One of the most talked-about murder cases that hasn't yet gone to trial will get some air time this weekend.

"Drew Peterson: Untouchable" airs at 7 p.m. Saturday on Lifetime. It follows the "fall from grace" of Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant charged with the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, whose body was found in a waterless bathtub in 2004.

His fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, mysteriously vanished in 2007 and has not been found.

Peterson has been jailed in Will County since 2009, and a spokeswoman at the Will County Detention Center told the Chicago Tribune he might not be able to watch the movie.

His pod at the jail only has six televisions, turned to the same channel, and the on-duty officer has control of the remote, the spokeswoman said.

Rob Lowe and Kaley Cuoco star as the Petersons in the movie based on Joseph Hosey's book, "The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson."

Drew Peterson told local reporters he found the online trailer for the Lifetime movie 'hilarious.'
