Trailer for Documentary on Casey Anthony Released by Peacock

Share

The streaming service Peacock has released the trailer for a documentary series on Casey Anthony.

Anthony made headlines in 2008 after her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, disappeared.

Six months after her disappearance, Caylee’s remains were found near the family’s home.

Anthony was then acquitted of murder charges on July 5, 2011.

The Hollywood Reporter noted the three-part limited series titled, “Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies,” marks the first-on camera interview with Caylee’s mother.

The trailer opens with Anthony’s 911 call about her daughter.

“It’s not the Casey that I knew,” on friend says in the trailer, adding, “She loved that child.”

Anthony herself says, “I lied.”

She continues, “But no one asked why.”

Should Anthony be given a platform?

The Reporter pointed out since the release of a teaser for the project last week, users on Twitter have voiced their outrage.

Director of the project, Alexandra Dean, issued a statement along with the release of trailer.

“Since her acquittal in 2011, public opinion of Casey Anthony has been largely shaped by the media convinced of her guilt. Casey had never given an in-depth or on-camera interview explaining her actions until now, and as a filmmaker and journalist, my interest was in getting closer to the unbiased truth by hearing all sides of the story — from opposing voices to Casey herself,” Dean said.

She added, “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.”

According to Dean, “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.”
