Many of the people interviewed for the series have never spoken about the crash or the double homicide of Maggie and Paul until now, including Paul Murdaugh’s longtime girlfriend, Morgan Doughty; Mallory Beach’s childhood friends, Miley Altman and Connor Cook; Mallory’s boyfriend, Anthony Cook; and several others.
The series is directed by Julia Willoughby Nason and Jenner Furst, known for their work on LuLa Rich and The Pharmacist. It is executive produced by Michael Gasparro, Julia Willoughby Nason, and Jenner Furst. The Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal is set to release on February 22, 2023.
The Murdaughs was a powerful and well-known family in South Carolina, but their legacy was forever tarnished by the tragic death of teenager Mallory Beach in a drunken boating accident. The incident not only claimed the life of a young girl but also sparked a chain of events that would lead to the brutal murders of Paul Murdaugh – the alleged driver of the boat – and his mother Maggie.
