The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a true-crime series about the serial killer, has now had its first glimpse. (Yes, that's the full, actual title of the show.)
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is being pitched by Netflix for a show that concentrates less on the horrific details of the killings and more on the circumstances surrounding them. Here's the synopsis: Dahmer is one of the most well-known serial murderers in history. He murdered 17 people between 1978 and 1991; he also dismembered his victims and engaged in necrophilia and cannibalism.
Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17 innocent people between 1978 and 1991. DAHMER - Monster is a series that investigates these unconscionable crimes and centers on the underserved victims and their communities affected by systemic racism and institutional deficiencies of the police that allowed one of America's most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.
Peters' participation in WandaVision, where he played Dahmer, has been a significant milestone in his career. He has continued to make a name for himself through his roles in Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse.
Netflix is releasing Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which also stars Niecy Nash, Richard Jenkins, and Molly Ringwald, on September 21. The three-part series Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes will air on October 7th.
