Shadowland

In Shadowland award-winning director Joe Berlinger sends documentary teams across America to embed with subjects who have rejected mainstream narratives. These include the shocking real-time stories of a beloved rural Pennsylvania pizza shop owner facing twenty years in prison for her role in the January 6th riots, an anti-vaccine activist pushing a risky fake cure for Covid-19, and a mother divorcing her husband because she fears his blight.

From this close vantage point, the six-part documentary series Shadowland explores how people form their beliefs and what makes conspiracy theories so alluring. It also reveals how conspiracy theories have gone from the fringes to the mainstream. In a time when families, friendships, and the country as a whole are becoming more and more shattered, the series serves as a shocking wake-up call about the perilous impact of conspiracy theory on the operation of our democracy.

Airdate: Wednesday September 21, 2022 on Peacock.
