On July 11th, Betrayal: The Perfect Husband premieres on Hulu and is based on a podcast of the same name. The docuseries covers the events surrounding reality television producer Jenifer Faison after she learned her husband Spencer Herron was sexually assaulting his high school students.

Next on the list is Mother Undercover, a four-part docuseries featuring mothers who protect or get justice for their children by conducting their own undercover tactics. Each episode showcases a different mother whose child was the victim of murder, international kidnapping, mass suicide, and judicial corruption. “The series showcases the strength and resilience of these women who give new meaning to the saying ‘A mother’s love knows no bounds’.”
And lastly, the three-part series Demons and Saviors will premiere on August 3rd. This docuseries explores the case of Christina Boyer, nicknamed “poltergeist girl” due to her alleged telekinetic abilities. In 1992, she was convicted of murdering her three-year-old daughter.
