We’re pleased to announce that The Rialto Report are onboard as Consultant Producers of a new television series – Crime Scene: The Times Square Killer – premiering on Netflix on Wednesday 29th December at 12am PST.
The series will be available to watch here.
Oscar-nominated and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger returns to direct season two of Crime Scene, the acclaimed Netflix documentary series that unpacks the ways in which certain locations aid and abet criminal activity.
Season two begins as firemen respond to a call at a seedy hotel in the middle of Times Square in December 1979. What they discover among the smoke and ash shocks even the most seasoned NYC homicide detectives, triggering a hunt for a vicious serial killer who preyed upon sex workers operating within Times Square’s then-booming, anything-goes sex industry.
The three-part series takes viewers deep into the investigation, detailing the social and systemic forces at play in a near-lawless area that allowed multiple horrific crimes to go unnoticed for too long. A wide range of subjects are profiled to bring the era to life, from Times Square denizens to beat cops to the daughter of New York’s self-proclaimed porno king. With exclusive access to Jennifer Weiss, the daughter of one of the victims, the series also underscores her efforts to identify others who have remained Jane Does, lost to an infamous, long-gone time and place.
