A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL DOCU-SERIES "THE KILLING SEASON" SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH AT 9PM

FILMMAKERS JOSH ZEMAN AND RACHEL MILLS DELVE INTO THE UNSOLVED LONG ISLAND SERIAL KILLER CASE AND OTHERS WITH THE HELP OF AMATEUR CYBER-SLEUTHS

EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING(R) FILMMAKER ALEX GIBNEY

NEW YORK, NY - September 14, 2016 - A&E Network's gritty new docu-series "The Killing Season" from Executive Producer Alex Gibney follows documentarians, Joshua Zeman (Cropsey) and Rachel Mills as they investigate one of the most bizarre unsolved serial killer cases of our time -- ten dead sex workers discovered on Gilgo Beach, Long Island. Authorities believe these killings are the work of the Long Island Serial Killer, who after five years remains at large. Forging relationships with cyber-sleuths, journalists and victim's families, Zeman and Mills uncover connections that suggest Long Island is just the beginning. "The Killing Season" premieres with back-to-back episodes Saturday, November 5th at 9PM ET.

'"The Killing Season' takes viewers on a chilling ride through the unknown and is a perfect example of impactful storytelling that drives the cultural conversation," says Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and Head of Programming, A&E.

Working with amateur cyber-sleuths, Zeman and Mills uncover a web of eerie connections to unsolved murders from Atlantic City to Daytona Beach and beyond -- revealing that serial killers are targeting sex workers in record numbers, while using the Internet as their virtual hunting ground. Many of the victims, often referred to as the "Missing Missing," are never accounted for and their murders are far less likely to be solved.

This gripping eight-episode series is a deep-dive into a world of serial murder rarely seen before, going beyond pop-culture stereotypes to expose a real-life American nightmare. However, with the help of Websleuths.com and data journalists, Zeman and Mills learn that everyday citizens can make a difference -- by uncovering clues that police cannot, in hopes that one day, "The Killing Season" will end.

"The Killing Season" is produced for A&E Network by Jigsaw Productions and Gigantic Pictures. The series is directed by Joshua Zeman. Executive producers for Jigsaw Productions are Alex Gibney, Joshua Zeman, Rachel Mills, Stacey Offman, and Dave Snyder, and Co-Executive Producers are Brad Hebert, Richard Perello and Showrunner Ben Parry. Executive producers for A&E are Shelly Tatro and Brad Abramson.
