Sheriff Dave's Miniseries

Lifetime TV to serialize the serial killer story.

Actor Tom Cavanagh, who starred in CBS' "Love Monkey," will play former King County Sheriff (and now congressman) Dave Reichert in an upcoming Lifetime Movie Network four-hour miniseries on the Green River killer. The series - run date not yet announced - is based on Reichert's book, "Chasing the Devil: My Twenty-Year Quest to Capture the Green River Killer," the Hollywood Reporter says today. LMN's adaptation, called "Desperate: The Search for the Green River Killer," will follow two teen girls trying to escape their rough life at a Seattle-area trailer park who end up on a collision course with Gary Ridgway, the homicidal twerp who ultimately confessed to 53 serial killings. Cavanagh, who also starred in NBC's "Ed," says the Reporter, "will portray Reichert, who navigated a number of suspects and false leads over two decades until he zeroed in on the unassuming Ridgway." Well - until Reichert and his department zeroed in on Ridgway, thanks plainly to scientific advancements in DNA testing - finally catching a killer who'd been on their suspect list for two decades. We're sure Hollywood will mention that.
