Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger is set to explore the murders made famous by Truman Capote.
Berlinger is set to direct and produce “Murder in the Heartland: In Cold Blood Revisited” for SundanceTV. The four-part docuseries will dig even deeper into the 1959 quadruple murder that Capote made famous in his 1966 book “In Cold Blood.”
Berlinger, who has been developing the project for more than a year, revealed why he’s so thrilled at the opportunity to revisit the infamous crime.
“I have long been obsessed with Capote’s genre-busting masterwork, but even more fascinated by the underlying crime and its impact on the American psyche,” said Berlinger. “The opportunity to explore my obsession, in light of new information we have uncovered, with a network and brand that I have long been associated with and which represents cinematic quality at its most intelligent is a dream situation for a nonfiction filmmaker of my background.”
“Murder in the Heartland: In Cold Blood Revisited” does not yet have a premiere date.
