The Murder of Laci Peterson

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 21h25
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series, Mystery

The Murder of Laci Peterson

This six-episode series explores the infamous Scott Peterson trial, the case that destroyed a family, gripped a nation and defined an era, as a vehicle for understanding America's criminal justice system and the ways in which outside influences can affect that system.

The mystery of Laci Peterson's disappearance on Christmas Eve 2002 captivated the USA.

Eight months pregnant, she vanished without a trace.

Her body and that of her unborn child, Conner, appeared four months later on the shores of the San Francisco Bay causing a media frenzy on both a local and national level.

To this day, no one knows exactly when, where or how she died, only that her husband Scott Peterson was convicted of murder and sentenced to death, despite the absence of DNA evidence or eyewitness testimony.

Scott Peterson's conviction was less a tribute to the efficacy of the legal system than it was a case study for the overwhelming power of modern media to deliver the facts of news in a way that creates irresistible tabloid fodder.

The Murder of Laci Peterson takes a fresh, new look at the case, reexamining the circumstantial evidence and assessing the media's influence on the case and its outcome.

This series includes access to Scott Peterson and his family as they speak directly and candidly about Scott's conviction.

In addition, the series includes interviews with an expansive and impressive list of key eyewitnesses, experts, lawyers, cops, journalists, detectives (professional and amateur), including Nancy Grace, Gloria Allred, Amber Frey, and Detectives Jon Buehler and Ed Steele.

There are also journalists Ken Auletta and Maureen Orth, reporters Gloria Gomez and Garth Stapley, Scott Peterson's trial co-counsel Pat Harris, his appellate attorney Cliff Gardner, attorney and CNN and ABC contributor Chris Pixley and local reporter turned CNN correspondent Ted Rowlands among many others.

Even in a workplace filled with reptilian shapeshifters and psychic mushrooms, she's seen as the odd one out for believing the world could be a better place.

Adventure Beast

An adult-animated comedy series about life in the wild that takes us deeper into the wonders of nature than we probably should go.

BTG is joined on these expeditions by his fearless Junior Field Assistant and favourite niece Bonnie, and his fearful-of-absolutely-everything Senior Field Assistant, Dietrich.

Jungles, deserts, oceans, glaciers... no matter where the mission takes them, the team constantly finds themselves surrounded by all kinds of fascinating animals that are just waiting for the chance to kill them.

And, every adventure is told through BTG's unique voice and twisted view of nature.
