U.S. cable net Reelz has set an August debut for its crime series, Murder Made Me Famous.

The AMS Pictures-produced series will examine killers who have attained public notoriety for their crimes. Presented by author and People Magazine crime reporter Steve Helling (pictured), each one-hour episode will expose the criminal details of convicted murderers, including Jordan van der Sloot, Ted Bundy, Drew Peterson, Erik and Lyle Menendez and Scott Peterson.

The series will take an in-depth look at each crime through recreations that interweave archival footage with commentary from those directly connected to the case, including victims’ family members, jurors, law enforcement and journalists.

The premiere episode will focus on the transgressions of convicted killer Jodi Arias, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole following the stabbing and shooting death of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

Reelz’ factual slate includes such titles as Autopsy: The Last Hours Of…Hollywood Scandals and Beverly Hills Pawn.

Murder Made Me Famous is set to premiere on Reelz on August 15 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
