A Final Witness program includes a cast member, Marc Isaacs, who is originally from Lisbon. A true crime tale, Final Witness is based on the 2008 murder that took place in East Texas. It comes to life as documentary-style interviews which are combination of drama and the murder.
On ABC, a part of the first episode of “Final Witness” has been played by Isaacs. With the story told from the perspective of one of the deceased victims, the new hour-long program performed true life crimes. In 2008, the murder of a Texas family was recounted by the initial episode. In reenactment scenes throughout the show, Isaacs plays the role of father of that family.
For the role in Dallas, Isaacs auditioned in July and production began the following month. Isaacs appeared on stage at St. Lawrence University more than two decades ago and it is the latest role for the Texas-based actor for him. Isaacs worked on several commercial, film and TV projects, which consists of HBO’s multiple Emmy Award-winning “Temple Grandin” and “The Good Guys” on FOX in the last few years. In the coming year, he will be seen in a self-governing feature film called “The Toy Box” about real-life serial killer David Parker Ray. Isaacs plays the prosecutor who tries to put Ray behind bars for life.
Isaacs grew up in Lisbon and studied at Lisbon Central School. In 1998, he was lived in St. Lawrence County but later he moved to Watertown to work at what was CIZ-FM, then at Channel 7. His parents, Ron and Peg Bisnett, still live in Lisbon.
