14. Cold Blooded, Nov. 18
Sundance TV’s Cold Blooded tells the story once covered in perhaps the most popular true crime book ever written, Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. In November 1959, a four-person family was brutally murdered inside their own home in Kansas. Capote started writing the book about this crime almost immediately and followed the entire case until the execution of the suspects, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith.
Since the release of Capote’s book, the story has been adapted on screen a number of times, including in the 1967 drama In Cold Blood, which received widespread acclaim and was nominated for several Oscars. There was also the 2005 movie Capote, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Truman Capote during the writing of In Cold Blood.
