Catch Me A Killer

Flag zaMade in South Africa

Stream the brand-new Showmax Original crime series based on a serial-killer profiler’s memoir. New episodes land every week.

Charlotte Hope, who played Myranda in Game of Thrones and headlined Starz’s The Spanish Princess as Catherine of Aragon, stars in Catch Me a Killer as Micki Pistorius, South Africa’s first-ever serial-killer profiler.

Adapted from Pistorius’ memoir, the true crime series is set in the mid-90s and traces Pistorius’ quest, as a newly-qualified forensic psychologist, to track down South Africa’s most feared killers. At this time, the country was gripped by an epidemic of rising crime and murder. Each episode looks at another of her cases, from the Station Strangler to the Cleveland Killer to Stewart ‘Boetie Boer’ Wilken.
