UK factual entertainment channel CBS Reality will debut a new original true crime series this fall.

Voice of a Serial Killer foregrounds the audio recordings of confessions from notorious serial killers, including Robert Black, Colin Ireland, Kim Edwards, Ted Bundy and Aileen Wuornos. Lip-sync technology aids actors in re-creations of the killers’ confessions in the police interrogation room.

Complementing these re-creations are dramatic reconstructions of the crimes themselves, as well as interviews with experts, including professor of criminology David Wilson (pictured) and professor of forensic psychology Michael Brookes OBE.

“The murders examined in Voice of a Serial Killer represent some of the most evil acts in history,” said Sam Rowden, CBS Reality’s director of programming, in a statement. “To listen to the actual taped confessions of the perpetrators using realistic lip-sync technology, is as chilling as it gets. Our viewers will both hear and see the police interrogations, in some cases for the first time ever.”

The ten-part docuseries was executive produced by Rowden. Rik Hall serves as producer, and David Howard writes and directs.

Previous programs developed by Monster Films, the prodco founded by Hall and Howard, include Interview with a Murderer.

Past CBS Reality Originals include Murderers and Their Mothers, Killer Clergy, Stalkers Who Kill, Teens Who Kill and Written in Blood.
