U.S. net Investigation Discovery and Canada’s Slice have commissioned six-part crime doc series See No Evil, which examines murders solved using closed-circuit television footage.

The 6 x 60-minute show is being made by Canada’s Saloon Media and UK indie Arrow Media, and marks Saloon’s second commission for Shaw Media-owned Slice, following its Brightspark coproduction Handsome Devils.

Each episode of the series will use genuine CCTV video from each of the cases, to show the crimes unfolding and piece together how the murders happened.

The exec producers are Michael Kot for Saloon Media and Thomas Viner for Arrow Media, and the show will be distributed by eOne, which is taking it to MIPCOM nest week.

In a statement, Viner said: “With 30 million surveillance cameras in North America, we are increasingly living in a surveillance society. See No Evil taps into this using a blend of real-life CCTV and home surveillance footage with dramatic reconstruction, revealing some of the most compelling murder cases.”
