This is the true story of the life, violent death, and still-unfolding legacy of Dr. Eugene Mallove, a renowned scientist and fierce advocate for a controversial form of alternative energy called cold fusion. Part true crime, part mad science — we follow Mallove’s near-obsessive dedication to a conspiracy-riddled field of research and how the unspooling investigation of his death became part of that story.
Cold Truth is a limited-run, 8-episode season and the first in the Crime Waves anthology. Told by award-winning journalist and author David Kushner through interviews with family, colleagues, and investigators, this show takes us on a journey — from Mallove uncovering a real conspiracy to his own murder, which remained unsolved for years after his death.
Crime Waves is developed and produced by Faceplant and QCODE, in association with No Smiling.
