Academy Award-nominated film producer Marc Smerling directed “A Wilderness of Error,” a five-part docuseries that is based on Errol Morris’ book of the same name. The first three episodes of the series were released by FX on September 25, 2020, and the final two are scheduled to release on October 2. In only watching the first three hours of the program, I finally understand why Morris is so captivated by the case — it’s not as cut and dry as the media initially portrayed.
FX: A Wilderness of Error will broadcast a docuseries of a former Doctor’s, Jeffrey MacDonald, criminal case that occurred more than 50 years ago. The docuseries will reveal if McDonald was indeed innocent.
