Truth is truly stranger than fiction, and Sundance TV is proving that with the new True Crime Story: Look Into My Eyes. Its plot may sound like it’s from a cheesy Lifetime film, but it’s all based on real events, and this explores what happened. Just what is it about?

In 2011, the small town of North Port, Florida, was rocked by the sudden deaths of three high school students in suspicious circumstances. As parents and the media demanded answers, it developed that all three had been part of a hypnosis study conducted by the school’s beloved principal, Dr. George Kenney.

At first, denying what he did, Kenney did admit to hypnotizing the students to improve their grades, ignoring he was not a licensed therapist. He was placed on leave, and an ugly lawsuit erupted over the events.

This new four-part docuseries will explore just what really happened, if Kenney was truly responsible for the deaths of those students, and who else might have been affected by his actions.
