The first three episodes of the series cover what readers of Stewart’s best-selling 2014 book already know: Stewart, adopted as an infant, is convinced his father, Earl Van Best Jr., is the Zodiac Killer.

The Zodiac Killer is the self-given pseudonym of an unidentified person responsible for several murders in California in the 1960s and 1970s.

Stewart was 39 when he was first contacted by his birth mother, Jude Gilford, in 2002. Stewart asks about his father and frustrated at his mother’s evasiveness, decides to investigate on his own.
