Telling Amy’s Story

Watch on the PBS App

Hosted by actress and activist Mariska Hargitay, and told by detective Deirdri Fishel, Telling Amy’s Story follows the timeline of a domestic violence homicide that occurred in central Pennsylvania on Nov. 8, 2001. While we will never be able to change the ending to Amy’s story, we hope that its telling can change outcomes for the millions of victims, survivors, and loved ones affected by domestic violence everyday.

Produced by Penn State Public Broadcasting, Telling Amy’s Story was broadcast on PBS stations nationwide beginning June 1, 2010. Companion materials are available to help you share this film, discuss it with others, and refer those in need to domestic violence resources. Learn more about the project at http://telling.psu.edu.
