The limited series will retell the story of Dahmer from the attitude of his victims, and explore major mistakes Wisconsin police made in handling the probe of the notorious mass murderer, who made national headlines for acts of cannibalism and necrophilia involving his victims.

The show also features actors Niecy Nash, Penelope Ann Miller, Shaun J. Brown, Colin Ford, and Richard Jenkins, with directors Paris Barclay, Carl Franklin, and Janet Mock. 

Miller and Jenkins will play the roles of Dahmer’s parents, while Nash will portray Dahmer’s neighbor Glenda Cleveland, who tried in vain to report his bizarre behavior to authorities.

Peters has past worked with Murphy on various projects, including nine of 10 seasons of American Horror Story, in addition to the series Pose.

Peters in April told Variety concerning the painstaking task he had taken of researching Dahmer in depth for the role.

‘I’ve read a lot, I’ve watched a lot, I’ve seen a lot, and at a certain point, you have to say, “All right, that is enough,”‘ he said. ‘There are beautifully written scripts. You may have all of the backstory you would like, but at the tip of the day we’re not making a documentary.

‘It’s more about maintaining the thought and the through line of why you are telling the story and all the time having that as your guiding light.’

Dahmer in 1992 was convicted of 16 murders he’d been charged with, and sentenced to 16 life sentences in prison. He was bludgeoned to death with a metal bar in November of 1994 by Christopher Scarver, one other inmate on the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
