U.S. cable net Investigation Discovery is to premiere Redrum, a crime series that plays out in reverse, on January 15 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
The show, produced by Stephen David Entertainment, was previously unveiled at the Discovery Communications Upfront presentation in April.
Redrum moves in reverse, beginning with a body being found, and going backwards reveals the killer and their motive using first person interviews and stylized recreations. Viewers will see false motives and mistaken witnesses, interviews from friends and family of the victim and sometimes the killer themselves.
Ahead of the premiere, ID and Grubwithus.com will bring together ID fans at murder mystery dinner events in cities across the U.S.
“As a destination for people who crave crime and mystery programming, we are always searching for innovative ways to tell our stories and keep our audience captivated,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. “Redrum brings a unique angle and to me, there’s nothing better for change than literally flipping the script.”
Stephen David Entertainment’s Stephen David and Randall Counsman serve as executive producers, while for Investigation Discovery, Keila Woodard is associate producer, Eugenie Vink is executive producer and Sara Kozak is senior VP of production.
