‘Final Vision’ stars debate Jeffrey MacDonald’s guilt or innocence

It’s the longest-running criminal case in U.S. history, which is why, more than 30 years after the classic miniseries Fatal Vision aired on NBC, Investigation Discovery is taking another look at the Jeffrey MacDonald murder saga with the new film Final Vision.

Starring Scandal’s Scott Foley as MacDonald, the Green Beret and Ivy league-educated doctor who was convicted of the 1970 murder of his pregnant wife and their two daughters, and Brothers Sisters alum Dave Annable as Joe McGinniss, the bestselling author MacDonald sought out to help prove his innocence, Final Vision takes another look at MacDonald’s murder trial and the relationship between the men.
