U.S. net Investigation Discovery (ID) is to premiere Optomen Productions’ Evil, I (pictured), a series which uses fictionalized first-person narration from the killer’s perspective, on June 15.

The 12-episode series uses court recordings, interviews and other audio samples to match a real-life killer’s vocal characteristics. In addition, Evil, I will feature interviews with family members and insight from detectives who cracked the case.

Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of ID, said the series would deliver the “the same spine-tingling narrative style” as ID shows such as Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets,“but with the added fear factor of the killer’s own voice being whispered directly in our viewers’ ears.”

Optomen’s Stephen McLaughlin, Nicola Moody and Dominic Stobart serve as executive producers. For ID, Thomas Cutler is exec producer and Sara Kozak is senior VP of production.
