DESCRIPTION: (from Investigation Discovery's press release, April 2013) In this special companion television series to Werner Herzog's critically-acclaimed theatrical documentary INTO THE ABYSS, the Academy-Award nominated filmmaker dives deeper into the abyss of the human soul. Through interviews with five additional inmates awaiting their appointment with a lethal injection in the Texas and Florida prison systems, Herzog conducts a uniquely thought-provoking analysis of why people, and the state, kill. Each episode features an intense interview with a death row inmate to hear their own account of life in captivity and the crime that condemned them.
