We’re going back to the birth of a nation as Jamestown returns for its third series.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile
Friday 3rd May
Zac Efron takes on a much darker role than usual as he plays notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in this chilling biography. Expect several new takes on Bundy, since everything’s told from the perspective of his long-term girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer – someone who, for years, refused to believe the truth about the man she loved. Kloepfer believed her partner was a man who could do no wrong, but in reality, he was a master manipulator with murderous intentions.
