Pennington Productions Presents: STRANGLEHOLD the Series- "Episode 001"


Shot, edited, animated, directed by Myles David Jewell

EPISODE 001: In the first episode of STRANGLEHOLD: the Series, filmmaker Myles David Jewell and his Uncle John, introduce their role in producing this never seen before material. For the Uncle/Nephew team, Phil DiNatale's untold story needs to be put into the public sphere, and they are acting as conduits to piece together Phil's investigation from the depths of the homemade detective archive that Phil left behind to his family after his death in 1987. With John's investigative expertise, and a filmmaker nephew, the two explain why this web-based series has been produced. But why does the nephew/Uncle team need to tell Phil's story in full?

STRANGLEHOLD "the Series" is a footnote to the feature documentary, STRANGLEHOLD: In the Shadow of the Boston Strangler.

The web series will be released on a monthly basis starting in 2013.

ABOUT: In an investigation, every bit of information makes it into a case file, unlike in storytelling, were select story lines are followed and others left on the cutting room floor. As a result, this web-based series is an attempt to self-produce and self-publish as much of the investigation of Phil DiNatale and his involvement as a lead investigator on the case of the Boston Strangler. Through the form of short videos, and in the vein of an investigation, this series is our families effort to get Detective DiNatale's story into the public sphere. Entirely self-produced and self-distributed, our aim is to tell Phil's side of the investigation as it should be told, in full, while using cold hard documentation.

Synopsis: In the 1960's, filmmaker Myles Jewell's grandfather, Phil DiNatale, worked relentlessly as an investigator on the case of the Boston Strangler. But despite Phil's meticulous investigative efforts, the case got caught in Boston's political cross hairs and was never officially solved. Now, fifty years later, Myles plunges headfirst into his grandfather's immense homemade detective archive to reveal never-before-seen details about the strangler investigation. Part historical film, part personal documentary, and part whodunit, Stranglehold tells the story of a beat cop turned famed detective, Phil DiNatale, and the long-lasting effect his investigative legacy had on his family for generations.
