Buster Murdaugh to be on new series about SC murders of mother and brother. When and how to watch

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A new docuseries will feature Buster Murdaugh in his first interview since his father, Alex Murdaugh, was sent to prison for murdering his mother and brother.

The case against Alex Murdaugh for killing his wife, Maggie, and son, Paul, has been the subject of many television series, but through it all, Buster has kept silent. He did testify for his father during the trial earlier this year.

Jurors convicted Alex Murdaugh swiftly.

Murdaugh is being held in an undisclosed prison in South Carolina and is appealing the conviction.

The new series, to air on streaming service Fox Nation on Sept. 12, promises a behind-the scenes look at the case from the defense side with exclusive video before and during the trial and interviews with defense attorneys Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin.

“Through a firsthand account from Buster Murdaugh and access to key players, including friends and family, this series puts forward several missing elements that have not been brought to light,” Fox Nation President Jason Klarman said in a news release.

He did not say what the missing elements are and a spokesperson declined to say more about what specifically Buster Murdaugh says or the topics discussed.

The host of “The Fall of the House of Murdaugh” Martha MacCallum said no subjects were off limits in her interview with Buster Murdaugh.

“It is an explosive interview. Stay tuned,” she said in a statement.

Fox Nation covered the trial extensively, she said.

“Like everyone else who watched it closely, you had to wonder what was going on in Buster Murdaugh’s mind and heart, mourning the brutal murders of his mother, Maggie and his little brother, Paul, and watching his father stand trial, charged in their deaths. His father convicted in their murders,” she said.

The news release said the series will include “never-before-seen home movies, as well as intimate prison revelations from Alex himself.”

Also interviewed were lead prosecutor Creighton Waters, Attorney General Alan Wilson, Colleton County Clerk Rebecca Hill, local attorney Joe McCulloch, Maurdaugh’s dog kennel manager Roger Dale Davis Jr., Walterboro Mayor William T. Young Jr., and the prosecution’s forensic expert Kenneth Kinsey.

The dog kennel manager factored into the story because Bubba, one of the Murdaugh’s hunting dogs, was videotaped by Paul Murdaugh minutes before he died and Alex Murdaugh’s voice can be heard in the background.

It was a key piece of evidence in the trial, putting Murdaugh in the location of the murders when he said he wasn’t there.

Kinsey, too, was a key witness, who mapped out the crime scene and explained the complicated forensics in a folksy manner. He was a deputy with the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office and has a private investigation business.

Paul and Maggie Murdaugh were murdered on June 7, 2021, on the family 1,700-acre hunting estate known as Moselle in Isleton. Alex Murdaugh was a prominent attorney from a long line of prominent attorneys in Walterboro until the murders when investigators began looking into his finances and other deaths that have occurred in the Murdaugh orbit.

He faces dozens of charges alleging he stole millions from clients’ insurance settlements.
