Netflix has announced a new four-part documentary series, D.B. Cooper: Where Are You?!, about the infamous American criminal. Produced by Fulwell 73 Productions and PMZ Pictures, the series will premiere on the streaming service on July 13.
Directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Marina Zenovich (The Way Down), the docuseries examines the 50-year quest to find the mysterious man who hijacked a Northwest Airlines passenger jet in November 1971 and parachuted out of the plane with $200,000, never to be seen again. The series includes interviews with investigators who worked on the case and focuses in particular on the 10-year effort by one of them, Tom Colbert, to prove that he has found Cooper.
D.B. Cooper: Where Are You?! is a coproduction between Fulwell 73 Productions and PMZ Pictures. Leo Pearlman and Sheldon Lazarus are the executive producers for Fulwell 73, while P.G. Morgan and Zenovich serve as EPs for PMZ Pictures.
The series marks Fulwell’s first foray into the true-crime genre. Recent Fulwell productions include the CBS special Adele One Night Only, Hulu’s The Kardashians, NatGeo’s NASA doc Among the Stars and Apple TV+’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series.
It’s also the latest series to take a crack at the D.B. Cooper mystery, following up such projects as D.B Cooper: Case Closed? from Anvil 1893, which aired on History in 2016, and The Final Hunt for D.B. Cooper, from Lost Arts Pictures and 3BMG, which aired as part of that network’s ‘History’s Greatest Mysteries’ strand in 2020.
