A new “true crime pairing” in California Screaming month begins with this latest installment of Christopher & Eric’s True Crime TV Club, serving up a two-part documentary special about the case that ushered in a new era of human depravity and horror in the City of Angels. In episodes 7 and 8 of season 4 of VERY SCARY PEOPLE: “The Hillside Stranglers Part 1 and 2”, host Donnie Wahlberg channels his inner Blue Blood to bring us the tale of a terrifying, seemingly random murder spree that claimed the lives of a diverse cross section of the city’s innocent women before it unveiled a house of unspeakable horrors in middle of an often overlooked Los Angeles suburb. The stunning and seemingly unconnected array of victims as well as the media’s response raises intriguing questions about LA’s sense of itself as a city with fluid borders. Next week, they’ll serve up the second half of this “true crime pairing” with a 1989 TV movie based on the case.
New York Times bestselling novelists Christopher Rice (The Burning Girl Series) and Eric Shaw Quinn (The Write Murder Mysteries) return to their studio on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip for an all new podcast that’s all talk. Join them for their trademark blend of humor, irreverence and passionate opinion as they dish on some of the most popular true crime TV shows of the moment in their recurring, special feature “Christopher & Eric’s True Crime TV Club”.
