New York, NY - July 17, 2017 - A&E Network will premiere the new six-episode, limited documentary series, "The Murder of Laci Peterson" showcasing new interviews with Scott Peterson himself from prison.

"A&E is in the business of finding and uncovering the real stories behind some of the most impactful cultural moments that our audience hasn't heard and 'The Murder of Laci Peterson' does exactly that," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, A&E Network."The media's obsession with the Scott Peterson trial was unlike anything seen before.This new series will cut through the mass hysteria that has plagued and distorted the reporting of this story to deliver, for the first time, a definitive factual account by those who lived and breathed it every day."

The mystery of Laci Peterson's disappearance on Christmas Eve 2002 captivated the nation. Eight months pregnant, she vanished without a trace.Her body and that of her unborn child, Conner, appeared four months later on the shores of the San Francisco Bay causing a media frenzy on both a local and national level. To this day, no one knows exactly when, where or how she died, only that her husband Scott Peterson was convicted of murder and sentenced to death, despite the absence of DNA evidence or eyewitness testimony.Scott Peterson's conviction was less a tribute to the efficacy of the legal system than it was a case study for the overwhelming power of modern media to deliver the facts of news in a way that creates irresistible tabloid fodder.

As the 15th Anniversary of Laci Peterson's disappearance approaches, "The Murder of Laci Peterson" takes a fresh, new look at the case, reexamining the circumstantial evidence and assessing the media's influence on the case and its outcome. This documentary series will include unprecedented access to Scott Peterson and his family as they speak directly and candidly about Scott's conviction.
