U.S. net TNT has signed on for a spin-off of its docudrama Cold Justice (pictured), which will follow crime experts looking to close unresolved sex crimes.

Produced by Magical Elves and Wolf Reality – the same firms overseeing Cold Justice – the as-yet-untitled spin-off will have 10 episodes and air in spring of 2015.

Executive producers include Wolf Reality’s Dick Wolf, Magical Elves’ Dan CutforthJane Lipsitz and Tom Thayer, and Cold Justice expert Kelly Siegler.

The series will follow former Harris County, Texas, prosecutors Casey Garrett and Alicia O’Neill – both protégés of Cold Justice‘s Siegler - as they visit small towns around the country in order to solve dormant cases.

“This new Cold Justice series on sex crimes is about the healing that can come for survivors and their loved ones when an assailant is finally brought to justice,” said Siegler in a statement. “But it’s also about the bravery it takes for survivors of sexual assault to come forward and tell their stories, which in turn helps investigators close cases that can prevent the assailant from abusing others.”
