"The Road to Jonestown" from executive producers Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson of Appian Way, as well as author Jeff Guinn, and Stephen David of Stephen David Entertainment ("The Men Who Built America," "Making of the Mob"), is based on the best-selling book by investigative journalist Jeff Guinn. Phillip Watson, Michael Hampton and Stephen David helped to shepherd the project. The story will air this year on SundanceTV in conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of the Jonestown massacre that claimed the lives of more than 900 people. The series will paint a picture of Jim Jones' transformation from charismatic preacher and champion of civil rights into egomaniacal demagogue who led the biggest mass suicide in American history. Never-before-seen archival footage - including secret FBI and CIA recordings, unreleased photographs, personal letters and previously classified documents - as well as new interviews with survivors and Jones family members who have not previously spoken on the record, will attempt to answer the questions how? and why?
