If there’s one thing Netflix knows, it’s how to create a good ol’ true crime documentary and would you look at that? Here’s another.
Making a Murderer has cemented itself as one of the streaming giant’s biggest success stories, by some way and with part two being met with equal excitement it’s no wonder Netflix is opting to expand on its crime offering.
Call it morbid curiosity but there’s something about any kind of serial killer documentary that makes it vastly appealing. Now Netflix is turning its attention to one of the most infamous killers of all time, Ted Bundy.
The doc has been created by Emmy winner Joe Berlinger and will feature four episodes of previously unheard audio taken from interviews with Bundy while he was on death row in Florida.
Bundy was convicted of and confessed to murdering more than 30 women in the 1970s.
The documentary will also focus on the killings, the strange idolisation of Bundy by a number of women, his in-court marriage to Carol Ann Boone and the media frenzy that surrounded his trials.
Berlinger has already produced a film focused on Bundy, Vile, which featured Zac Effron as the title character.
Lily Collins, John Malkovich and Kim Parsons have also been cast in the production, which is set to be released next year, and the narrative will tell the story of Bundy from the perspective of his girlfriend Eliabeth Kloepfer, who struggled to accept the reality of her boyfriend’s nature.
Given the celebrity-like nature of Bundy’s story, Netflix is almost guaranteed to pull in some pretty huge viewing figures as viewers seek to learn more about his morbid case.
