'Paradise Lost' Director Joe Berlinger Brings 'The Ted Bundy Tapes' to Netflix
Thirty years after he was electrocuted, notorious serial killer Ted Bundy's previously unheard confessions will debut as part of a new series on Netflix.
The streaming service announced today that Joe Berlinger, the director of the acclaimed documentary "Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills," about the West Memphis Three, will direct and produce the four-part series.
"Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes," will feature never-before-heard audio interviews with Bundy on death row.
The series will premiere on January 24, the date of Bundy's execution in 1989.
Per Netflix: "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."
Berlinger is specializing in all things Bundy lately: His feature film "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" starring Zac Efron as Bundy, premieres at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
