In 1980, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man. During the early days of the agency’s criminal profiling unit, FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier met with the incarcerated Ted Bundy in the hopes of understanding the psychology of the serial killer and providing closure for the victim’s families. As Hagmaier delves into Bundy’s dark and twisted mind, a strange and complicated relationship develops that neither man expected.
No Man of God will be led by Elijah Wood (Come to Daddy) as Bill Hagmaier, Luke Kirby (Fury) as Ted Bundy, Aleksa Palladino (Boardwalk Empire) as Caroline Lieberman, and Robert Patrick (Perry Mason) as Roger Depue.
