Murder By Numbers

Suspenseful. Creepy. Terrifying. Murder By Numbers begins with the discovery of a body and the onset of an intense investigation. After following the clues, investigators quickly focus on a very likely suspect. But just as the viewer eases into the standard procedure of a true-crime investigation through the eyes of detectives, plunge into yet another chilling, suspenseful, cinematic scene where a second body is discovered. This shocking revelation not only eliminates the original suspect, it sends the investigation on a harrowing journey into the depths of pure criminal evil.

Premieres July 12 at 1o p.m. ET/PT.


No shoes in the hall. No coffee in the pot. He was supposed to come in late, but when she woke that morning he was just gone. As the day went on, her unanswered calls grew more frantic, and her unease became panic. Something was wrong but the truth is even darker than it looks. Gone features twisted true stories of individuals who go missing and leave a trail of secrets in their wake and of frantic loved ones left behind who are often not who they seem. 

Premieres July 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Kiss of Death

Kiss of Death tells the true, heart-stopping stories of love gone wrong. Firsthand accounts examine how initial feelings of excitement, desire and passion escalate into the most unthinkable acts of crime. Suspicious signs, strange behaviors and red flags reveal that things are not as rosy as they seem. These ominous signs and clues are pieced together as each hour builds to a final, shocking, deadly act.

Premieres Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Guilty Rich

Guilty Rich is a voyeuristic peek into the world of ultra-wealth, scandal and entitlement. Each gripping episode tells the story of a super-rich killer by exposing the excessive lifestyle that went to their heads. Guilty Rich illustrates how when it comes to murder, the very rich aren’t like the rest of us.

Premieres Aug. 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

New episodes air Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Bad Blood
