Casey Anthony is breaking her silence in Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies.
The trailer for the three-part Peacock docuseries sees the woman acquitted of murdering her daughter Caylee sit down for her first on-camera interview in 11 years. "I lied," says Anthony. "But no one asked why."
It's been almost 14 years since Anthony was arrested for the disappearance and death of her 2-year-old daughter, becoming the center of one of the biggest trials in recent history. Anthony admitted to lying to the police multiple times during the investigation, and has often been scrutinized for waiting 31 days to report Caylee missing. A Florida jury found her not guilty in 2011.
"Since her acquittal in 2011, public opinion of Casey Anthony has been largely shaped by the media convinced of her guilt. Casey had never given an in-depth or on-camera interview explaining her actions until now, and as a filmmaker and journalist, my interest was in getting closer to the unbiased truth by hearing all sides of the story – from opposing voices to Casey herself," said showrunner Alexandra Dean (This Is Paris, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story).
"Casey did not see or give notes on the film. What emerges over the course of multiple interviews recorded over six months, is a startling psychological portrait of Casey Anthony and a complete narrative of what she says happened to her daughter weighed against multiple sources of potential evidence," she continued. "I believe the result will surprise many, and cause the American public to look at this story in a new light."
The docuseries is also set to feature "Casey’s personal archives, behind the scenes footage and the defense’s evidence for a never-before-seen look into both sides of a story that ignited a media firestorm."
Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies premieres on Peacock November 29.
