Murder In The Bayou

A SHOWTIME Documentary Series

The five-part docu-series investigates the unsolved murders of eight women whose bodies were discovered between 2005 and 2009 in drainage canals and on desolate back roads in and around the town of Jennings, Louisiana in rural Jefferson Davis Parish. In examining the lives of the young female victims - and the violent sex and drug trade they were a part of - the series uncovers the secrets of this troubled town lurking just below the surface. These discoveries lead to even more shocking revelations in the "Jeff Davis 8" case, exposing corruption, bad actors and institutional injustices that have left the citizens of Jennings still searching for truth.
