John Lennon was tragically gunned down at just 40-years-old on December 8, 1980 by jealous Beatles fan Mark Chapman, who remains incarcerated to this day.
Now 43 years later, a three-part miniseries narrated by Kiefer Sutherland is set to start streaming on Apple TV+ next month with its trailer launched today.
According to the streamer: “The docuseries features exclusive eyewitness interviews and previously unseen crime scene photos, shedding new light on the life and murder of music and cultural icon John Lennon, and the investigation and conviction of Mark David Chapman, his confessed killer.”
Apple TV+ added: “John Lennon: Murder Without A Trial is a deeply researched examination of John Lennon’s 1980 murder, which shocked and saddened the world. “The production was granted extensive Freedom of Information Act requests from the New York City Police Department, the Board of Parole and the District Attorney’s office; and the series includes exclusive interviews including Richard Peterson, a taxi driver who was witness to the shooting; Jay Hastings, a doorman at The Dakota who heard Lennon’s last words; David Suggs, Mark David Chapman’s defense lawyer; Elliot Mintz, a confidant to Lennon and Yoko Ono; and Dr Naomi Goldstein, the psychiatrist who first assessed Chapman.”
