Ted Bundy Documentary Premiers on Netflix Jan. 24, 2019
Netflix is adding another true-crime series to its roster: Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, will premier January 24, 2019, the 30th anniversary of Bundy’s death in the electric chair.
The streaming service, which produced Making a Murderer, The Keepers and The Staircase, the new docu-series from Emmy winner Joe Berlinger will feature previously unheard audio tapes of interviews Bundy gave while on Florida’s death row. The four-episode program will also detail the murders Bundy was either convicted of or confessed to committing, as well as the media frenzy surrounding his trials and his bizarre marriage to Carole Ann Boone in an Orlando court room following his conviction for killing 12-year-old Kimberly Diane Leach of Lake City.
The series is inspired by the book of the same title by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth, who recorded in excess of 100 hours of tape in which Bundy provided his perspective of the killer and analyzed his life and motives without admitting to the killings himself.
Berlinger directed the badly-titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a narrative feature about Bundy starring Zac Efron, that will premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.
Conversations With a Killer is from RadicalMedia in association with Third Eye Motion Picture Company. Berlinger, Justin Wilkes, Jon Doran and Jon Kamen serve as executive producers and Sara Enright as producer.
