Talk to Me tells the inside story of how the field of hostage negotiations was created. In the wake of major 1970's tragedies such as the Attica prison riot and the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics, the NYPD realized there was an urgent need to develop a system for handling hostage incidents. With news archives and first-hand accounts from hostage team founders Frank Bolz and Harvey Schlossberg, we bring to life cases large and small to explore what worked-and what didn't. The world's first hostage negotiation team pioneered the use of psychology in saving lives and created a model that is still used around the world today. The series is written and narrated by Edward Conlon, a veteran South Bronx detective and New York Times bestselling author. An XG Productions Series.
