- I Am Elizabeth Smart
This film recaps the day in 2002 Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell. Narrated by Smart herself, the film tells the story of her ordeal, including the bizarre religious rituals, starvation, and drugs she was forced to endure at the hands of Mitchell and his wife before her eventual rescue.
- Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story
Based on the life of Miami-based drug lord Griselda Blanco, this movie takes an in-depth look at how she snuck into the U.S. with a fake passport and built an empire using women, elderly, and children to smuggle cocaine from Colombia. Her epic rise into money and violence included the order of over 200 murders, a decade in jail, and her eventual death in 2012.
- The Lost Wife of Robert Durst
When young Kathie falls in love with the charming and quirky real estate tycoon Robert Durst, she never could have predicted the disturbing and strange turn their marriage would take. Starring Katharine McPhee, the movie follows the dark and twisted path of their relationship before Kathie’s disappearance, and suspected murder, in 1982.
- Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer
Tells the story of the sprint runner dubbed the “Blade Runner,” and his rise to fame as a gold medalist Paralympic champion and as the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics. Oscar’s (Andreas Damm, “Elementary”) resilience to overcome his disability combined with his apparent fairy tale relationship with model Reeva Steenkamp (Toni Garrn, “Under the Bed”) turned him into a media favorite. This all shattered one Valentine’s Day night when four bullets were fired and Reeva’s life was taken. Her brutal death shocked the world and the court room drama that followed consumed the news.
