U.S. net Showtime is to air Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi, a 90-minute documentary looking at the life of the late tyrant, on April 11.

Airing at 9 p.m. EST, the doc promises to explore the life and 40-year reign of the Libyan leader, via “exclusive access and interviews with palace insiders, and those who gave shape to Gaddafi’s dark dreams,” according to the network.

As previously reported, the film aired earlier this month in the UK – under the slightly different title of Mad Dog – Gaddafi’s Secret World - on BBC ‘Storyville.’

The film was made by Fresh One Productions, and was directed, produced and filmed by Christopher Olgiati. Roy Ackerman serves as EP and the film was coproduced by Michael Chrisman.
