True crime series really are the flavour of the moment in 2018.
At the forefront of that is streaming kings Netflix, who seem to be knocking the addictive documentaries out at a dizzying rate.
Making a Murderer Part 2, Mindhunter, The Staircase, Evil Genius – they’ve all been binge-worthy additions to the genre this year, and now it seems like we have another with a new show about Ted Bundy.
Titled Conversations With A Killer, the four part series follows the infamous story of one of the world’s most notorious serial killers, featuring never-heard-before audio interviews with the murderer from when he was on death row up to his execution on January 24th, 1989.
Bundy, who was born as Theodore Robert Bundy, had confessed to 30 murders, but detectives feared the true number could have been higher – having killed and raped numerous young women and girls throughout the 1970s.
Slated for release in the new year on 24th January 2019, the series will take viewers “inside the mind” of a serial killer and will look into the media frenzy surrounding his trial, as well as his infamously charismatic way of charming women.
It will also touch on his bizarre marriage to Carol Ann Boone in the middle of court, who was testifying on his behalf at the time.
Netflix describe the series as a portrait painted by Bundy himself:
“Get a unique look inside the mind of an infamous serial killer with this cinematic self-portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy.”
The show comes from Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated director Joe Berlinger, who is also behind Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a forthcoming thriller starring Zac Efron as Bundy.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Efron said he was looking forward to such a challenging role:
“Ted Bundy is going to be a challenge,” he said.
“I think it’s going to be different and it’s going to be fun. I’m super stoked.”
