Casey Anthony tells all in first-look at Where The Truth Lies

In 2011, Casey Anthony was put on trial for allegedly murdering her young daughter, Caylee, in 2008. After a highly publicized trial, Anthony was found not guilty. Now, Anthony is finally sitting down to explain her side of the story in Peacock’s new documentary, Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies.

The three-part limited series includes a collection of interviews with Anthony as she describes the investigation and trial that would define her life for over a decade. In the teaser, Anthony is asked about why she decided to speak for the documentary despite not having creative control. Before she can speak, the teaser cuts to black before these three words appear: “Casey Anthony speaks.”

Alexandra Dean, best known for This Is Paris and Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, serves as showrunner and director for Casey Anthony: Where The Truth LiesIn a statement released from Peacock, Dean said: “While having access to Casey was critical, it was even more important that we had complete editorial control over the outcome of the reporting we did. Casey did not see or give notes on the film. What emerges over the course of multiple interviews recorded over six months is a startling psychological portrait of Casey Anthony and a complete narrative of what she says happened to her daughter weighed against multiple sources of potential evidence. I believe the result will surprise many, and cause the American public to look at this story in a new light.”

In addition to interviews with Anthony, the true crime docuseries will showcase behind-the-scenes footage and evidence presented by the defense. Tamra Simmons, Ebony Porter-Ike, Laura Michalchyshyn, and Sam Sniderman will executive produce, and Chanel Hudson-O’Connor and Katie Turley-Molony will co-executive produce.

Captive Audience tells the true crime story of two brothers
A poster for Hulu's Captive Audience.

Life isn't a story, and if it was, then the ordeal of the Stayner family would be too far-fetched for fiction. Over the course of five decades, the Stayners endured the kidnapping of their 7-year-old son, Steven, and his dramatic return a decade later. However, Steven's story doesn't have a happy ending, and things only got worse for his family. Steven's older brother, Cary Stayner, went on to become an infamous serial killer who stained the family name.

Later this month, Hulu will dive into the story of the Stayner brothers in Captive Audience: A Real American Horror Story, a new true-crime miniseries. In the trailer for the series, there's not a lot of happiness to be found. Steven's surviving family members recount their memories about his ordeal. He overcame years of sexual abuse to rescue a fellow kidnapping victim, Timothy White. For his actions, Steven was hailed as a hero by the media, and his story was adapted as a TV movie called I Know My First Name is Steven.
