Series overview

This brand new documentary series for ITVX unravels the complex web of the multiple “other Mrs Jordans” and follows the real time manhunt led by retired US Marshal Tex Lindsey, to track down the shady figure who left so much pain and confusion in his wake across the globe.

Mary Turner Thomson had grown used to her husband’s frequent and often sudden trips away to far-flung locations as well as the secretive nature of his work, which meant he was regularly unable to maintain contact with her. She convinced herself that these challenges were a necessary sacrifice when your spouse, William Allen Jordan, was a CIA agent working in counter terrorism in the early 2000s. Or so she thought, until a fateful phone call in April 2006 from someone saying she was “The Other Mrs Jordan” blew her world apart.

The series tells the astonishing true tale of William Allen Jordan – bigamist, fraudster, father and conman. As told by Mary, his children, key figures and other victims.
