Investigation Discovery has greenlighted the new series Guilty Rich from CMJ Productions, a prodco specializing in factual series.

In the Guilty Rich, each episode follows the story of a super-rich criminal and the excessive lifestyle that went to their heads. The show reveals how, at least when it comes to crime, the very rich really aren’t like the rest of us. Guilty Rich offers a peek into the world of ultra-wealth that audiences might never otherwise experience.

The new series agreement broadens CMJ Productions current relationship with ID. CMJ Productions’ A Stranger in My Home has aired on ID for three seasons and Fatal Vows will begin its fifth season on the network this coming spring. The deal comes on the heels of Montreal-based Attraction’s recent acquisition of CMJ Productions.

Guilty Rich - by incorporating unprecedented access to the excessive lifestyles of the ultra-rich via conversations with gossipy friends, hit men, drug dealers and realtors who know them best, the series represents a new page for our company in the crime-themed storytelling genre,” said CMJ Productions CEO and executive producer John Kuyk, in a statement.

Guilty Rich will premiere on ID in fall 2017.
