Amazon Announced Ted Bundy: Falling For a Killer Docuseries
Ted Bundy's Former Partner Elizabeth Kendall Breaks Silence After 40 Years in New Doc
If there's one woman who knew really knew Ted Bundy, it was his former girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer Kendall. The pair dated throughout the 1970s, and she eventually wrote a memoir — titled The Phantom Prince: My Life With Ted Bundy — in 1981 to share her side of the story. She will appear in Amazon Prime Video's new documentary series Ted Bundy: Falling For a Killer alongside her daughter Molly, who was a toddler when she met Bundy.
The five-part docuseries will chronicle Kendall's relationship with Bundy, and she'll be sharing photos from her archive of never-before-seen family photos. "After nearly 40 years of silence, Kendall and her daughter Molly share their experiences with new unsettling details about Bundy, [and] the inconceivable pull he had on women," Amazon said in the statement released on Oct. 16. "They are joined by a chorus of female voices, including survivors of Bundy's attacks — some of whom are stepping forward for the first time — with chilling accounts that will forever change the Bundy narrative."
Through the pair's first-person stories, the series is reframing Bundy's horrific crimes from a female perspective and exploring the disturbing and profound ways his pathological hatred of women played out during the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s.
The series, Ted Bundy: Falling For a Killer, is set for release on Amazon Prime Video in 2020.
