NEW YORK, NY - October 25, 2017 - For the first time in over a decade, Erik Menendez opens up with his most in-depth interview to date in "The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All," a new documentary series that re-examines one of the most fascinating true crime tragedies of the past century through the lens of one of the convicted killers. This riveting series includes extensive phone interviews with Erik as well as rare emotional footage, never-before-seen photos and new interviews with prosecutors, law enforcement, close family, friends and medical experts that chronicle the story you thought you knew. "The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All" premieres on A&E starting Thursday, November 30 at 10:00 pm ET/PT.

"My only hope in speaking out is that people may have a more complete understanding. A more complete understanding of the events that led up to my actions on the night of August 20th, and really a fuller picture of what really happened in my life. All I can hope for is that people will come to realize that the truth is not a simple, one-line explanation that many people have tried to make it out to be. That really, that my life was this unfolding of a complicated life that I lived had all of these things that came into being and that led up to my involvement and responsibility for what is an ongoing and enduring family tragedy. The tragedy didn't end on that night, as devastating as that night was. It didn't end there for my family, and it continues on to this day, and that sadness is something that I am trying to make up for with them and with my parents for the rest of my life. It will never end," said Erik Menendez from prison on the timing of this interview.

"Through unparalleled personal access to Erik Menendez, this series takes a deeper look inside a case that stunned the nation," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, A&E Network. "'The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All' is a prime example of how A&E continues to be the home to timely and provocative true crime programming that captivates viewers."

Erik Menendez recounts the horrible torment of his tortured past, the brutal murder that he and his older brother Lyle committed and the dizzying series of events that led them to conceal and later confess to their roles in the killing of their parents. After two trials and three juries, Erik and Lyle Menendez were convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. This eye-opening series features new interviews with former Los Angeles District Attorney Christopher Darden, news icon Larry King, Erik's wife Tammi Menendez and Associated Press trial reporter Linda Deutsch, among many others, who provide their personal points of view to help unveil the real story behind the notorious case.

"The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All" is produced for A&E Network by MEgTV. Executive producers are Nancy Saslow and Eamon Harrington. Executive producers for A&E are Elaine Frontain Bryant, Amy Savitsky and Evan Lerner.
