“Prophet’s Prey”
Premieres Saturday, October 10 at 9 PM ET/PT on Showtime

 
          Under the SHOWTIME DOCUMENTARY FILMS banner, PROPHET’S PREY is a look inside the world and mind of Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), one of the largest cults currently operating in the United States. 

          Though he was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list and, eventually, captured and sentenced to life in prison, Jeffs continues to prey on the FLDS community in absentia, his power largely unchecked and unchallenged to this very day.

 
          An official selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, PROPHET’S PREY is written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil, West of Memphis) who also serves as a producer.  The film is based on the book by Sam Brower, Prophet's Prey: My Seven-Year Investigation into Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Latter-Day Saints.

          Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Dustin Lance Black, Shannon Costello, Anna Culp, Geralyn Dreyfous, Erica Huggins, Jon Krakauer and Regina Scully also serve as executive producers.  Brower and Katherine LeBlond also serve as the documentary’s producers.
