A&E SPECIAL PRESENTATION: MIAMI MANHUNT

EXCLUSIVE ORIGINAL FILM HUNTS DOWN SERIAL RAPIST IN REAL TIME

PREMIERES THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28TH @ 10PM ET/PT

New York, NY � December 11, 2006 � When a string of disturbing assaults terrorizes Miami in the summer of 2003, the city cries for justice. The police launch a massive investigation, and soon realize they have a serial rapist on their hands. The investigation and apprehension that ensue become one of the most famed manhunts in Miami�s history. Now, in the A&E special presentation, MIAMI MANHUNT, premiering Thursday, December 28, 2006 at 10 PM, the hunt, capture, and trial of notorious serial rapist Reynaldo Rapalo � with some surprising twists and turns along the way � are all caught on film in real-time as the case unfolds.

The two-hour special gives viewers an exclusive inside look at the tireless police investigation with intimate access to the Miami detectives (featuring detectives from A&E�s hit real-life detective series, The First 48), the lawyers on both sides of the case, and exclusive footage of the suspect himself, who actually confesses to the crimes on camera. In the style of A&E�s hit justice series The First 48, MIAMI MANHUNT traces this incredible real-life detective drama from start to finish, combining heroic characters, gritty cinematography, and unfettered access. A&E�s cameras are there during the intense manhunt that resulted in Rapalo�s capture and confession, and during the shocking turn of events that took place right before Rapalo�s trial . . .

MIAMI MANHUNT is produced by Rumur Inc and Zachary M. Werner Productions for A&E Network. Executive Produced and Directed by David Beilinson, Michael Galinsky, Suki Hawley, and Zachary Werner. A&E Executive Producers are Laura Fleury and Nancy Dubuc.
