Helter Skelter: Epix sets new Charles Manson docuseries for June

“Helter Skelter set outs to illuminate new perspectives on one of the most legendary crimes of our time.” Creator Lesley Chilcott said in a statement (via The Fruton Critic). “The filmmaking team and I are grateful for the collaborations with Berlanti Productions, Rogue Atlas, Warner Horizon and EPIX and the opportunity to tell this complete story.”

Before the Menendez brothers, OJ, and Ted Bundy, there was the biggest story of murder and crime in the modern age. Over 50 years have passed since Charles Manson and his cultishly devoted followers committed their horrific crimes, and yet, the public remains truly in the dark about The Manson Family and their journey into the abyss. How can one story be so well known, so legendary, and yet so little understood?

In the most comprehensive telling of the Manson Family yet told in a visual medium, Helter Skelter features never-before-accessed interviews from former family members and journalists first on the scene and in the courtroom, weaving these original narratives with archival footage and newly-unearthed images. It will upend what people think they know about this layered and complex story and cast an entirely new light on this Crime of the Century.

“Helter Skelter is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about a small-time con artist who spearheaded one of the most unspeakable murder tragedies in history,” Executive Vice President and Head of Warner Horizon Unscripted Television, Brooke Karzen said. “It explores the age-old question: are killers born or are they made?”

Helter Skelter is directed and executive produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Lesley Chilcott (An Inconvenient Truth). Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schecter will serve as executive producers through their Berlanti Productions along with Rogue Atlas Productions’ Eli Frankel. The docuseries is a production by Warner Horizon Unscripted Television.
