How much time passed between Amy Fisher’s shooting of Mary Jo Buttafuoco and the premiere of the TV-movies on the subject?

Less than eight months had gone by when the three network television movies on the “Long Island Lolita” shooting aired.

The teenaged Fisher shot Buttafuoco, wife of her alleged lover Joey, on May 19, 1992, in Massapequa, Long Island.

The NBC, CBS, and ABC TV-movies aired in the week from December 28, 1992, to January 3, 1993. All three earned high ratings.
