Six months after being convicted of killing his wife and son, Alex Murdaugh is getting the Lifetime movie treatment on Murdaugh Murders, and Bill Pullman is taking the lead.

EW has an exclusive first look at Murdaugh Murders: The Movie, starring Bill Pullman as the 54-year-old attorney from South Carolina, who is currently serving two consecutive life sentences. Murdaugh was arrested in September of 2021, three months after his wife, Margaret, and son, Paul, were found dead on the family’s property.

MurdaughMurders, which is Lifetime’s 500th original movie, is a two-part film that chronicles the grim series of events that led Alex to murder Margaret (played by Lauren Robek) and Paul (Curtis Tweedie).

Synopsis PART 1 and PART 2

Murdaugh Murders: The Movie follows the twisted true story of Alex Murdaugh played by award-winning actor Bill Pullman, who was found guilty in the double homicide of his wife, Maggie and his son, Paul. For over 100 years, the wealthy and powerful Murdaugh Family were a local dynasty in the South Carolina low country, where they oversaw the prosecution of all criminal cases in the state’s 14th circuit district. But behind all the power, black ties, and fancy dresses Alex had many secrets… Even with all of Alex’s influence, he couldn’t prevent The Murdaugh Family’s legacy from being tarnished after Paul was involved in a boating accident that left a young girl dead.

While Maggie was consumed with what was happening with Paul, Alex was hiding his addiction to opioids and stealing insurance settlements from his own clients to fund his habit and the family’s lavish lifestyle. Then in June 2021, Maggie and Paul were found murdered and eyes began to turn to Alex. The bizarre story continued when Alex was nearly shot in the head and his indiscretions and lies began to surface, leading to the eventual unraveling of Alex Murdaugh’s once charmed life.

The twisted true story of Alex Murdaugh (Bill Pullman), who was found guilty in the double homicide of his wife, Maggie and his son, Paul.

Quinten James talks with us about his experience in the miniseries

This was a really special project for me! It was my first time playing a character that is a real person, so it was fun to study any footage I could find to get my voice and accent as real-life as possible. The whole cast was great to work with, but a highlight was acting across from Bill Pullman, he was definitely an inspiration for me moving forward on being a team player on set, as well as taking my craft to the next level.
