Emmy-winning actor Evan Peters, 35, stars in the miniseries, which stars Richard Jenkins and Penelope Ann Miller as parents Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. The cast also includes Niecy Nash, Michael Learned, Khetphet Phagnasay, Karen Malina White, Brayden Maniago, Arye Gross, and Shaun J. Brown.

“The series will largely be told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deep into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to embark on a multi-year murder spree that resulted in the murder and dismemberment of 17 men and boys from 1978-1991, many of them people of color and some minors,” according to the Hollywood Deadline entertainment site.
