Amazon Prime Video to premiere docuseries on Ted Bundy in 2020
MUMBAI: Amazon Prime Video has announced the upcoming launch of ‘Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer’, a five-part Amazon Original docuseries chronicling infamous serial killer Ted Bundy’s relationship with his long-term girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall. Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer will premiere in 2020 exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer reframes Bundy’s crimes from a female perspective – uncovering the disturbing and profound way in which Bundy’s pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s, culminating in what is perhaps the most infamous true crime saga of our time.
After nearly 40 years of silence, Kendall and her daughter Molly share their experiences with new unsettling details about Bundy, the inconceivable pull he had on women, and an abundant archive of never-before-seen family photos.
They are joined by a chorus of female voices, including survivors of Bundy’s attacks – some of whom are stepping forward for the first time – with chilling accounts that will forever change the Bundy narrative and provoke a discussion around gender politics that hauntingly resonates today.
Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer is a production of Amazon Studios and Saloon Media, a Blue Ant Studios company. Producer/Director Trish Wood was a journalist for the CBC where she spent a decade reporting and producing investigative documentaries for the network’s award-winning current affairs program The Fifth Estate.
The launch of the series will also coincide with the release of an updated and expanded edition of Kendall’s 1981 memoir The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy, which is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
