ARK MEDIA partners with Bradley Cooper and WETA for documentary about caregivers


Ctrl+Alt+Desire,” a three-part docuseries about Grant Amato, a 29-year-old man accused of murdering his own family execution style, will debut April 16 on Paramount+.

Amato was found guilty of first-degree premeditated murder in 2019 for the killings of his mother, father, and brother at their Florida home.

Veteran docu D.P. Colin Archdeacon, who is making his directorial debut on “Ctrl+Alt+Desire,” exposes a tale of a digital addiction, loneliness and a distorted reality leading to obsession, deceit, and, eventually, murder.

Archdeacon filmed the series for four years, chronicling how Amato descended into chaos after discovering live-stream cam models who perform erotic acts online in exchange for money. After coming across the online cam-model world, Amato immediately fell in love with Silvie, a Bulgarian cam-woman. In a desperate bid to hold Silvie’s attention, Amato reinvented himself online, crafting a confident, big spender alter ego by stealing $200,000 from his family in the months leading up to the murders.
