Wright says: “Day and Blumhouse have brilliantly told this story of a town rattled by crime and caught in the throes of the satanic panic. This series uncompromisingly seeks justice for the vulnerable who fell victim to their dangerous surroundings, and closure to those that have gone for so many years without it.

Lisio added: “Fall River does more than chronicle the murders that beset this town, but gives a face and voice to the victims, women who, because they were sex workers, did not receive the care and attention warranted during the investigation into their deaths. Over the course of filming, we uncovered aspects of the investigation that were previously unknown, [including] new evidence that 41 years later bring us closer to the truth of what really happened to these women.”

Fall River will premiere on Epix on May 16th at 10 p.m.
