National Geographic Greenlights True-Crime Doc ‘Pathological: Chasing A True-Crime Con Man’

National Geographic is developing a true-crime doc about conman Stéphane Bourgoin titled Pathological: Chasing A True-Crime Con Man.

The three-part series comes from filmmaker Ben Selkow and is based on the New Yorker’s 2022 piece on Bourgoin from journalist Lauren Collins.

The doc follows the rise and fall of bestselling French author and serial killer expert Bourgoin, whose career was built on a foundation of lies. The series takes viewers through the dramatic twists and turns of Bourgoin’s life in front of and behind the camera and tracks his pursuit by a group of true-crime enthusiasts, whose passion for the genre turned them into amateur sleuths and seekers of truth.

It is produced by The New Yorker Studios and The Circus producer Left/Right.

Selkow directs and exec produces alongside Helen Estabrook, Sarah Amos, Lexy Altman, Lauren Collins, Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Anneka Jones and Betsy Forhan.
