The Radical Story of Patty Hearst   

Synopsis

The Radical Story of Patty Hearst is a six-part series that follows the transformation of Patty Hearst from heiress to terrorist in a saga of privilege, celebrity, politics, media, revolution and violence.

Over 40 years later, newly discovered evidence, archival footage, cinematic recreations and exclusive first-hand accounts shed light on one of the biggest and most bizarre stories in modern American history.

The Radical Story of Patty Hearst includes unprecedented access to key figures in the story including Bill Harris, the man that abducted Hearst from her apartment in 1974, and Steven Weed, the fiancé who witnessed it all. The series weaves through her upbringing, kidnapping, transformation into a terrorist, subsequent arrest and trial and her transition back into American royalty. 

Best-selling author and Emmy® Award-winning producer Jeffrey Toobin (American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) serves as one of the executive producers.

Press Reviews:
