The brothers’ best friends and neighbors, the lead detectives, lawyers and jurors on the case, and the family members profile the intimate details of the Menendez family, including Erik’s secret life.
The special is produced by ABC News. David Sloan is senior executive producer. Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers – American Sons, American Murderers airs Thursday, January 5 at 9 PM.
