I’ll Be Gone in the Dark is a six-part documentary series based on the book of the same name by Michelle McNamara’s investigation into the dark world of a violent predator who she called “The Golden State Killer.”
McNamara was married to comedian Patton Oswalt. She lived a quiet life as a writer, mother and a wife who preferred to stay low on the periphery of Hollywood. But every night as she slept, she indulged her obsession with unsolved cases that led her to investigate the man who terrorized California in the ’70s and ’80s with 50 home-invasion rapes and 12 murders.
The series is directed by Academy Award nominee and Emmy winning director Liz Garbus. McNamara’s words from the original recordings and excerpts from her book are read by actor Amy Ryan in the series. The series will showcase extensive archival footage and Police files as well as exclusive interviews with the detectives, survivors and family members of the killer.
Unfortunately, McNamara is no more, she tragically died of an accidental overdose while writing her book. The series will be streaming on HBO Max from June 28th, 2020. So, we can expect it to stream on Disney+ Hotstar simultaneously.
