They Called Him Mostly Harmless
January 25, 2024
The Max Original documentary They Called Him Mostly Harmless from Investigation Discovery, directed and executive produced by Emmy-winner Patricia E. Gillespie (“The Fire That Took Her”) and produced by Anchor Entertainment, debuts Feb. 8 on Max.
When an unidentified hiker is found deceased in the Florida wilderness, authorities release a sketch. Multiple hikers call in claiming to have met the man. There’s only one problem — he never told them his name. It would take two years, thousands of devoted internet sleuths, and a miracle of science to identify him, and that’s when the trouble really starts. A character-centric reimagining of a classic true crime genre, They Called Him Mostly Harmless is about finding yourself when you’re looking for someone else.
After a buzzy sneak peek at the Florida Film Festival, the film had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Other notable festival appearances include Miami GEMS and the documentary was also one of eight films selected for the inaugural Jackson Hole Film Festival.
