The eight-part drama series tells the story of the notorious American serial killer from Jeffrey Dahmer’s point of view. Evan Peters plays Dahmer, and the series shows how he always got away with his crime even after being almost caught at least ten times. This was mainly because he was white, and the police let him down.
Ryan Murphy is working again with Ian Brennan, a writer and producer who helped him make hits like Glee, Scream Queens, and The Politician. So get ready for some terrible things to happen. The miniseries differs from other crime dramas. As it says, it will tell the story from the victims’ points of view instead of the criminal’s.
During the investigation, the Wisconsin Police were also accused of being biased against black people. So, the series also looks at how their system as a whole failed.
