Wondery announced the launch of Inside Psycho. It is an original limited podcast series that explores the untold story behind Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie.
Inside Psycho is a six-part audio series that will explore the wild and surprising backstory of one of Hollywood’s most notorious and revered thrillers, “Psycho”. It tells not just the incredible story behind “Psycho”, but also the story of the extraordinary struggles of making a movie that, against all odds, became one of the most iconic films of all times.
“It’s all here, from the real-world serial murders that inspired the film, to the movie star crank calls that gave use the voice of ‘Mother’, to Hitchcock’s relentless efforts to terrify Janet Leigh, to the way the movie re-made Hollywood forever,” said host and creator Mark Ramsey. “We have created a biopic without pictures, a swashbuckling story of fear and loathing, risk and reward, great joy and paralyzing fear – all in a rich, immersive, ground-breaking sound design.”
“Wondery is excited to premiere the audio adventure Inside Psycho,” said Hernan Lopez, founder of Wondery. “The series is not just for movie-buffs, it’s for all artists and entrepreneurs who have chased a dream and experienced the thrilling highs and crushing lows of the creative journey.”
The first two episodes will premiere March 24, 2017, with a special sneak preview available today wherever you listen to podcasts. Inside Psycho joins Wondery as the newest original, alongside the critically acclaimed series Hollywood & Crime, FOUND, Terms, and Secrets, Crimes & Audiotape.
I took the time to give the sneak preview episode a listen – and I highly recommend it! It impressed me so much that I subscribed to the podcast and am really looking forward to hearing the upcoming episodes.
