Murphy's limited series will tell the notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer's story from the point of view of his victims, with an emphasis on his white privilege. Murphy co-created Monster with longtime collaborator Ian Brennan, with Janet Mock on board to write and direct. Richard Jenkins will star as Dahmer's father. "Monster chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers, largely told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree," per Deadline. "The series dramatizes at least 10 instances where Dahmer was almost apprehended but ultimately let go. The series also is expected to touch on white privilege, as Dahmer, a clean-cut, good-looking white guy, was repeatedly given a free pass by cops as well as by judges who were lenient when he had been charged with petty crimes."
