THE HUNT FOR THE BTK STRANGLER (working title), Sunday, Oct. 9 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), is based on the true story and bizarre saga of the notorious serial killer known as the BTK killer who was finally found and arrested after a 31-year spree of brutal murders in the Midwestern city of Wichita, Kansas.

Frank Von Zerneck, Robert Sertner and Jill Tanner are the executive producers for Von Zerneck/Sertner Films, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

CATEGORY 7: THE END OF THE WORLD, previously announced for Sunday, Nov.6 and Sunday, Nov. 13 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT, both nights), is a new four-hour mini-series starring Emmy Award nominee Randy Quaid ("Elvis") and Gina Gershon ("Out of Season") that begins where "Category 6: Day of Destruction" ended, as the ultimate superstorm continues to build in size, ravaging the rest of the world and culminating over Washington, D.C.
