[edit] Information

From producers of ABC News' '20/20,' a new Hulu Original documents the chilling 1970s-80s era of rampant serial killers in Los Angeles. 'City of Angels | City of Death' features first-hand accounts from the detectives who tracked down the Freeway Killer, Hillside Strangler and Sunset Strip Killer bringing justice for the victims and survivors. In the late 1970s, the Los Angeles area would be besieged by a surge in murder cases and at times, before one case could even be processed, another corpse would be found. Some victims were just dumped in more off the beaten path spots, while others were dropped right in people's yards, which horrified an already shaken community. Women would refuse to travel alone, even just to school or work, as patterns of targeting them had become obvious. This rash of brutal killings would last years and was not the work of a serial killer, but instead, the sick actions of multiple serial killers, all stalking Los Angeles at the same time. In City of Angels, City of Death, we are taken inside this horrific series of murders and shown how detectives managed these high profile cases. Throughout the 1970s and '80s, more than 20 serial killers stalked the streets of Los Angeles simultaneously and within miles of each other, murdering and terrorizing citizens — until the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division banded together and tracked down the killers. From producers of ABC News' "20/20," the new Hulu Original "City of Angels | City of Death" chronicles the group of LAPD detectives and their investigations, from launching stakeouts to tracking and catching some of that era's most notorious murderers, including the Freeway Killer, the Hillside Strangler, the Sunset Strip Killer and more. "City of Angels | City of Death" depicts the chilling details of the gruesome crimes through dramatic recreations and the first-hand accounts of law enforcement as they masterfully juggled multiple serial killer investigations before the introduction of DNA technology and under the pressure of unprecedented media attention. The detectives' discoveries changed the way authorities catch killers, revolutionizing modern methods. "City of Angels | City of Death" includes interviews with retired LAPD detectives Tom Lange, Robert Souza, Bob Grogan, Frank Garcia and Jerry LeFrois; survivors; forensic experts; eyewitnesses and more. Directed and Produced by Star Price ; Produced for Hulu by ABC News Studios and Highway 41 Productions
