful for the collaborations with Berlanti Productions, Rogue Atlas, Warner Horizon and Epix and the opportunity to tell this complete story.”

Michael Wright, President, Epix added: “Working with the brilliant Lesley Chilcott and the talented teams at Berlanti Productions, Rogue Atlas and Warner Horizon Unscripted has been a fantastic journey. Helter Skelter’s bone-chilling narrative is rooted in one of the most infamous and fascinating crimes of the past several decades, and we’re thrilled that this story is being so expertly told on Epix.”

Brooke Karzen, the Executive Vice President and Head of Warner Horizon Unscripted Television said: “Helter Skelter is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about a small-time con artist who spearheaded one of the most unspeakable murder tragedies in history. It explores the age-old question: are killers born or are they made?
