The new Peacock documentary TikTok Star Murders, will expose the dark side of social media and fame as a couple who initially appears to have it all descends into a world of jealousy, violence, and addiction with fatal consequences.

The documentary, which premieres on the streaming network Tuesday, June 25, will follow the lives  of TikTok personality Ali Abulaban and his beautiful wife Ana as they adjust to their new-found fame.

“Ali and Ana Abulaban have it all — great jobs, a beautiful young daughter, and the promise of stardom. A TikTok creator who gained popularity under the username JinnKid in late 2019, Ali is known for his viral Skyrim and Scarface comedic impressions, often featuring his beautiful wife, Ana,” a description of the documentary reads. “To his fans, Ali is talented, funny, charismatic and has a picture-perfect relationship with the modelesque Ana. They seemingly have it all, but not everything online is as it seems.”

A Closer Look at Ali and Ana's Marriage

Behind the scenes, the relationship is plagued with domestic violence. One image in the official trailer of the documentary, which is led by executive producer and showrunner George Plamondon, shows Ana with bruises and scratches to the side of her face.

“Narcissism, addiction and crippling jealousy all play a role in Ali's desire for control and fame, while Ana seeks independence and a happy life for her and her daughter,” the description continues. “The relationship disintegrates, and in October of 2021, the abuse takes a deadly turn that leaves two people dead, and another facing a lifetime behind bars.” 

The story is told through interviews with those closest to the couple along with harrowing “private, never-before-aired cellphone footage and audio” that provides a glimpse into lives of the two social media stars as it spirals out of control. 

“I gave you this life. I’m going to show you how much you need me,” Ali chillingly says in the trailer.

As Ali filmed, he captured haunting interactions between the two. 

“Get out of my house, please. I said leave,” Ana tells him during one exchange shown in the trailer.

“Don’t get married guys,” Ali says, before telling the camera. “I threw my whole life away for her.” 

Along with interviews with the couples’ family and friends — who describe Ana as living in fear — the documentary features commentary from reporter Kelsey Christensen and a clinical/forensic psychologist who weighs in on the couple’s unhealthy dynamic. 

TikTok Star Murders follows the couple from their early days of success to the shocking crime and criminal trial that followed. 

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson serves as the Executive Producer of the 90-minute documentary along with Zak Weisfeld, Libby Richman and Elizabeth Fisher.

TikTok Star Murders is produced by Lusid Media and G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.
