Murder Among the Mormons Trailer: Jared Hess Directs a True Crime Documentary Series


It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a new movie from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, but after directing episodes of shows like Son of Zorn, Making History and The Last Man on Earth, he is now moving away from quirky comedy for the first time as he delves into the realm of true crime. Murder Among the Mormons is an upcoming Netflix documentary series about a series of bombings that took place among the Mormon community in Salt Lake City in 1985. As investigators hunt the perpetrator, several Mormon letters and diaries are found that threaten to destroy the very foundation of the LDS Church. Tyler Measom (An Honest Liar) also directs while true crime kingpin Joe Berlinger is on board as an executive producer. Murder Among the Mormons arrives on Netflix on March 3rd; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
