The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness

Directed by Joshua Zeman, the series revisits the infamous string of murders that shook New York City in the late Seventies but also explores the argument that David Berkowitz wasn't a lone killer. To that end, the series delves into the work of journalist Maury Terry, who became convinced Berkowitz hadn't acted alone and spent decades trying to prove it.
