Sons of Sam: On Wednesday (7), Netflix released the first trailer for its new documentary miniseries. These are Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness. The production delves into the story of David Berkowitz and a frightening wave of murders in 1970s New York.
The serial killer was responsible for the deaths of six people, but throughout the episodes of the miniseries, viewers will get a new perspective on the cases.
According to the filmmakers, Berkowitz would not have committed his crimes alone. The hypothesis was initially raised by journalist Maury Terry – author of several books focused on the story of Sam’s children, a nickname by which the criminal became best known.
