Prime Video, A&E track down serial killer docuseries Butchers of the Bayou

Butchers of the Bayou follows a series of murders around Baton Rogue

Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service and US channels operator A+E Networks have acquired the rights to Butchers of the Bayou, a true crime documentary miniseries set in Lousiana.

The 4×60’ miniseries investigates two serial killers and their reign of terror in the Baton Rogue area which left 53 women dead.

It will be made available on the streamer in the UK and Ireland while in the rest of the world it will air on A+E channel A&E, under a deal agreed by London-based distributor Abacus Media Rights.

The show, produced by Dublin- and New York-based Peninsula Television and helmed by Blood Line Detectives director David Harvey, uses never-before-seen testimony and archive footage from law enforcement agencies.

Butchers of the Bayou is the first of several projects planned by Peninsula, whose titles include Return to Downton and Teens Who Kill, and Abacus Media Rights in the coming months.
