LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Tom Cavanagh, James Marsters and Sharon Lawrence have signed on to star in a miniseries about the search for the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history.

"The Capture of the Green River Killer" is a two-part miniseries based on the book, "Chasing the Devil" by former lead detective and current U.S. Rep. David Reichert.

Part One is slated to premiere March 30 and Part Two March 31 on the Lifetime Movie Network.

The Green River Killer, whose real name is Gary Leon Ridgway, admitted killing 48 women from the Seattle area between 1982 and 1998.

He lived a double life, eluding a massive search and investigation for 20 years, the network said.

"I am honored that my book and story are coming to the screen as Lifetime Movie Network's first original miniseries," Reichert said in a statement. "On behalf of all of the men and women in law enforcement that helped to put the Green River Killer behind bars -- and in memory of all of the victims and families -- I look forward to this moving film premiering in March."
