Arrow Media has hired Sam Starbuck as an executive producer who will oversee the independent production company’s true crime slate.

Starbuck (pictured) previously was at Raw TV as a showrunner for National Geographic’s military docuseries No Man Left Behind. She also worked on programs and series for the BBC and Nutopia. Her credits include Syfy’s cult horror docuseries Paranormal Witness, Sky Atlantic’s history docuseries The British and ITV’s Britain’s Biggest Adventures with Bear Grylls.

Starbuck will report directly to Arrow co-founder and joint creative director Tom Brisley.

The UK-based production company has unveiled its true crime slate for Investigate Discovery in the U.S., which includes a third season of See No Evil, which is co-produced with Canada-based production company Saloon Media. Arrow will also produce series two of American Monster (10×60) about the double lives of America’s most terrifying monsters before they are captured.

American Monster and series three of See No Evil will be distributed internationally by eOne. It was commissioned by Investigation Discovery US and Bell Media’s French-language broadcaster, Canal D in Canada.

“Following the great success Arrow has had with See No Evil and American Monster, we’re delighted to extend our relationship with Investigation Discovery and create even more captivating true crime programming. As we continue to build on our heritage of innovative storytelling and push the boundaries within the genre, Sam is the perfect candidate to help fuel our ambitions. She has unrivaled experience in producing high quality factual programming and really understands how to tell a story in the most immersive ways for viewers,” said Brisley, in a statement.
