U.S. cable net AMC has tapped ABC legal analyst and author Dan Abrams to front a series of documentary shorts looking at real-life murder mysteries, to tie-in with the launch of its original drama series The Killing (pictured).

The six Crimes That Captivated The Country shorts, each three- to five-minutes long, will run nightly this month, through to April 2, featuring a new unsolved mystery each night.

Among the cases to be examined are the 1996 Jon Benet Ramsey murder, the 1970s Alphabet Murders, the late 1960s Zodiac Killer case, and the infamous Black Dahlia case.

The Killing, an adaptation of the popular Danish television series Forbrydelsen, tells the story of the murder of a teenage girl and the subsequent police investigation.
