True crime network Investigation Discovery has commissioned the new six-part sister series Hear No Evil from UK indie Arrow Media.

Hear No Evil (pictured; 6 x 60 minutes) uses archive material and authentic audio recorded at the crime scene as captured by victims’ families, investigators and the killers themselves to reconstruct each unlawful act.

The show is a sister series to See No Evilwhich uses CCTV as the central source material.

Each episode of Hear No Evil also features first-person testimony, dramatic reconstructions, video archive and computer graphics to complete the narrative that ultimately lead to murder.

“By building the series around audio rather than visual elements we are letting the viewer’s own imagination and instinctive fear of the unknown come to the fore,” said Tom Brisley, co-founder and joint creative director at Arrow Media, in a statement.

Arrow Media’s Brisley serves as creative director, with Sam Starbuck as executive producer and Tom Keeling as series producer. Investigation Discovery’s Liz Massie, meanwhile, is credited as executive producer.
