Of the show, it added: "Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer reframes Bundy’s crimes from a female perspective – uncovering the disturbing and profound way in which Bundy’s pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the seventies, culminating in what is perhaps the most infamous true-crime saga of our time."

Elizabeth previously spoke about her romance with Bundy in her 1981 book, The Phantom Prince: My Life With Ted Bundy.

It's being updated and released alongside the documentary in January.

Zac Efron played the killer in the recent Ted Bundy film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Vile and Evil, while Elizabeth was portrayed by Lily Collins.
