Sky Crime in the UK has picked up Cineflix true crime docuseries The Torso Killer Confessions.
The series, which will be titled as The Torso Killer in the UK, will debut on 3 September, with the acquisition coming just days after the two-part special launched on A&E in the US.
Featuring never-before-heard audio, exclusive footage and photos and one particular confession never shared until now, the series delves into the decades-long journey to bring justice to the victims of the notorious ‘Torso Killer,’ also known as Richard Cottingham – one of America’s most prolific serial killers.
Working in tandem with the cold-case Detective Robert Anzilotti who spent 20-plus years building an investigation and a relationship with Cottingham, Cineflix goes behind-the-scenes to unearth a trove of shocking material and conversations linking Cottingham to six additional killings that date back to the 1960s.
The special is produced by Cineflix Productions in association with A&E Network. Jacqueline Bynon, Robert Anzilotti, J.C. Mills, and Sherri Rufh serve as executive producers, alongside Elaine Frontain, Bryant Brad Abramson, and Maitee Cueva.
“This wasn’t just another gratuitous sensationalizing of a serial killer’s spree; this is a story of the cop that spent a majority of his career to give some form of closure to families and hold Richard Cottingham accountable for his horrific crimes against young women,” said Mills, president and head of content, Cineflix Productions.
