Golden Globe(R) Nominee Tom Cavanagh ('Ed'), Amy Davidson ('8 Simple Rules'), and Emmy(R) Nominee Sharon Lawrence ('NYPD Blue') Star in the First Ever Lifetime Movie Network Original Miniseries, 'The Capture Of The Green River Killer,' Which Tells the Inspiring True Story of the 20-Year Search for the Most Prolific Serial Killer in United States History

- Two-Part Miniseries Based on the Book, 'Chasing the Devil,' by Then Lead Detective and Now United States Representative David Reichert -

- From the Producers of 'Broken Trail,' the Emmy(R) Award-Winning Miniseries of 2007 -

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 -- He was one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. history, admitting to the murder of 48 women from the Seattle area between 1982 and 1998. He lived a double life, eluding a massive search and investigation for 20 years. Predator by night, but functioning citizen by day, he was the Green River Killer. Now, in the first original miniseries on Lifetime Movie Network -- Lifetime's sister network and the second highest rated women's network -- "The Capture of the Green River Killer" follows the dogged determination of one persistent, nearly obsessive Washington State detective, Dave Reichert (Tom Cavanagh, "Ed"). Detective Reichert used guile, wits and perseverance to hunt the murderer, bringing an end to the largest unsolved serial killer case in the country, and in doing so, helped provide much needed closure to the victims' families. Part One of "The Capture of the Green River Killer" premieres Sunday, March 30 and Part Two on Monday, March 31, both at 8PM (ET/PT) on Lifetime Movie Network.

"I am honored that my book and story are coming to the screen as Lifetime Movie Network's first original miniseries," said Congressman Reichert. "On behalf of all of the men and women in law enforcement that helped to put the Green River Killer behind bars -- and in memory of all of the victims and families -- I look forward to this moving film premiering in March."

"The quality of the script and the caliber of the producers and cast were a perfect fit for this project to be the first original miniseries in Lifetime Movie Network's history," added Louise Henry Bryson, President, Distribution, Lifetime Networks, and Executive Vice President/General Manager, Lifetime Movie Network. "Our loyal viewers have made Lifetime Movie Network the #2 highest rated cable channel for women, second only to Lifetime, because they are avid movie fans. This first-ever miniseries event, bringing to life a compelling and emotional true story, will give women even more to love."

Told through the eyes of one young runaway, Helen "Hel" Remus (Amy Davidson), "The Capture of the Green River Killer" is the haunting tale of how fate, bad luck and bad choices lead to her encounter with the notorious serial killer. The miniseries begins with teenagers and close friends Helen & Natalie (Jessica Harmon), as they try to escape from their rough existence from a Seattle trailer park. Unbeknownst to them, the two teens are on a collision course with the Green River Killer, who targets runaways and prostitutes. Simultaneously, police detective David Reichert is relentlessly hunting the killer, chasing down leads and suspects. Desperate for a break in the case, Reichert consults with convicted serial killer Ted Bundy (James Marsters, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), who offers insights into the mind of the Green River Killer. Meanwhile, a desperate Helen decides to turn to prostitution to get away from her mother's (Sharon Lawrence, "NYPD Blue") abusive boyfriend. At the end of Part One, the unknowing Helen and the Green River Killer cross paths.

Part Two chronicles Helen's disappearance and Reichert's tireless search for her and countless other victims. The investigation spans nearly 20 years, causing serious strain on Reichert's marriage and nearly consuming Reichert himself. While many officers would have given up, Reichert stays the course during the entire manhunt, enduring critical press headlines, police department shakedowns, FBI territorial "turf" battles and false confessions. With no clues forthcoming, the final breakthrough amazingly comes from another chilling meeting, behind bars, between Reichert and Bundy. Over the course of night two, Reichert is finally able to zero in on truck painter Gary Ridgway (John Pielmeier), a sociopath with an amazing ability to pass polygraph tests, but whom DNA and fiber evidence would later conclusively prove to be the Green River Killer.

"The Capture of the Green River Killer" is produced by Once Upon a Time Films for Lifetime Movie Network. Emmy(R) winner Stanley M. Brooks ("Broken Trail") and John Pielmeier ("Sins of the Father," Lifetime's "The Memory Keeper's Daughter") serve as executive producers. Juliette Hagopian ("Holiday Switch") and Emmy(R) winner Damian Ganczewski ("Broken Trail") produced the movie. Norma Bailey ("Ladies Night") directed the movie from a script written by Pielmeier. The script for "The Capture of the Green River Killer" is based on the book Chasing the Devil: My Twenty-Year Quest to Capture the Green River Killer by David Reichert.
