Peacock recently that Casey Anthony is set to speak out in the upcoming three-part documentary "Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies." Described by the streaming platform as an intimate look at Anthony's life post-trial, the show will feature "Casey’s personal archives, behind the scenes footage and the defense’s evidence for a never-before-seen look into both sides of a story that ignited a media firestorm."
Additionally, in-person interviews with Anthony will address "the infamous investigation, trial and aftermath, speaking to the speculation surrounding her actions at the time, her demeanor in the courtroom and her time spent in prison," according to the press release.
Director Alexandra Dean teased the project in a statement, promising to shine new light on the case that captivated America's attention in 2008.
"Since her acquittal in 2011, public opinion of Casey Anthony has been largely shaped by the media convinced of her guilt," Dean stated, according to the press release. "Casey had never given an in-depth or on-camera interview explaining her actions until now, and as a filmmaker and journalist, my interest was in getting closer to the unbiased truth by hearing all sides of the story – from opposing voices to Casey herself. While having access to Casey was critical, it was even more important that we had complete editorial control over the outcome of the reporting we did. Casey did not see or give notes on the film."
Dean continued, "What emerges over the course of multiple interviews recorded over six months, is a startling psychological portrait of Casey Anthony and a complete narrative of what she says happened to her daughter weighed against multiple sources of potential evidence. I believe the result will surprise many, and cause the American public to look at this story in a new light."
Anthony previously spoke out in a 2017 interview with the Associated Press, in which she said that she's still not sure how her 2-year-old daughter died in 2008. She said that when she last saw Caylee at her parent's home in Orlando, Florida, she "believed she was alive and was going to be OK, and that’s what was told to me."
The 36-year-old said that she understands why the American public despised her for lying to investigators and waiting 31 days to report the toddler, whose skeletal remains were found in December 2008, missing. But she said, “I don’t give a s--t about what anyone thinks about me, I never will... I’m OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night.”
Following Anthony's acquittal in Caylee's death, she served two weeks in a Florida county jail on four misdemeanor charges of lying to police — the sentence was reduced on account of time served and good behavior — and was released on July 7, 2011.
Since her release, she has gone on to live in relative privacy and work for private investigator Patrick Mckenna. She told the AP that she sympathizes with others accused of wrongdoing and wants to help in any way she can.
"I love the fact that I have a unique perspective and I get a chance to do for other people what so many others have done for me," she said.
