  • Acclaimed writer, director, and producer Tiller Russell creates character-driven films that defy genre and explore the human condition in riveting, complex, and unexpected stories.
  • Having established himself as one of the top documentary filmmakers, his  latest three-part doc series Waco: American Apocalypse premiered at #1 on Netflix and remained in the Top 10 for 2 weeks. Prior to that, his four-part doc series, Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer, was a Top 10 hit on Netflix and received critical acclaim.
  • Silk Road, the larger-than-life thriller that Tiller wrote and directed about the illegal Dark Net website and its 29-year-old kingpin creator Ross Ulbrich, was acquired by Lionsgate in late 2020 for theatrical and VOD distribution. The film is based on the Rolling Stone article “Dead End On Silk Road” and stars Jason Clark, Nick Robinson, Paul Walter Hauser, and Alexandra Shipp.
  • Tiller’s previous documentary series, The Last Narc, details the infamous 1985 cartel murder of DEA agent ‘Kiki’ Camarena and is now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime.
