LMN PREMIERES FIRST ORIGINAL SERIES "KILLER PROFILE" ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13 AT 9PM
6 EPISODE ONE-HOUR NONFICTION SERIES DELVES INTO THE WORLD OF THREE CRIMINAL PROFILERS AND THE MINDS OF SERIAL KILLERS
New York, NY - September 24, 2013 - LMN, the ultimate destination for visceral and emotionally-charged storytelling, is expanding on its position as a top destination for entertainment for women by introducing the network's first original series, "Killer Profile," premiering Sunday, October 13 at 9PM.
In the new nonfiction series "Killer Profile," three highly trained, successful criminal profilers lead viewers through the troubled minds and disturbing exploits of some of America's most vicious serial killers. Each one-hour episode will focus on a single notorious serial killer. Viewers will hear from the detectives who worked the cases, the witnesses and, in many cases, the killers themselves.
The profilers featured include Jim Clemente, a retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent and former New York City Law Department prosecutor, who served as a consultant and writer on the hit series "Criminal Minds"; Laura Richards, who left Scotland Yard to take up the role of advising the UK-based Association of Chief Police Officers; and James Fitzgerald, a former police detective and sergeant and FBI Supervisory Special Agent assigned to the Behavioral Analysis Unit who was instrumental in the apprehension of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
The first episode of "Killer Profile" explores the mind of Gary Heidnik, who captured and enslaved four women in the basement of his Philadephia home. Heidnik served as the inspiration for Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.
