First Trailer: Netflix’s “Wormwood” Series

After having a bonafide true crime story smash with “Making of a Murderer,” Netflix is diving back into the genre with the latest effort from “The Thin Blue Line” and “The Fog of War” director Errol Morris.

“Wormwood” is a six episode series which will tell the untold true story of the CIA’s experiments with LSD and mind control on an unsuspecting populous and one man’s decades-long quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death.

Peter Sarsgaard, Christian Camargo, Scott Shepherd, Molly Parker, Jimmi Simpson, Jack O’Connell, Bob Balaban, Tim Blake Nelson, John Doman, Hillary Gardner, Michael Chernus, and Chance Kelly all star in the mini-series.

“Wormwood” premieres in its entirety at Venice before hitting the streaming service on December 15th.
