ABC News Studios Announced New Documentary Series “The Lesson Is Murder”
Disney’s ABC News Studios’ has announced a brand new series, “The Lesson Is Murder,” which explores this question: Why did this killer kill? Renowned criminologist and former FBI special agent Dr. Bryanna Fox has devoted her career to this question and is now teaching the next generation of criminologists in her role as a university professor. This three-part series, produced in association with Lone Wolf Media, follows Dr. Fox and her team of graduate students as they study three different murderers and interview them on-camera, directly probing the minds of each killer to develop psychological profiles for each case and uncover shocking new insights into their motives.
“The Lesson Is Murder” offers a look into the minds of some of the most complex murderers, including serial killer Will Davis, a former nurse who was convicted of killing four patients. While his motive has remained a mystery, Davis tells all to Dr. Fox in his first-ever broadcast interview from death row.

Dr. Fox interviews Fratta from death row and explores why the convicted killer maintains his innocence.
