Cult Justice: Taking Down America’s Most Notorious Cults
Premieres March 28th – all episodes streaming on Hulu

Tens of thousands of Americans have been drawn into the false ideology and promises of modern-day cults. Faith turns to fanaticism. Devotion turns to deviancy. Idealism turns to idolatry.

In this 8-part series, viewers will hear emotional stories from brave survivors who escaped these groups, along with the law enforcement heroes who helped them. Each “Cult Justice” episode tells the unique behind-the-scenes investigative story of how survivors and law enforcement brought these devious and dangerous cult leaders to justice.

The survivor’s stories include tales of riveting escapes and family heartbreak—the daughter who turned her own mother into authorities, the young woman taken as a bride at age 8 by a notorious cult leader, and the mother who desperately tried to rescue her daughter from a militaristic cult.

In addition to the survivors’ tales, each episode also includes interviews with the detectives and prosecutors who opened their investigative files to share fascinating details of these challenging and unique cases, including rarely seen body cam and police videos from inside cult compounds, rare photos and documents, as well as riveting court depositions with the cult leaders themselves.
