Heavy metal music and a rash of serial killings collide in the extended teaser for new true crime series “Wicked City”.
ABC’s anthology drama from “Get on Up” writer Steven Baigelman dramatises the sleazy world of Hollywood in the 1980s, reported Digital Spy.
A time when heavy metal music exploded onto the Sunset Strip, a Bonnie and Clyde-style serial killer team were terrorising young women in the world of Wicked City.
While “Wicked City” is inspired by real cases of the time, its story of two besotted murders (Ed Westwick and Erika Christensen) is fictional in nature.
Baigelman’s series examines the killings from the perspectives of the police, journalists and the murderers themselves to create a complex and hard-hitting tale of violence.
Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under), Gabriel Luna (Matador) and Evan Ross (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) also star in the thriller.
“Wicked City” premieres on October 27 in the US on ABC.
