When the documentary was first announced, Theroux said: “I spent eight or nine days filming at the park back in 2011, over the course of three separate visits.
“I’d forgotten how much we shot until I went back into the footage during lockdown. It’s extraordinary how much was there.
“Since then the story just got stranger and bigger, and in going back at the end of last year I uncovered a real-life drama that took me in directions I never could have expected.”
