TALES OF THE GRIM SLEEPER
We worked with Shear Entertainment to manage publicity around the UK theatrical release campaign of Nick Broomfield’s critically acclaimed documentary Tales of the Grim Sleeper, which digs into the case of the notorious serial killer known as the Grim Sleeper, who terrorised South Central Los Angeles over a span of twenty-five years.
The documentary tells the story of a long search for a Los Angeles serial killer. Lonnie Franklin Jr was arrested in July 2010 after a 25 year killing spree in which it is thought he could have killed over 100 victims, potentially making him the most prolific serial killer in history. Significantly, his arrest was not the product of painstaking detective work but completely accidental, the result of a computer DNA match that linked him to a possible 20 victims. Franklin now awaits trial. Tales of the Grim Sleeper investigates how and why it was possible for this to happen.
We managed press screenings, reviews, interviews, news coverage and digital assets, securing quality coverage with media outlets including Sky Arts, The Times, Daily Telegraph, The Independent Magazine, The Guardian Guide, The Observer, London Evening Standard, Huck Magazine, Vice.com, The Huffington Post, Cent Magazine, The Glass Magazine, Candid Magazine, Aesthetica Magazine, Complex Magazine, Little White Lies, The Bristol Post, and more.
