Netflix’s The Confession Killer trailer explores Henry Lee Lucas
Netflix has released the official trailer for The Confession Killer, a five-part documentary series exploring Henry Lee Lucas, who was once called America’s most prolific serial killer who was really a complex figure entangled with a flawed justice system. You can check out the trailer now in the player below as well as the official key art in the gallery!
During the early ’80s, Henry Lee Lucas confessed to hundreds of murders, bringing closure to unsolved cases and grieving families. Even with no direct evidence linking Lucas to the crime scenes, he stunned authorities with his ability to sketch victims’ portraits while citing brutal details of each attack. Yet journalists and attorneys found impossibilities in Lucas’ timeline, and DNA testing started to contradict his internationally-reported claims.
The Confession Killer docuseries is directed by Oscar nominee Robert Kenner (Food, Inc.) and Taki Oldham (The Billionaire’s Tea Party, Go for Broke, Inside the Birdcage).
The Confession Killer will begin streaming globally on December 6.
