Murder in the Heartland is a television miniseries aired on ABC in 1993. It was based on the 1957 murder spree carried out by 19 year-old Charles Starkweather throughout Nebraska and Wyoming. The first half of the miniseries covers the murders. The second half covers the trials of Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate, his 14 year-old girlfriend accomplice. Their increasingly disparate versions of events are contrasted as the trials unfold.
The film received strong praise from critics and multiple Emmy nominations.
Murder in the Heartland shares its inspiration from the Starkweather story with both Terrence Malick's 1973 film Badlands and the title song from Bruce Springsteen's 1982 album Nebraska.
The entire film was shot on location in and around McKinney and Dallas, Texas.
Brian Dennehy was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Special. Ronald Victor Garcia was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Cinematography.
