An Inside Look at Sensational Stephen King Series The Outsider
Here's why I prefer to buy complete seasons of my favorite series- I don't have to watch heart-stopping action at night when it's dark. That's about as real as it gets. Watching those creepy moments that tend to linger with you long after the episode has ended is too much for me to handle. We're talking about the stuff that Stephen-King-style nightmares are made of, honestly!
"The gruesome murder of an 11-year-old boy in the Georgia woods leads a local detective into a disturbing search for the truth in Season 1 of this drama series based on Stephen King's bestselling novel. When an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads a seasoned cop (Ben Mendelsohn) and an unorthodox investigator (Cynthia Erivo) to question everything they believe in. The stellar supporting cast includes Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vazquez, Jeremy Bobb, Marc Menchaca and Jason Bateman."
Featuring all 10 thrilling episodes of the debut season, The Outsider: The Complete First Season takes you through more than 40 minutes of behind-the-scenes bonus content including the all-new featurette “EL CUCO. THE BABA YAGA. THE OUTSIDER.” This never-before-seen featurette takes you deep into the real-world origins and supernatural abilities of the figure looming in the midst of The Outsider with in-depth insights from the series creators and cast.
"Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Outsider is a new drama series that follows a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy. When 11-year-old Frankie Peterson’s body is found mutilated in the Georgia woods, police detective Ralph Anderson sets out to investigate – with eyewitnesses and physical evidence pointing to Terry Maitland, a popular high school teacher, Little League coach, doting husband and father. While the case appears ironclad, Ralph is baffled by the emergence of contradictory evidence that places his suspect in a neighboring city at the time of the murder. The mysterious set of circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, a seasoned cop still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney, whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable."
