Netflix has announced a new docuseries titled Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. The four-episode series will feature never-before-heard audio interviews with Ted Bundy on death row. The series will launch on January 24 — 30 years after the date of his execution in Florida.
Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes brings the infamously twisted mind of serial killer Ted Bundy into the light for the very first time. The chilling series will invade our psyche with exclusive interviews that come from the “Jack the Ripper of the United States,” himself. This unique and gripping doc series focuses on the man whose personality, good looks and social graces defied the serial-killer stereotype, allowing him to hide in plain sight as he committed the brutal sex-crime slayings of more than 30 women before being caught in 1978. While on trial, Bundy received extraordinary adoration from American women, which made his gruesome crimes doubly haunting, even in an era of anything-goes mayhem.
Inspired the book of the same name written by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth, the series utilizes over 100 hours of exclusive audio interviews that the two journalists conducted with Bundy on death row in 1980, giving the unique perspective of hearing the killer analyze his own life and motives.
Joe Berlinger will serve as director and as executive producer alongside Justin Wilkes, Jon Doran and Jon Kamen. Sara Enright serves as producer. RadicalMedia is the production company in association with Third Eye Motion Picture Company. Berlinger also has the scripted Ted Bundy feature Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, premiering at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
