Hulu released an official trailer for Dead Asleep, a documentary on the true story of a man convicted of a murder that he committed, while sleepwalking. Directed by award-winner Skye Borgman, who is also behind the critically acclaimed documentary Abducted In Plain Sight, Dead Asleep debuts on Hulu on December 16th.

In a ground-breaking new spin on the true-crime genre, the documentary film Dead Asleep, flips the traditional thriller narrative to explore a deeper and more troubling mystery: Did a remorseful Randy Herman Jr. really commit a brutal murder in his sleep, or was it a convenient cover story?

The documentary filmmaker secured exclusive access to Herman and his family, the defense and prosecution attorneys, journalists who covered the case, forensic psychiatrists and world experts in violent parasomnia (sleep-walking) to give viewers an inside look at the shocking twists and turns of the controversial crime.
