Happy Face Killer smiles on Lifetime!

Happy Face Killer Lifetime

Guilty of being a man on the Lifetime Network! Oh, and all those murders I did!


When it comes to killing, do it with a smile! That’s what I’ve learned in all my years of watching movies where people get killed all the time, but barely anyone has fun doing it. It’s like people are bothered by all the heavy emotional tolls of murder or something. Luckily, Lifetime is bringing us an “inspired by real-life events” movie called Happy Face Killer. Where else can you watch David Arquette be a creepy murderer besides the movie See Spot Run? Luckily, Gloria Reuben is hunting him down, hunting him down like a dog. Named Spot.

Happy Face Killer premieres March 1st on Lifetime. And, yes, the creepo is a real guy, now behind bars forever.

Inspired by real-life events, “Happy Face Killer” follows the hunt and ultimate capture of serial killer Keith Hunter Jesperson. An aspiring cop turned long-haul truck driver after a failed marriage, Jesperson strangled his first victim following an argument and was back on the road again the very next day, killing at least eight women over a five-year span as he crisscrossed the country. Upset after a woman falsely confesses that she and her boyfriend are responsible for one of his murders, Jesperson begins to taunt the authorities by sending a series of disturbing letters to newspaper editors, even scribbling confessions on the walls of highway rest stops admitting that he loved killing his victims. By signing his morbid notes with a happy face, he earned himself the notorious nickname, “Happy Face Killer” and forever left his mark of fear.

“Happy Face Killer” is produced by Happy Face Productions/Front Street Pictures and executive produced by Tom Patricia (“Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story”) and produced by Harvey Kahn (“Abducted: The Carlina White Story”). The script was written by Richard Christian Matheson (Stephen King’s “Nightmares and Dreamscapes”) and directed by Rick Bota (“Beauty and the Beast”).
