In honor of the release of the West Memphis Three, HBO will be re-airing the groundbreaking documentaries that really kicked the effort to win their freedom into high gear.

“Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills,” the 1996 doc on the case by Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger, is scheduled to air Monday, August 29 at 7 p.m. The 2000 follow-up, “Paradise Lost: Revelations,” will air the following night at 7 45 p.m.


Sinofsky and Berlinger have a third installment of the series in the works, titled “Paradise Lost: Purgatory,” which is scheduled to debut on HBO in January (it was apparently almost finished when a call to get to Jonesboro last week threw a welcome monkey wrench in their plans). Might we suggest another title? “Resurrection” has a nice ring to it.
