"The Mind of a Murderer" (TV show) on Investigation Discovery presents the modern-day Clarice Starling as Dr. Michelle Ward goes behind bars to interview violent murderers and offer insight into what drives people to kill. From her early doctorate research on psychopathy, to her ongoing study of criminal behavior, Dr. Ward possesses a unique ability to push murderers to the limit, getting them to admit things they wouldn't confess to anyone else. She is trained to go beyond excuses and get to the psychological core of why people commit heinous acts — and she does it alone in a room, face-to-face with coldblooded killers.

Each episode begins with Ward's mission, whether it's to get the criminal to confess, to demonstrate remorse, or to tell parts of the story that they've never shared before. She looks at the evidence through her unique lens to formulate a theory on the killer's true psyche before conducting the interview. And viewers will experience first-hand, the suspenseful and riveting in-person interviews with the killers which are contrasted with emotional statements from the victims' families and friends who are so desperately seeking closure.

"The Mind of a Murderer" is produced for Investigation Discovery by Atlas Media Corp. with Bruce David Klein and Lorri Leighton serving as executive producers. Fae Moore and Dr. Michelle Ward serve as co-executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Liz Massie is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
