New Trailer For Netflix's WORMWOOD Series Which Tells The Untold True Story of The CIA

Netflix has revealed an intense new trailer for their new series Wormwood, and it looks really freakin' good! This is a documentary series that stars Peter Sarsgaard and it tells the untold true story of the CIA. What does that entail? A history of LSD experiments, mind control, and the death of a family man are just a few of the elements involved in a massive cover-up.

The fascinating six-part series comes from director Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) and it follows the true story of Eric Olsen’s journey to uncover the truth about his father’s death. The telling of this story combines narrative scenes, archival footage, and interviews. These kinds of stories have always intrigued me, so I'm really looking forward to watching this!

Wormwood explores the limits of knowledge about the past and the lengths we’ll go in our search for the truth. A twisting, evolving story of one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death. Combining a virtuosic performance by Sarsgaard with Morris’ legendary interview style, Wormwood examines this case from every possible angle, bringing the viewer face-to-face with some of the United States’ darkest secrets.

The series also stars Molly Parker, Christian Camargo, Scott Shepherd, Tim Blake Nelson, Jimmi Simpson, Bob Balaban, and Michael Chernus.

Wormwood is set to debut on Netflix December 15th.
