A documentary series premiering this month examines a story that became one of the biggest media events of the 1970s: the kidnapping and apparent radicalization of heiress Patricia Hearst.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin interviewed Jeffrey Toobin, who wrote the 2016 book “American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst” and is one of the executive producers of the new CNN series, “The Radical Story of Patty Hearst.”

The series premiered Sunday, Feb. 11, on CNN and continues over the next two weeks. Click here to take an in-depth look at the project and read the insights of Toobin into the complex saga.
