A+E Networks UK has commissioned a new 10-part true-crime series that explores the battle of wits between police and suspects in some of the most disturbing criminal cases in the UK and U.S. in recent years.
Produced by Zig Zag Productions and slated to premiere on Crime+Investigation this fall, Rob Rinder’s Investigation Secrets is presented by criminal barrister and TV personality Robert Rinder (pictured), who takes viewers through the interrogation process that authorities employ with suspected perpetrators.
With a team of retired senior detectives from the U.S. and the UK, forensic and criminal psychologists and body language experts, Rinder examines original police footage of interrogations to reveal the tricks of the trade that law enforcement officers use to extract a confession. The team provides unique insights into the minds of both the suspects and the interrogators as each seeks to gain the upper hand.
Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets was ordered by Dan Korn, VP of programming at A+E Networks UK, and Diana Carter, commissioning editor and head of talent at A+E Networks UK. Bomanbridge Media is on board as the deficit and distribution partner, with CEO Sonia Fleck heading up the project for the distributor.
“Zig Zag Productions are true leaders in factual programming, and we’re confident their first-class production will be a huge hit with our audience, with Robert Rinder as the perfect presenter for the series,” A+E Networks UK’s Diana Carter said in a news release.
