Alexa Danner is one of the executive producers and showrunner of John Wayne Gacy: Devil In Disguise docuseries on Peacock.
Most remember John Wayne Gacy as the “Killer Clown” from the 1970s. Gacy was charged with 33 murders for which 26 bodies were found buried in his house. It was a big shock as Gacy was active in his community. In 1994 he was executed by lethal injection. However, he left to wonder how many lives he really took and who else may have participated in these gruesome acts.
From NBC News Studios and Rod Blackhurst (Witchcraft Motion Picture Company), the Emmy-nominated producer of “Amanda Knox,” JOHN WAYNE GACY: DEVIL IN DISGUISE is a comprehensive deep dive into the riveting case. The series follows the investigation of serial killer John Wayne Gacy and poses new questions about what may have happened and who else may have been involved. The docuseries will highlight a multi-hour interview with Gacy himself from prison, only minutes of which have ever been seen, as well as exclusive audio and video interviews, including with one of his closest confidantes and his second ex-wife.
