Two Hour Special Premieres Saturday, December 17 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT

(Albuquerque, NM) Thursday, December 1, 2016 - REELZ today announced �the original documentary special Overkill: The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét from award-winning author and director, Lawrence Schiller. The murder of JonBenét Ramsey in Colorado on Christmas in 1996 remains unsolved. Now, 20 years later Schiller, who wrote the New York Times best-selling book on the case, Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, digs deep into his extensive archive of hundreds of recorded interviews with eyewitnesses, law enforcement officers, investigators, scientific and forensic experts and criminologists. Schiller's exhaustive examination of the case uncovers fresh information from those involved to tell the story of JonBenét's murder like never before. Overkill: The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét is produced by WS Productions, Inc. and Peabody Award-winning producer Tom Jennings and will premiere Saturday, December 17 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT.

"JonBenét's story is a perplexing and heartbreaking case," said Steve Cheskin, SVP of REELZ Programming. "Even now, 20 years later, it still remains a mystery with puzzling twists and turns. Helping to unravel what really happened that night is renowned author Lawrence Schiller. We are proud to be working with him and the talented team he has assembled."

"We're showing viewers the remarkable complexity of this case and why 20 years later there are still no clear answers," said Lawrence Schiller. "There are stark differences of opinion among the many professionals involved and our goal is to show viewers the flawed sequence of events in gathering the evidence which led to one of most notorious unsolved murders in the history of American crime."

Overkill: The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét examines several key questions surrounding the case from whether total contamination of the crime scene prevented the killer from being caught to showing viewers the deep rift that formed between the Boulder District Attorney's Office and the Boulder Police Department and its impact on the case. Among the many people Schiller interviewed for Overkill: The Murder of JonBenét is the main detective on the case, now retired FBI agent Ron Walker, author and reporter Paula Woodward who covered the case extensively, forensic psychologist Gregg McCrary, homicide detective Lou Smit and included are revealing interviews from detective Steve Thomas and Boulder, Colorado District Attorney Alex Hunter.
