Tracking down a serial killerMysterious : Mark Ruffalo (Left) in Zodiac.

Zodiac airs on November 23 at 9 pm on WB. Directed by David Fincher, the movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr and Anthony Edwards. There is more than one way to lose your life to a killer. The hunt is on for a serial killer in San Francisco.

Few cases in the history of true crime are as intriguing as that of Zodiac, a bizarre gunman in an executioner’s hood, who taunts the police with dozens of letters containing eerie messages and cryptograms. Director David Fincher (Panic Room, Fight Club, Seven) captures the story of the infamous killer who terrorised the city in the late 1960s.

Hot and happening

When a crime brings them back to Los Angeles, fugitive ex-con Dominic Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner.

And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, the two men will find the best way to get revenge —push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.

As puzzling as it can get

When you scratch your chin, wring your hands, wrinkle your nose or swallow too much, Dr Cal Lightman knows you’re lying.

Uncover the deepest secrets behind a face with Star World, as it presents an unusual thought-provoking crime drama — Lie to Me — a dramatic series, which is about a former police officer who is a “human lie detector” and an expert in reading facial and body language that gives away deception.

More accurate than any polygraph, Dr Cal knows whether those in front of him — be it family, friends, criminals or complete strangers — are honest or not.

Dr Lightman heads The Lightman Group, a private agency contracted by the FBI, local police, law firms, corporations and private individuals when they hit roadblocks in their searches for the truth. Joining him is Dr Gillian Foster, who is a gifted psychologist and Lightman’s professional partner, a woman whose guidance he needs.

The series follows Lightman and his team of deception experts as they assist law enforcement and government agencies to expose the truth behind the lies. Lie to Me airs every Monday to Thursday at 10 pm.
