Viacom-owned Spike TV has teamed up with Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger for a new series about the deaths and disappearances of six young women in southern Ohio.
Produced by RadicalMedia in association with Third Eye Motion Picture Company, Gone: The Forgotten Women of Ohio examines the mysterious disappearance of these women in a struggling Midwest region plagued by drug and sex trafficking, and a system that seems to have failed to protect them.
Over the past three years, four of the victims’ bodies have been discovered, while two women remain missing, leaving residents in the small town of Chillicothe terrified and local authorities baffled. The investigation, which is still active and happening in real time, has extended to additional cities in the region as the body count has expanded beyond the original six.
Berlinger (pictured) serves as director and executive producer on the series. Jon Kamen, Dave O’Connor, and Justin Wilkes are executive producers for RadicalMedia and Catharine Park also served as executive producer and directed two episodes. Justin Lacob, vice president, Original Series is overseeing the series for the network.
Gone: The Forgotten Women Of Ohio premieres July 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on SpikeTV.
