SHOWTIME® Unleashes MAD DOG: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF MUAMMAR GADDAFI - A Riveting Chronicle Of The Libyan Dictator's Tyrannical Regime

New Feature-Length Documentary Premieres Friday, April 11th At 9 PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the United States continues to confront the myriad strategic challenges and controversies that have arisen in the wake of the Arab Spring and the fall of Libyan strong man Muammar Gaddafi, SHOWTIME will premiere the new feature-length documentary MAD DOG: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF MUAMMAR GADDAFI, an in-depth and provocative look into the tyrannical regime of one of the world's most infamous dictators. The 90-minute documentary will premiere on SHOWTIME on Friday, April 11th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

MAD DOG: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF MUAMMAR GADDAFI takes viewers on a worldwide journey, gaining exclusive access and interviews with palace insiders and those who gave shape to Gaddafi's dark dreams. They include a fugitive from US justice who helped Gaddafi kill his enemies worldwide, and was a major supplier for the dictator's international terror enterprise; Valerie Plame, the famous CIA counter-proliferation operative; the widow of the Libyan foreign minister whose body Gaddafi kept in a freezer; the American businessman who supplied Gaddafi with lethal poisons; a female bodyguard who adored him until she saw teenagers raped and executed; as well as Gaddafi's German rocket designer and sometime confidante. Their collective stories represent a unique and rare close-up glimpse of a brutal and contradictory, yet sometimes vulnerable dictator – a dictator who kept the world continually fascinated for the more than 40 years he occupied the international stage. Muammar Gaddafi's story is a study in the exercise of absolute power, told not by politicians but by those who directly served the late Libyan leader who at the height of his reign was earning more than 1 billion dollars a week in oil revenues. Ronald Reagan called him a mad dog; his story is stranger than fiction.

MAD DOG: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF MUAMMAR GADDAFI was produced by Fresh One Productions for SHOWTIME. The film was directed, produced and filmed by award-winning filmmaker Christopher Olgiati. Roy Ackerman served as Executive Producer and the film was co-produced by Michael Chrisman.
