U.S. cable net Oxygen has set the premiere date for Toronto prodco Peacock Alley Entertainment’s first true crime special, Catching A Serial Killer: Bruce McArthur.

Airing on Sunday, April 11, and commissioned by Oxygen, the two-hour special follows the story of serial killer Bruce McArthur, who targeted and murdered members of Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community for a decade, shocking the city and nation.

The film includes exclusive interviews with McArthur’s close friends and the homicide investigators that solved the case as well as expert analyses from leading criminologists and forensic psychologists.

“Oxygen is the perfect broadcast partner for us to tell this harrowing, inconceivable story,” said Carrie Mudd, president, Peacock Alley Entertainment, in a statement. “McArthur’s case is tragic and complex, and the investigation had many layers which we explore while being respectful of the victims, their families and Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community who were so heavily impacted by these horrific events.”

The special is produced by Diana Foley and Ryan Valentini for Peacock Alley Entertainment. James Buddy Day and Mudd serve as executive producers.

Catching A Serial Killer: Bruce McArthur was filmed in Toronto in the summer of 2020 and after its Oxygen debut, airs on Canada via Super Channel on April 30.
