It's been two and a half years since disgraced Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed by rebel fighters during the uprising in that country.

As the country struggles to move past his four decades of brutal rule, new details are still coming to light about the dictator's abuses of power.

A new documentary premiering on Showtime explores those details. It's called Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi. Executive Producer Roy Ackerman joins the show to discuss the making of the film.
