Discovery-owned true crime cable net Investigation Discovery (ID) is set to launch a new series about interrogating witnesses in murder cases.
The previously-announced The Interrogator features the case files of host Fil Waters (pictured), a former Houston homicide detective whose 96% case closure rate is among the highest in the country.
The six-part series follows Waters as he walks viewers through his most shocking cases, showing how his detective work has allowed him to convince prime suspects to lower their guard and reveal answers that the police never saw coming.
The Interrogator is produced by Stephen David Entertainment for ID, in association with Marabella Productions. Stephen David and Mark Marabella serve as executive producers, with Lori Siegel, Tim Kelly and Jonathan Soule as co-executive producers, and Max Grater as producer. For ID, Jeanie Vink is executive producer, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Kevin Bennett is GM and Henry Schleiff is group president of ID, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America.
“At ID, we pride ourselves on having the most talented and dedicated law enforcement officers on the air, and Detective Fil Waters is no exception,” said Schleiff in a statement. “Having helped to solve over 400 cases involving murder, Detective Waters has used his unique instinct and tactical interrogation skills to elicit confessions – and, in this new and informative series, he tells us how he did it.”
The Interrogator premieres Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ID.
