Moochie - Who Killed Jill Halliburton Su?

6x45’ & 90’

Moochie is a six-part true-crime series about a murder case, shot as events unfold, from the police investigation to the jury’s final verdict, in the vein of Making a Murderer or The Staircase. September 2014. Jill Halliburton Su, a wealthy heiress, is found brutally murdered in her Fort Lauderdale home, Florida. The police’s only evidence is a trace of DNA pointing to Dayonte Resiles, nicknamed Moochie, a 20-year-old black man with no history of violence or apparent motive. Despite the weak case against him and the skepticism of the African-American community, Dayonte is indicted and the DA asks for the death penalty. October 2018. Four years after their client was first incarcerated, Dayonte’s defense team begins its investigation in preparation for the trial.

We are following the trial through the eyes of six main characters, each with their own personal stake in the case: from a dedicated defense team, a whistleblower, the suspect’s girlfriend and Moochie. By turns charming and troubling, the ambiguous character at the center of the trial fuels an uneasy suspense. Halfway through the crime show realism of The Wire and Moonlight's cinematographic style, combining observational documentary with scripted narrative, this six part series unfolds in search of who killed Jill Halliburton.
