Viewers will gain exclusive access to Alex Murdaugh’s defense team Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin, behind-the-scenes footage before and during the trial, never-before-seen home movies, as well as intimate prison revelations from Alex himself. These unique assets will take viewers behind the veil of the Murdaugh’s legal strategy as it happened in real time and will be interwoven with sit-down interviews with the same legal team, as well as the lead prosecutor on the case, Creighton Waters, and Attorney General Alan Wilson, who discuss their current strategy.
In addition to the legal component, the series aims to dive into the fraught life of Alex, Maggie, Paul and Buster and their own scandals as a family, including a string of crimes, deaths and mysteries that continued to weave the Murdaugh’s tangled web. Additional interviews throughout the series include court clerk Rebecca Hill, local attorney Joe McCulloch, Moselle dog kennel manager Roger Dale Davis Jr., Walterboro Mayor William T.
