‘CopyCat Killers’ is a crime based documentary TV show that airs on Reelz. The series first premiered on February 27, 2016. It investigates real-life crime cases that are similar to criminal acts shown in Hollywood movies and tries to show the investigation that goes on after the crime, juxtaposing it with scenes from the movie that inspired the crime.
The series is presented by J. Buzz Von Ornsteiner and narrated by Brian Stivale. The executive producers of the show are Phil Claroni and Becky Dodson, and the production company is Story House.
CopyCat Killers Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of ‘CopyCat Killers’ is of course not fixed since each episode focuses on a new crime, which means new criminals, new victims, new investigators. However, the narrator Brian Stivale and the analyst J. Buzz Von Ornsteiner are seen or heard in almost every episode.
Hopefully, the upcoming season of the show will introduce us to even more of these nefarious characters, and the crack team of investigators who piece together the puzzles of the crime to bring the perpetrators in, to face justice.
