Louis Theroux has made some pretty batsh*t crazy documentaries in his time.

But one of his most memorable moments happened when he interviewed "the most dangerous racist in America."

He followed the guy to skinhead rallies and on a visit to Mexico for his incredible documentary titled Louis and the Nazis.

But things got pretty dark one night when he was hanging out at his house...

Jeez Louis! Why you do dis?

Earlier this month, the famed journalist revealed he will return to BBC Two later this year with not one, not two, but THREE brand new films!

This time, he'll take and in-depth look at some of the 'uniquely devastating challenges' currently facing America, from murder to sex trafficking to opiate dependency.

Speaking about his new projects, he said:

I immerse myself in some of the most dysfunctional and disturbing aspects of American society.
They combine hard-hitting actuality with intimate interviews.
I have been granted access to the police in several states; I've got to know the people affected by crime; and I've also spent time with the perpetrators of crime, with the idea of understanding the causes of it, both on a systemic level and also in a very personal way.

The films will be titled Murder in Milwaukee, Sex Trafficking Houston (working title), and Opiate City.

We cannot wait!
