The fifth season of investigative podcast series Witnessed, titled Fade to Black has launched.
From Campside Media and Sony Music Entertainment, in association with Stowaway Entertainment, the eight-part series focuses on the bizarre story of screenwriter Gary Devore, who disappeared in 1997.
The disappearance has become the source of many conspiracy theories, including that the CIA may have played a role in whatever happened to him.
Witnessed: Fade to Black includes new information about the case that’s never been heard before. The story has many twists as a mystery with cliffhangers in nearly every episode, grounded in rigorous journalism and centred around a compelling cast of Hollywood characters, including Devore’s wife Wendy, who gave total access to her story and archives.
The podcast is hosted by Campside co-founder Josh Dean but was co-created and co-written by the journalist and screenwriter Evan Wright. It was also co-created with lead producer and Emmy-winning journalist Megan Donis.
“Witnessed: Fade to Black offers a mysterious and deep look into the history of the CIA and Hollywood” said co-creator and lead writer Evan Wright. “Listeners will have the opportunity to feel like they’re experiencing the intricate story while getting to know the larger-than-life characters featured throughout the series.”
Fade to Black, the fifth season of the Witnessed franchise, is available on The Binge now, plus all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
