Propagate-owned Electus and Lady Moon Entertainment will produce a docuseries based on Emmy-nominated investigative journalist Michele McPhee’s book Maximum Harm, which details the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon in April 2013.

Academy-award winning director Charles Ferguson and his partner, Sundance award-winner Shimon Dotan, have teamed with McPhee to bring her 2017 non-fiction work to life.

In her book, McPhee delves into the complex story behind the Boston Marathon bombing. She looks at the role the FBI and CIA played in the events leading up to the bombing; as well as issues around immigration, integration, and radicalization in the Tsarnaev family, whose sons Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar, were responsible for the terrorist attacks which left three people dead. 

Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, and Jonathan Schaerf serve as executive producers alongside Bryan O’Connell of Lady Moon Entertainment. McPhee and Max Levenson will also serve as executive producers of the docuseries.
