WORLD PREMIERE Based on the best-selling book by investigative journalist Jeff Guinn, The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and Peoples Temple, and timed to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Jonestown massacre, this new series from SundanceTV chronicles the rise of Jim Jones, a charismatic preacher turned manipulative cult leader who ordered the deaths of his own followers.
