Monday at 10 p.m. on HBO

On HBO's "American Undercover" series, filmmaker Nick Broomfield revisits the case of serial killer Aileen Wuornos, who was arrested in 1991 in the murders of seven men in Florida. She was executed on Oct. 9, 2002.

Broomfield's original documentary recounted the corruption and incompetence surrounding her case and trial. The new film looks at her abusive past life and suggests that "we are executing a person who is mad," which Broomfield finds "very disturbing."

Several films have been made about Wuornos, including the 2003 theatrical film "Monster." In 1992, Broomfield made a documentary, "Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer." Another broadcast film starred Jean Smart in the title role.

New Animated Series Come to Cartoon Network

Cartoon Network launches two original animated series this week -- one for kids and one for adults.

"Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi" follows the fictional adventures of two real-life Japanese pop stars as they travel from gig to gig or just hang out in Tokyo.

The show also features live-action segments starring the real-life Puffy AmiYumi as well as the group's catchy hits. It airs on Fridays at 7:30 p.m.

"Tom Goes to the Mayor," part of the cable network's Adult Swim block, features fictional Tom Peters, a civic do-gooder in a small town.

Peters brings his eccentric ideas to the mayor, who unfailingly supports them -- with expensive and disastrous results.

It's written and produced by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, who also provide voices for the two main characters. Guest stars, including Jeff Goldblum, will voice the town's assortment of oddballs and bureaucrats.

It airs on Sundays at 11:30 p.m.
