Dutton ("Threshold"), Dean Cain ("Clubhouse") and Kelly Hu ("Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II � The Sith Lords") in a thriller based on The New York Times bestseller by Nelson DeMille, in which chaos and death engulf an airliner traveling from the United States to Tokyo when it is accidentally hit by a U.S. Navy test missile.

THE HUNT FOR THE BTK STRANGLER (working title), Sunday, Oct. 9 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), is based on the true story and bizarre saga of the notorious serial killer known as the BTK killer who was finally found and arrested after a 31-year spree of brutal murders in the Midwestern city of Wichita, Kansas.

Frank Von Zerneck, Robert Sertner and Jill Tanner are the executive producers for Von Zerneck/Sertner Films, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

CATEGORY 7: THE END OF THE WORLD, previously announced for Sunday, Nov.6 and Sunday, Nov. 13 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT, both nights), is a new four-hour mini-series starring Emmy Award nominee Randy Quaid ("Elvis") and Gina Gershon ("Out of Season") that begins where "Category 6: Day of Destruction" ended, as the ultimate superstorm continues to build in size, ravaging the rest of the world and culminating over Washington, D.C.
