Netflix Orders True Crime Series on Ted Bundy
Netflix has ordered “Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes,” a true-crime docuseries about serial killer Ted Bundy.

The docuseries will be directed by Joe Berlinger, who is helming a separate scripted film about the serial killer, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” which stars Zac Efron as Bundy, and will premiere at Sundance.

The four-part series will feature previously unheard audio of interviews with Bundy while he was on death row in Florida. This unique and gripping doc series focuses on the man whose personality, good looks and social graces defied the serial-killer stereotype, allowing him to hide in plain sight as he committed the brutal sex-crime slayings of more than 30 women before being caught in 1978. While on trial, Bundy received extraordinary adoration from American women, which made his gruesome crimes doubly haunting, even in an era of anything-goes mayhem.

It will premiere on Jan 24, 2019, 30 years after the date of his execution in Florida.

He does take on strange parts in movies now and again but somehow he makes them work and is able to get people to think that he’s come up with a new way to show an old role so that it pops just enough to be noticed. Then he’ll take on roles that aren’t quite vanilla but are more widely accepted and still manage to steal the show just

‘True Detective’ Season 3: New Trailer Digs Into the Romance Driving Mahershala Ali
Women have been a sticking point for “True Detective” in past seasons, with critics accusing the show of casting female characters into one of a few, predictable camps.

But Season 3 is looking to correct a few past mistakes, including elevating the relevance and dynamism of its notable female lead Amelia Reardon, played by the great Carmen Ejogo. As an Arkansas schoolteacher connected to two children who go missing in the 1980, Reardon forms a relationship with Detective Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali) that gets mixed up with a mystery enveloping them both for decades to come.

Ejogo was last seen in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Roman J.
