Oxygen is slated to air The DNA of Murder with Paul Holes this fall with a 90-minute premiere on the NBCUniversal-owned women-targeted true crime channel.

The series is produced by NBCUniversal’s docuseries-focused prodco Wilshire Studios. Leane Vandeman, Jessica Grimshaw and Paul Holes serve as executive producers.

The DNA of Murder with Paul Holes follows the retired cold case investigator as he dives into unsolved homicides by analyzing the physical and emotional ‘DNA’ left behind during a violent interaction.

In an effort to zero in on the perpetrator, Holes leverages the latest technological advancements from familial and genetic genealogy to latent fingerprint and DNA phenotyping.

Holes travels around the U.S. working with local investigators and experts, including Loni Coombs, Yolanda McClary and Laura Richards, to explore new theories, potential suspects and evidence.

The 90-minute premiere delves into a 1980 murder in Willamsburg, Iowa, where two hotel guests were found bludgeoned to death in their room at a Holiday Inn.

Each subsequent hour-long episode will focus on a new murder, including: a young woman found stabbed to death along railroad tracks in Kansas City; the murder of a socialite in Georgia; a man found dead in his home after answering an online post for a renter; the homicide of a nun; and a grandmother stabbed to death in her home.

The DNA of Murder with Paul Holes airs Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
