Co-created by Murphy and Ian Brennan, the show will chronicle the story of Dahmer, one of America’s most notorious serial killers, generally told according to the view of his victims.

It will dramatise at least 10 instances where Dahmer was practically apprehended in any case let go, while likewise addressing his white privilege.
As a neat and tidy, gorgeous white person, Dahmer was consistently given a free pass by cops just as by judges who were tolerant when he had been accused of petty crimes.

Additionally joining the cast is entertainer Niecy Nash as the female lead, Glenda Cleveland.
A neighbour of Dahmer, Cleveland had alerted police and the FBI of his suspicious behaviour, however they didn’t tune in. Entertainer Penelope Ann Miller has been cast in the role of Dahmer’s mom, Joyce.
