A&E Network has announced details on a two-night true crime documentary event exploring the crimes of serial killer Dennis Rader in BTK: Confession of a Serial Killer.

The two-part documentary will air on A&E on January 8 and 9, and comes from Dick Wolf’s Wolf Entertainment and Good Caper Content. The documentary promises unprecedented access to Rader, who is serving 10 consecutive life sentences in prison.

Katherine Ramsland, an author and professor of forensic psychology who has corresponded with Rader for a decade and is still in touch with him, will share details of Rader’s past and his murders. The series features exclusive phone conversations with Rader, new archival material, interviews, and access to Rader’s drawings and coded diaries, along with Ramsland’s expertise.

“Through her deep and extraordinary work mapping some of the darkest corners of the human psyche, Dr. Ramsland has performed an invaluable service to law enforcement and the country at large,” said Dick Wolf in a release. “Her insights become tools with which we can identify other monsters like BTK earlier in their evolution, and I am pleased to further Dr. Ramsland’s mission through this important and gripping new series.”

Dick Wolf and Tom Thayer serve as executive producers for Wolf Entertainment, with Jordana Hochman, Alison Dammann and Cynthia Childs executive producing for Good Caper Content. Dr. Katherine Ramsland also serves as an executive producer. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Brad Abramson are executive producers for A&E Network. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights to the series.
