Ahead of the premiere of A&E’s The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta next Thursday, realscreen presents an exclusive clip of the offshoot investigative series.
The ITV Entertainment-produced series (pictured) – a spin-off of A&E’s flagship reality docuseries The First 48 – shadows detectives within the Atlanta Police Department as they tackle some of the city’s most gripping crimes.
Over the course of six episodes, The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta will follow the detectives working to solve the murder of a young woman found naked and shot to death in a neighborhood park. The program will trace the investigative team as they tirelessly work to find new clues and leads in the case, dubbed “Fallen Angel,” that could bring about justice for the woman’s family.
In addition to the “Fallen Angel” case, the series will document detectives as they turn to “close-ended cases” in an attempt to unravel the mysteries behind some of the city’s most gruesome and highly visible crimes.
The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta is produced by ITV Entertainment. ITV’s David Eilenberg and Alexis Robie serve as executive producers alongside A&E’s Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Peter Tarshis.
A&E holds worldwide distribution rights to the spin-off.
The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta premieres Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on A&E. Check out a preview below.
