A+E Networks UK has commissioned talent management, live promotion and television production group Avalon to produce a true crime series for its Crime+Investigation strand.

Each episode of What the Killer Did Next (8 x 60 minutes) will open with a murder and seeks to understand the killer’s motives by examining what they did after the crime. The series is hosted by Philip Glenister (pictured), who played DCI Gene Hunt on the BBC series Life on Mars.

The eight-part series was ordered by Dan Korn, VP of programming at A+E Networks UK. It is executive produced by Diana Carter for A+E Networks UK and Jamie Isaacs for Avalon.

“As DCI Gene Hunt, Philip was arguably one of the most iconic, no-nonsense policemen in British TV history and we are delighted he’ll be sharing these shocking and surprising contemporary psychological detective stories, while also offering new insight into the fascinating practices employed during cutting edge police work,” said Isaacs, in a statement.
