The book, Fatal Vision, became a smash bestseller and a TV limited series watched by millions of people. But the story it told wasn’t the story Jeff expected…And that sets off a series of events that ruins both their lives. Morally Indefensible is a companion to the FX docuseries, A Wilderness of Error coming to FX September 25, and streaming next day on Hulu.
