- The STARZ Original docuseries CONFRONTING A SERIAL KILLER begins streaming on Sunday, April 18. The five-episode series covers the unprecedented relationship between acclaimed author and journalist Jillian Lauren and the most prolific serial killer in American history, Sam Little. Through the perspectives of Lauren and several female investigators, survivors, and victims’ family members, CONFRONTING A SERIAL KILLER shines a light on systemic issues in the criminal justice system including bias against marginalized communities, particularly women of colour, and those struggling with addiction, mental illness, and trauma. CONFRONTING A SERIAL KILLER follows a weekly release schedule, with new episodes dropping Sundays on STARZ.
- Described as “masterfully suspenseful” by The Hollywood Reporter, the HBO limited-series MARE OF EASTTOWN, starring Kate Winslet, premieres Sunday, April 18 at 10 p.m. ET. As her life crumbles around her, a small-town Pennsylvania detective Mare Sheehan (Winslet) investigates a local murder. The series explores the dark side of a close community and provides an authentic examination of how family and past tragedies can define our present. The seven-part series is from creator and writer Brad Ingelsby (THE WAY BACK), with all episodes directed by Craig Zobel (THE LEFTOVERS). MARE OF EASTTOWN follows a weekly release schedule, with new episodes dropping Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Crave.
- From executive producers Mark and Jay Duplass (ROOM 104, THE LADY AND THE DALE), the three-part docuseries SASQUATCH drops on Crave Tuesday, April 20, day-and-date with its rollout in the U.S. on Hulu. While visiting a pot farm in Northern California in 1993, investigative journalist David Holthouse heard a story that still haunts him: on a nearby farm, three men were torn limb from limb in a savage Bigfoot attack. Now, the three-episode, one-hour series follows David as he revisits the redwoods 25 years later, in search of any evidence that might lead to the truth of what happened that night. As he pulls at the threads of this story, he’s taken down a path that’s far more terrifying than anyone would have imagined.
- National Canadian Film Day, Reel Canada’s annual, day-long celebration of homegrown cinema returns on Wednesday, April 21.
