Confronting A Serial Killer
As she slips deeper into Little’s sordid world, Jillian realizes
that she may become, psychologically, his last victim.
“Confronting a Serial Killer” is executive produced and directed by Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (The Paradise Lost Trilogy, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes”) with Po Kutchins (“The Murder of Laci Peterson,” “Prison Town, USA,” “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth”) serving as showrunner and executive producer.
The five-episode series tells the timely story of the unprecedented relationship between acclaimed author and journalist Jillian Lauren and the most prolific serial killer in American history, Sam Little, and her race against time to identify his victims before it’s too late.
Through the perspectives of Lauren and several female investigators, survivors, and victims’ family members, “Confronting a Serial Killer” shines a light on systemic issues in the criminal justice system including bias against marginalized communities, particularly women of color, and those struggling with addiction, mental illness, and trauma. The docuseries is produced by Lionsgate Television, Third Eye Motion Picture Company and RadicalMedia.
“It was important to me and everyone working on this project that we put into focus the truly devastating impact that bias in our justice system can have on under-represented groups, particularly women of color. We follow Jillian in her dogged pursuit of justice for some of Sam’s victims and the loved ones they left behind, giving those that had largely been forgotten voice, name and identity.”
