a&e biography: arthur shawcross
In case you’ve been living in a box for half a century, Biography is an American documentary television series and media franchise created in the 1960s by David L. Wolper and owned by A&E Networks since 1987. Each episode depicts the life of a notable person. While freelancing at NBC News Productions, I had the opportunity to cut several episodes of the long running series.
Arthur John Shawcross (June 6, 1945 – November 10, 2008), also known as the Genesee River Killer, was an American serial killer active in Rochester, New York from 1972 through 1989. Editors are pretty tough people, we see a lot of footage that never makes it to the public, and I can say this guy really creeped me out.
