This is going to be the true crime series everyone is talking about. It begins as a documentary covering one family's search for their missing daughter, Christina Whittaker. But as my guest, director, Christina Fontana, will tell you: it turns into a whole lot more. Lies, secrets, and too many WTF moments to count.
Christina has been covering this story for over a decade, and she shares how she approached making the film - especially when the story took a real turn, her thoughts on sensitivity in telling true crime stories - hint: kindness matters, and what the status of Christina's story is today.
