True crime network Investigation Discovery is readying a six-part series that looks to break open cases long gone cold.

Produced by Main Event Media and All3Media America, Breaking Homicide (6 x 120 minutes; pictured) follows former Rhode Island Police Sergeant Derrick Levasseur and forensic psychologist Kris Mohandie as they attempt to investigate six unsolved murders at the request of victims’ families.

The cold case series will follow Levasseur and Mohandie as they chase down new clues in hopes of breaking open these decades-old crimes. Through the use of advanced technology, the investigators meticulously dissect each piece of evidence, in some cases, unearthing new leads.

“Over the last 10 years, Investigation Discovery has received countless calls and emails from viewers about local cold cases that have never been solved; Breaking Homicide is our answer to those often-desperate requests for help,” said Henry S. Schleiff, group president for ID, American Heroes Channel and Destination America, in a statement.

“Derrick and Kris use their decades of experience and the fierce tenacity we first saw with their critically acclaimed work on ID’s Is O.J. Innocent? The Missing Evidence special to shine a new light on these tragic crimes where the killers remain at-large and communities search for the closure they deserve.”

Breaking Homicide premieres April 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode will be followed by IDGO’s digital series Breaking Homicide: Final Theory at 11 p.m. ET/PT, which provides updates and the latest breaks in the case.

For Main Event Media and All3Media America, Jimmy Fox, Greg Lipstone and Layla Smith are executive producers on the series, with Star Price as showrunner.

For Investigation Discovery, Lorna Thomas is senior executive producer and Elizabeth Stephenson is coordinating producer.
