From Hat Tip Films via GVN Releasing, the shocking true story of the arrest and trial of Kermit Gosnell, who ABC News labelled as “America’s most prolific serial killer,” is unveiled when Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer arrives on Digital HD and On Demand January 22, and DVD February 5 from GVN Releasing/Alliance Entertainment. Directed by Nick Searcy (The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Gosnell claimed success with a $3.6 million theatrical run, and already reaching #1 in drama and #4 across all DVD pre-orders on Amazon. The acclaimed film will be available across all digital retailers, including Amazon, VUDU and iTunes, and on DVD at Walmart locations nationwide.
Starring Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, God’s Not Dead) as lead detective James Wood, Gosnell reveals the chilling true events that led to the conviction of one of the most dangerous killers in United States history. After a routine raid while checking into possible illegal prescription drug sales, Wood uncovers a gruesome scene. Wood and District Attorney Alexis “Lexy” McGuire (Sarah Jane Morris, Brothers & Sisters) dig deeper into this landmark murder case, ultimately putting their careers in jeopardy as they embark on a politically charged investigation and trial that became a lightning rod for controversy.
