Flora Sanchez

The HBO original four-part true crime docuseries “Burden of Proof” will arrive on the pay-TV channel and the Max streaming service June 6.

When 15-year-old Jennifer Pandos went missing in 1987, her parents told everyone she ran away. Decades later, her brother Stephen begins a relentless odyssey in search of the truth. His investigation into the case threatens to destroy his family as he becomes strongly convinced that his parents are both implicated in the crime. As time passes, more threads unravel and new evidence comes to light, Stephen starts to question everything he has come to believe.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Cynthia Hill, the first two episodes will be presented on HBO from 9 to 11 p.m. ET/PT Tuesday, June 6, followed by the final two episodes Wednesday, June 7. The entire series will be available to stream on Max beginning June 6.

Shot in cinema verité over seven years by, the series unfolds in real time as Stephen launches his own investigation into what he fears may have transpired in his parents’ house the night Jennifer vanished and a suspicious handwritten note left as the only clue. Sensitively illustrated with Jennifer’s intimate journal entries and letters, and thoughtfully crafted dramatic visualizations of shifting and conflicting memories from family and friends of the months leading to Jennifer disappearance, the episodic flashbacks paint a portrait of a complex teenager dealing with a troublesome family dynamic. As missing evidence is uncovered, lie detector tests are failed, and past abuses are revealed, a rich, complicated narrative emerges while Stephen is left to wonder the price he has paid by pursuing this painful search for closure.
