Sundance Now announced today the premiere date for the Australian true-crime docuseries Trial in the Outback: The Lindy Chamberlain Story.
“The dingo took my baby!”
That line was made famous by Meryl Streep in the film A Cry in the Dark (aka Evil Angels in Australia and New Zealand), in which she played Lindy Chamberlain, the Australian woman who made headlines after claiming a dingo killed her 9-week-old baby, Azaria, in the Australian Outback in 1980. With little evidence, Lindy was convicted of murder, and she spent the next 30 years trying to prove her innocence.
Four decades later, Lindy’s fascinating and shocking story is told in the docuseries Trial in the Outback: The Lindy Chamberlain Story, which will premiere in the US and Canada as a binge release, with all three episodes being available on Tuesday, October 12, exclusively on Sundance Now and AMC+.
Trial in the Outback: The Lindy Chamberlain Story explores the case that has figured in Australia’s collective conscious since 1980, when a dingo took Lindy Chamberlain’s defenseless baby in a random horrific attack. But it quickly turned into more than that, resulting in the trial of the century and Australia’s most notorious miscarriage of justice. Through exclusive interviews with Lindy, her children, and eyewitnesses today, along with archival footage and broadcasts and — for the first time — access to Lindy’s personal archive of family stills, movies, audio recordings and letters, this revelatory docuseries tells a compelling, universal story that still resonates today.
A production of Empress Road and Easy Tiger Productions, Trial in the Outback: The Lindy Chamberlain Story is directed by Mark Joffe (Jack Irish), written by Francine Finnane (Vietnam), and narrated by Sam Neill (Hunt for the Wilderpeople).
