Check out the first trailer for the documentary adaptation of the true-crime novel, I’ll Be Gone In The Dark. This book was the late Michelle McNamara’s life work, crime blogger, and creator of TrueCrimeDiary.
She put her passion into the then unsolved case of the Golden State Killer, a term she used after coming across the fact that he was the serial rapist and murderer who had been known as the East Area Rapist, the Original Nightstalker, and other names throughout California, and produced this bestselling book from her research. She, sadly, passed away in 2016 while writing, but the book was concluded by her colleagues and husband, comedian Patton Oswald, and was ultimately released posthumously in February of 2018.
Two months after its release, and eight weeks into the book’s New York Times Bestseller List reign, Joseph James DeAngelo, the Golden State Killer, was arrested, and many say her research aided to his capture. Now HBO is releasing their documentary based on the serial killer and the production of McNamara’s novel.
Check out I’ll Be Gone In The Dark on HBO and HBO Max on June 28th.
