Following the high-rating performance of true crime documentary special Casey Anthony: Her Friends Speak, REELZ ordered a full series of Friends Speak in 2019 from Kinetic Content and Pyramid Productions. The show has proved to be the highest-rated series on Reelz for each of the past two years. Red Arrow Studios International distributes Friends Speak worldwide.
Natalee Holloway disappeared while on a school trip in Aruba in 2005. Why and how did this popular and responsible Alabama honors student completely vanish? Evidence points to the man Holloway was last seen with in Joran van der Sloot but as Holloway’s parents quickly found out when they visited Aruba to look for their missing daughter local authorities would hardly be an ally in the quest to find Natalee. Now in Natalee Holloway: Her Friends Speak Holloway’s friends Mallie Tucker and Claire Fierman speak out about the night Holloway vanished and the nightmare experience that followed. Also sharing their stories are Bob and Cary Plummer who were teachers at Holloway’s high school and who chaperoned the Aruba trip. Private investigator T.J. Ward and former secret service agent Arthur Wood give their first-hand accounts of being involved in the search for Holloway and what they think really happened as well as their harsh critique of the Aruban authorities handling of the case.
