Discovery Communications-owned channel Investigation Discovery has set a late April air date for Cream Productions’ college-focused true crime series Murder U (pictured).
The six-part series is to feature firsthand accounts from the key players involved in American criminal and murder cases that have struck college campuses across the country. In addition to first-person testimonials, the series will offer in-depth interviews with faculty, family and friends of the victim.
Each episode of the series will tell the story of fatal crimes committed by unsuspecting culprits, from a tale of young romance gone wrong at the University of Florida to troubles on a college debate team at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and fallout between fraternity brothers at the University of Maryland.
Murder U is scheduled to premiere in the U.S. on April 20 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Investigation Discovery, and in Canada on Blue Ant Media’s Travel+Escape on April 19 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
In addition to Murder U, Cream also produces Investigation Discovery’s true crime series Fear Thy Neighbor, which explores deadly disputes between neighbors and is currently in its third season.
