The series runs for six weeks and will dive deep into one of those missing persons’ stories, following the trail of 29-year-old Garret Rodriguez who went missing on Murder Mountain in 2013. His disappearance, and the events surrounding the investigation into his whereabouts threaten to expose a wild, lawless place, and will forever change the local community.
“What starts as a story about missing persons quickly becomes a riveting tale about murder and vigilante justice,” said Erin McQuade, SVP of Programming for FUSION TV. Murder Mountain takes you deep inside an outlaw culture that feels like it’s from another time, but it’s very real and it’s happening today. The series pulls back the curtain on a secret world few of us know anything about.”
Viewers will get an up close and personal look at a cast of isolationists, outlaws, vigilantes and other characters they won’t soon forget. They’ll also get an exclusive look at Humboldt’s marijuana farms, both legal and illegal, and a glimpse into what it takes for an outlaw farmer to cross over to the legal market.
Executive Producers for FUSION TV include Keith Summa, George Lansbury, Daniel Eilemberg, Camila Jimenez Villa and Raphael Rodriguez.
