UK indie Woodcut Media has begun work on a new 10 x 60-minute true crime series for Sky Crime UK called The Killer Within. The first episode lands this April.
The series examines what turns someone into a murderer, using true stories to try to better understand the motivations behind these horrible crimes. Whether premeditated or spontaneous, it looks to discover what causes someone to carry out such an act and delves into the mind and experiences of killers to try to learn more.
The Killer Within was commissioned by Emily-Jayne Wilde, programming lead at Sky Crime and Sky Witness. Executive producers are Kate Beal and Matthew Gordon, with Katie McDougall serving as series producer (Woodcut Media). The series is being distributed internationally by Woodcut International.
Kate Beal, CEO, Woodcut Media notes, “There are killers whose motives can be tracked to their upbringing or a specific incident, however others have completely baffled investigators. This illuminating series really examines the driving forces behind some of the most horrific murders and with some surprising results. We are really looking forward to its debut on Sky Crime next month and fans of the crime genre will not be disappointed.”
