The four-part series will tie in with the 30th anniversary of Bundy's execution in 1989, focusing on the murders he was convicted of, the media frenzy that surrounded his trials and his infamously charismatic way of charming women.

From the synopsis alone, we've been promised a 'cinematic self-portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy', which will give us 'a unique look inside the mind of an infamous serial killer'.

But what else can we expect to learn about Bundy from the show? Judging from some of the details we've been teased, we're going to be in for a pretty creepy ride...

According to Cosmopolitan, we'll find out more about how strange Bundy's trial was - where he eventually confessed to 30 murders after killing and raping numerous young women and girls throughout the 1970s, but detectives feared the true number could have been higher.

For starters, he chose to represent himself in court, as he was trying to become a lawyer - which meant things often took a slightly weird turn.

But on top of that, women also apparently kept rocking up to the courtroom because they were so fascinated by Bundy, with many even hoping to pass notes to him.

In Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, we see some of the women being interviewed, who explain to the press that while they were 'terrified' of the killer, they were still very interested in him.

"What he really had in mind was a celebrity bio," explained Stephen Michaud, a journalist who interviewed him.

While it wasn't just his adoring fans that could see Bundy's appeal - many others have said he seemed fairly personable and even 'charismatic' - interviews with his former high school peers reveal that he was actually quite a quiet teenager, who had no idea how to interact with others.

But the creepiest aspect of all? Bundy's girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, had actually called police to suggest that he might be the guy they were after at the time, when his first victims had started to go missing.

Chillingly, there wasn't enough evidence to take him down; when witnesses were shown photos of Bundy at the time, they were convinced it couldn't have been him, while Carol DaRonch, a survivor of one attack, faced scepticism when she identified Bundy in a line-up.
