New Jeffrey Dahmer Docuseries to Feature First Interviews With Surviving Victims

Oxygen’s latest big true crime project is all about notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Dahmer raped, murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991. He was sentenced to 16 life sentences for his crimes and was later beaten to death by a fellow inmate.

The network’s two-night special, entitled Dahmer on Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks, will rely mainly on investigative journalist Nancy Glass’ televised interviews of the madman.

Glass had exclusive access to Dahmer for interviews and will detail her experiences with him that took place on and off camera.

A Brutal Murder Revisited: America’s First True Crime Story Emerges in SundanceTV Docuseries, ‘Cold Blooded’

One fateful night in 1959, two men broke into the home of Herbert and Bonnie Clutter in the farming town of Holcomb, Kansas. They were looking for a safe that they had heard was in the house. By morning, they had brutaly murdered the Clutters and their two youngest children, Nancy and Kenyon. No safe or money had been found.

The Clutter murders shocked the nation, and when novelist Truman Capote, famous at that point for Breakfast at Tiffanys, visited the town with fellow novelist friend Harper Lee, he, like the nation, became obsessed with the Clutter killings and the murderers—Richard “Dick” Hickock and Perry Smith. He would spend six years writing In Cold Blood, what has been called the first non-fiction novel. It remains the second-best-selling true crime book in publishing history, after Vincent Bugliosi’s Helter Skelter, about the Manson murders.

Ben Stiller takes on true crime in Escape at Dannemora — first look

On June 6, 2015, two convicted murderers named David Sweat and Richard Matt escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY. The men had used carpentry tools to tunnel out of the prison, triggering comparisons to The Shawshank Redemption. Or as one pun-ecstatic New York newspaper put it, “Shaw-skank,” owing to the fact that prison seamstress Joyce Mitchell was sexually involved with both men and an accomplice in their escape.

The ensuing three-week ­manhunt was one of the costliest and most intense in New York history — and riveting source material for a TV dramatization. In production now, Escape at Dannemora stars Benicio Del Toro as Matt, Paul Dano as Sweat, and Patricia Arquette as Mitchell. (The teleplay is co-written by Oscar-nominated scribe Michael Tolkin, who penned Robert Altman’s savage The Player, and Mad Men‘s Brett Johnson. The men brainstormed the idea for the series

Edie Falco stars in first ‘Law & Order True Crime’ – Pittsburgh Post

“The research revealed things that none of us knew, and that’s one of the things that I think is most impactful about the eight hours,” he said during an August NBC press conference at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. “I don’t care what attitude you go in. Your mind is going to receive information that I think will change a lot of people’s attitudes. … This is one of the crimes of the century. It’s absolutely horrible, but when you see the information, I think people are going to realize, well, yeah, they did it, but it wasn’t first degree murder, with no possibility of parole. They probably should have been out eight or 10 years ago, because they should have been convicted of first degree manslaughter, which is a different punishment than first degree murder.  So, yes, this is a show that has an agenda to it.”
