Wormwood Trailer: Errol Morris Explores CIA Secrets in Netflix Series


Errol Morris has spent most of his career making meticulous and offbeat documentaries that often focus on true stories that are, as they say, stranger than fiction. He directed just one fictional film back in 1991 called The Dark Wind but now this year he is stepping back into the realm of scripted storytelling by teaming with Netflix for an original series called Wormwood. It is still based on a true story, however, and revolves around “one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death… which brings him face-to-face with some of the darkest secrets of the United States.” The show will blend real-life interviews with re-enactments featuring a solid cast that includes Peter Sarsgaard, Molly Parker, Christian Camargo, Jimmi Simpson, Bob Balaban, Tim Blake Nelson and John Doman. All six episodes of Wormwood will drop on Netflix on Dec. 15th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
