If you can’t get enough of true crime documentaries, which are all the rage at the moment thanks in large part to Netflix, the network Epix has just announced out of the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that they’re partnering with Blumhouse Television for the upcoming docu-series “Fall River,” a tale of murder and Satanic Panic.

Here’s the rundown, via Deadline:

“1979 – Fall River, MA – home to the notorious Lizzie Borden, three young women were killed in a series of brutal murders. Police alleged a satanic cult was practicing human sacrifice. The cult leader, a man named Carl Drew, was captured and sent to prison for life without parole. Twenty years after the trial, the lead investigator became so haunted by inconsistencies in the stories that he re-investigated his own case after he retired. Evidence surfaced bringing the entire story into question.”

“This documentary series will tell the shocking true story of a town caught in the grips of the Satanic Panic, with new witnesses and evidence that shed light on murders that were thought to have been solved.”

“Fall River” is produced by Blumhouse Television (The Jinx, No One Saw A Thing, The Loudest Voice) and Pyramid Productions.

The docu-series is directed by James Buddy Day (The Lover’s Lane Murders, Manson: The Women, The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell).
