U.S. cable network Investigation Discovery (ID) has acquired English-speaking TV rights for two true crime projects from eOne Television, including 90-minute documentary Pig Farm.

The doc tells the gruesome story of Canadian serial killer Robert ‘Willie’ Pickton, on whose pig farm the remains of more than 60 women were found.

ID has also picked up The Devil You Know, a doc promising an insight to the criminal mind by exposing the true stories behind men and women who have wreaked havoc on the lives of their victims and their loved ones.

The acquisitions follow the sale of eOne’s Very Bad Men to the network.
