Documentary Miniseries from “Dateline NBC” Premieres Thurs., Feb. 18 at 10 p.m. ET
February 4, 2020 – NBC will premiere The Widower, a three-part true-crime miniseries from the producers of Dateline NBC, on Thursday, February 18th at 10pm ET/9pm CT. The Widower takes viewers behind the scenes of a decade-long investigation into Thomas Randolph, an eccentric Las Vegas man accused of killing his wife Sharon. With hundreds of hours of exclusive footage, Dateline NBC veteran producer Dan Slepian captures the confounding murder investigation that soon reveals Sharon was Randolph’s sixth wife — and the fourth to die under mysterious circumstances.
Over the course of 10 years, Slepian travels across the country, interviewing and documenting in real time the alleged killer as he tantalizes law enforcement, the legal team and even the Dateline cameras in a twisted game of cat and mouse.
Additionally, the three-part series features unprecedented access to Randolph, detectives, prosecutors and the defense team, as well as gavel-to-gavel coverage of the trial. Dateline also speaks with Randolph’s surviving wives, family members of his alleged victims and his would-be accomplices, who reveal details of his sordid past in an effort to finally stop him.
The Widower is produced by Dateline’s supervising producer Dan Slepian and senior producer Paul Ryan. David Corvo is the senior executive producer and Liz Cole is the executive producer.
