We proceed, thus, from “a city on its knees in a country that was losing its mind” to one largely revived. This recovery had occurred, according to the filmmakers, thanks to...

Forbes celebrates Empires of New York

Forbes Entertainment can exclusively reveal the official trailer for the docuseries, which explores the almost inconceivable excess and avarice of the 1980s, as seen through the meteoric careers of five key people: “arbitrage king” of Wall Street Ivan Boesky; queen of New York real estate Leona Helmsley; audacious U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani; powerful organized crime boss John Gotti; and, of course, the media-savvy business tycoon Donald J. Trump. All of them would eventually fall from grace and...oh yeah, one even became President of the United States.

Just when you think you can't possibly deal with another big-ticket true-crime documentary series, along comes something else to get you sucked back in.

Murder In The Bayou Review Roundup

A variety of outlets reviewed Fairhaven’s new Showtime series, praising Galkin's filmmaking and investigative storytelling.

From The Hollywood Reporter: “Galkin's access is tremendous and his interview subjects are seemingly candid to the point of excess.”

From Bustle: "If there's one thing to be taken away from the show, Brown hopes it's that people realize the story "doesn't just end with more people going to jail." It ends with a renewed focus on resources for mental health and drug misuse that communities like Jennings desperately need.”

From The Daily Beast: “Murder in the Bayou comes across not as a retread but, instead, as another stark example of the elusiveness of justice in a world riddled with vice, immorality, inequality and incompetence. With striking aesthetics that augment its keen investigative storytelling, it’s a defiant plea against indifference.
