20/20 Episode Preview

Nearly three decades ago, then-17-year-old Amy Fisher ― dubbed the “Long Island Lolita” by media ― shot Mary Jo Buttafuoco on her front porch following an affair with her husband, Joey Buttafuoco. “20/20” takes a look at the story through the eyes of Mary Jo, Joey and their daughter, Jessie, who was just 9 years old at the time of the shooting in May 1992. Jessie reflects on her journey, including how she learned to understand the tabloid glare that dominated her childhood and how she survived the scrutiny. She also reveals intimate details about life after the incident, including her mom’s excruciating recovery; the family’s move to California to try and escape the media frenzy; her battle with drugs, alcohol and depression; how she turned her life around; and her relationship with her parents.

The two-hour program also features Buttafuoco family home videos and the first on-camera interview with confessed accomplice Steven Sleeman, who says Amy hired him to kill Mary Jo. Steven reveals startling details to “20/20” about his role in what he claims was another attempt to kill Mary Jo that shocked his attorney and the Buttafuocos. “20/20” airs on Friday, Aug. 4 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (OAD: 11/08/2019)
