RELATED: Samuel Little: Most Prolific Serial Killer in US History Is Now Dead

The series tells the timely story of the relationship between acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Jillian Lauren and the most prolific serial killer in American history, Samuel Little. Lauren must race against time to identify his victims before it’s too late. Little died in prison at the age of 80, having avoided justice for his crimes for decades. Lauren uncovers Little’s darkest secrets and also aids law enforcement in solving a multitude of cold case murders. All while struggling to reconcile her own history of addiction and abuse with her present-day mission to return the identities of nameless bodies and forgotten women.

As she slips deeper into his sordid world, Jillian realizes that she may become, psychologically, Little’s last victim. Through the perspectives of Lauren, as well as several female members of law enforcement, multiple investigators, survivors and victims’ family members, this shines a light on systemic issues within the criminal justice system including bias against marginalized communities, particularly women of color, and those struggling with addiction, mental illness, and trauma.

Berlinger also executive produces with showrunner Po Kutchins (The Murder of Laci Peterson), Jon Doran, and Jon Kamen. The five-episode series premieres on Starz Sunday, April 18th. Check out the poster below.
