Montreal-based factual producer CMJ Productions has reached a talent agreement with private investigator Monica Jordan to star in the prodco’s next unscripted true crime series.
The series is being developed in partnership with true-crime author and investigative journalist Steve Miller, who the company reached a development deal with last month.
Each episode of the series follows the veteran private investigator as she pries open closed murder cases for a closer look. Viewers will follow Jordan’s every step as she tracks each renewed investigation, leading to her confronting killers in a tell-all interview format.
Jordan has over 25 death row trials under her belt and has worked some of the most cringe-worthy crimes including murder, sexual battery and other life-sentence felonies. She’s worked cases with street gangs, motorcycle clubs, drug dealers and serial killers.
Jordan has also helped defend well-known figures such as lNFL quarterback Jameis Winston and country music singer Mindy McCready. Other high profile cases have included: Rachel Hoffman, Claude Duboc and David Allen Gore.
“Monica usually operates behind the scenes, finding witnesses and uncovering new and vital information. But her tenacious investigative style coupled with her street smarts, make her the perfect larger-than-life character to develop a show around,” said CMJ Productions president Judith Beauchemin, “She’s a wife and soccer mom when off the beat, but she’s also a hard as nails PI who’s flipped more snitches than anyone else in the business.”
The title and air date of the series is yet to be announced.
