CBS Puts BTK Killer Movie Into Production
A movie about the effort to bring BTK killer Dennis Rader to justice is in production for CBS and will air Oct. 9, the network said Tuesday.
"The Hunt for the BTK Killer" stars Robert Forster and Michael Michele as two Wichita, Kan., police detectives who discover that Rader has resurfaced after almost 15 years and must be caught.
Gregg Henry plays Rader, who last week was sentenced to 10 consecutive life terms. He was arrested in February and pleaded guilty in June to 10 murders from 1974 to 1991.
A former church congregation president and Boy Scout leader, Rader led a double life in which he called himself BTK for "bind, torture and kill."
The film, being produced in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is from Von Zerneck-Sertner Films in association with Sony Pictures Television
