Netflix is gearing up for the premiere of Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, a four-part documentary series that will focus on one of America’s biggest serial killers, Ted Bundy. The documentary series is being released on January 24, which just so happens to be the 30th anniversary of his execution.
The Netflix documentary series about Ted Bundy will include never-before-heard recordings and interviews with the prolific serial killer, who rose to fame in the 1970s for all the wrong reasons. He confessed to 30 murders, but police believe that the number of women he has killed is actually much higher.
He was sentenced to death and was executed on January 24, 1989, at the age of 42. It’s uncertain whether the documentary will focus on his marriage to Carole Ann Boone, who married Bundy and supposedly had a daughter with him even though conjugal visits were not allowed. His supposed daughter, Rose Bundy, was born in October 1981.
However, it is expected that the documentary will focus on Ted Bundy’s motives, the media frenzy surrounding his arrest and court appearances, his possible escapes from prison, and the women who fell for the serial killer.
The Netflix documentary is said to be a cinematic self-portrait, a story being told by clips from interviews with Bundy. Viewers may learn more about the unique reasoning behind Ted’s crimes and why he chose to kill. For example, in his final interview with Dr. James Dobson, Bundy revealed that it was aggressive and explicit pornography that drove him to kill.
The documentary comes from Emmy-winning Joe Berlinger, who is also the creative mind behind the upcoming Ted Bundy movie starring Zach Efron.
Netflix seems to be digging into the true crime genre and viewers are loving it. Over the past couple of years alone, the streaming service has released shows such as Making A Murderer, The Staircase, and The Keepers.
Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is set to be released on Netflix on January 24, 2019.
