Binge on this critically acclaimed three-part British drama series in just one night!

Over a 13-year period, Webster poisons and murders his first wife, attempts to do the same to his second wife, and devises a different scheme to deceive his third fiancée. The Widower, a three-part series, airs in its entirety on Sunday, MArch 17 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV. Co-written and executive produced by ITV Studios’ award-winning factual drama screenwriter and filmmaker Jeff Pope (Philomena, “Mrs. Biggs”), The Widower tells the true story of Malcolm Webster (Reece Shearsmith) —a seemingly mild-mannered male nurse who marries, and then attempts to kill, a succession of women to cash in on their life insurance policies.

This series originally premiered in 2016.
