Judge Jeanine Pirro to Front ‘The Menendez Brothers: Monsters or Misunderstood?’ Roundtable

FOX Nation will release an exclusive four-part docuseries entitled “Menendez Brothers: Victims or Villains” on Monday, March 25th, announced Lauren Petterson, its president. The series will feature never-before-heard and exclusive sound from Lyle Menendez from prison, along with interviews with the Menendez brothers’ lawyer Mark Geragos, and the prosecutor on the case Pamela Bozanich. Additional contributions are made throughout from comedian and actress Rosie O’Donnell, who conducted a 2023 interview with Lyle Menendez from prison, radio personality Adam Carolla and former Saturday Night Live cast member Darrell Hammond, who has advocated for the pair’s release from prison.

In conjunction with the series, The Five co-host Judge Jeanine Pirro, former Westchester County District Attorney and the first woman to prosecute murder cases there, will host key discussions breaking down the Menendez case with crucial figures on both sides of the trial. Pirro will present a sit-down interview with Geragos to discuss the defense attorney’s fight to overturn the life convictions and whether a letter outlining allegations of abuse could bolster the brothers' self-defense claim. Separately, Pirro will moderate a panel including the supervising detective on the case, Thomas Edmonds, who will outline why he believes the killings were in cold blood and the convictions should stand. Additional panelists will include FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett and psychologist Caryn Stark.

In making the announcement, Petterson said, “This docuseries explores one of the most high-profile explosive murder cases of our time. As new evidence has been uncovered over the years, we are thrilled to add this captivating true crime series to FOX Nation’s library.”

In August 1989 brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez shot and killed their parents, José and Kitty Menendez in Beverly Hills for what was believed at the time to be an opportunity to obtain their $14 million dollar inheritance. In 1996, the brothers were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole. However, Lyle and Erik’s attorneys argued they killed their parents out of self-defense and claimed they faced years of emotional and physical abuse.

Now, after two trials, a massive cultural reckoning and the emergence of new evidence, the notorious crime story is reexamined in this special with the voices closest to the case. Developed and produced for FOX Nation, Pilgrim Media Group and Los Angeles Magazine Studios, the series was executive produced by Craig Piligian, Nicole Rittenmeyer, Scott Eldridge, Nicholas Caprio, Shane Farley, Chris Hannan and Adam Carolla.
