CBS Reality in the UK’s spring slate includes a new 10-part true crime series, New Scotland Yard Files, from ITN Productions, set to premiere on March 12.
Boasting unprecedented access, the series examines the most mysterious and intriguing murders in London. New Scotland Yard detectives share the inside stories of how they caught some of the most notorious killers.
Featuring archival footage from ITN Productions, reconstructions and interviews, each episode follows a murder investigation, and cases include the Stockwell Strangler, who targeted elderly men and women, and the murder of former pop star Michael Menson.
The series is presented by New Scotland Yard detective Peter Bleksley (pictured), and includes contributions from the journalists who covered the stories, criminologists and forensic specialists.
“The detectives we worked with gave us details of the investigations and evidence previously only seen in court, so viewers will get a unique insight into the way New Scotland Yard solved these high profile murders,” said ITN Productions’ executive producer Sarah-Jane Cohen, in a statement.
In addition, CBS Reality will bring back two returning series in March, including season two of The Real Prime Suspect on March 17, following former Met police officer Jackie Malton examining 10 murder cases; and season three of forensics series Evidence of Evil on March 18.
