How to watch ‘The Name of the Rose’ for free

Murder. Palace intrigue. Feudalism. No, this isn’t another secret season of Game of Thrones, but it might fill the Westeros-sized hole in your heart and television schedule. The Name of the Rose is the miniseries adaptation of the classic 1980 Umberto Eco novel of the same name. The story is a historical murder mystery set in 1327 Italy.

Franciscan Friar William of Baskerville is tasked with solving a chain of unusual deaths in an isolated Benedictine abbey. William must solve the case with his faithful apprentice while dodging the aims of a particularly wrathful inquisitor. The series is a study in semiotics, medieval studies, and biblical analysis. 

The Name of the Rose has been adapted before, but SundanceTV is fleshing out the novel into eight episodes, so no detail, character, or subtlety is left out of the incredibly lofty novel’s adaptation, and it features John Turturro in the starring role no less.

Programming Dahmer Documentary Goes Deep

REELZ has dabbled in crime docs many times over the years, but last summer’s “Ted Bundy: Serial Monster” was the first time the network spread true crime over two nights—two hours each night.

“It was one of our highest-rated shows of the year,” REELZ programming svp Steve Cheskin told us. So he turned to Bundy director Michael Hoff to see what other stories might warrant a deeper dive. That was the genesis of “Jeffrey Dahmer: Killer Cannibal,” which will premiere Sunday and Monday at 9pm ET on the net. Hoff said today’s viewer demands such in-depth coverage. “The audience is fairly jaded and fairly sophisticated. We’ve got people who have read all kinds of books about Dahmer, [John Wayne] Gacy, Bundy… and are really into it in detail,” Hoff explained.

“We’re in this era of binge viewing, where people who have an interest in the subject, they want to go deep.” Killer
