Ted Bundy Documentary Series with Elizabeth Kendall and Molly Kendall Coming to Amazon


The last year has seen a marathon of Ted Bundy movies and television shows. First, Netflix released a documentary about the infamous serial killer’s life. Then, Zac Efron took a turn at playing the murderous charmer in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. There’s also been dozens of podcasts that probe into his complicated psyche. If your true-crime thirst remains unquenched, however, there’s one more to add to the list: Amazon Prime will debut a docuseries featuring exclusive new interviews with Bundy’s ex- girlfriend, Elizabeth Kendall, and her daughter, Molly,.

The five-part Amazon Original Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer debuts next year, according to a press release sent to ELLE.com. Both Elizabeth and Molly, who rarely give interviews, will “share their experiences with new unsettling details about Bundy, the inconceivable pull he had on women, and an abundant archive of never-before-seen family photos,” according to the press release. The series will also uncover the “disturbing and profound way in which Bundy’s pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s, culminating in what is perhaps the most infamous true crime saga of our time.”

The Amazon series coincides with a relaunch of Elizabeth’s 1981 memoir, The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy. Elizabeth met Bundy at a bar, as she writes in the book, and Molly, then a toddler, looked up to him as a sort-of father figure. The book went out of print after just a few years, but is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com. It is being re-released January 7, 2020, and includes a new chapter written by Molly.

Several survivors of Bundy’s fatal rampage across the country will also appear in Falling for a Killer—including, according to Amazon’s press release, several woman who’ve never spoken about their encounters before.
