New York-based Atlas Media Corp has signed an exclusive development deal with Lis Wiehl for true crime programming, based on her time as a former federal prosecutor and as an investigative journalist.

Wiehl is also a legal analyst and reporter, having appeared on Fox News, NBC News and NPR’s All Things Considered.

She is the author of 17 best-selling books, and is currently working on a new series of non-fiction thrillers, with the first, Hunting Charles Manson, out in the summer.

“Hired killers, murderous femme fatales, homicidal spouses—Lis came up against the most diabolical criminals during her years as a federal prosecutor—she knows this world better than anyone” said Bruce David Klein, Atlas’s president and executive producer, in a statement. “She’s also a seasoned crime writer and well-known television personality who knows how to spin a damn good story. We couldn’t be more excited to dig into the twisted world of true crime with her.”
