A+E Networks UK has recommissioned the five-part true-crime series “Killer Britain with Dermot Murnaghan” for Crime+Investigation, produced by award-winning true crime specialists FirstLookTV. The series will air every night at 9 PM across a week in October.
Hosted and curated by one of the UK’s best-known journalists, “Killer Britain with Dermot Murnaghan” explores the real stories and intrigue behind the headlines of those murder cases which make an indelible impression on the public consciousness. In each episode, Dermot Murnaghan recounts a case he has reported on or followed at close quarters, with his reflections and unique perspective illustrated with archive footage and punctuated by key interviews from those closest to the case, including family members, local journalists and the investigating officers who were first at the scene.
“Series one and two were incredibly well received by our knowledgeable and passionate audience. The authority that Dermot Murnaghan brings to this fascinating series is a big reason behind the success of 'Killer Britain' so far and we’re really excited to be teaming up with FirstLookTV once more for a third iteration of 'Killer Britain,' which will be premiering on Crime+Investigation later this year,” said Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor and Head of Talent at A+E Networks UK.
