"Crime" was created by Carles Porta and produced by Goroka and True Crime Factory, the news comes just a year after the distributor deemed the true crime series the most successful of its kind in Spain, and introduced its to the global market following successful runs on TV3 and Movistar.
The latest season of the series, premiered on TV3 this year, has surpassed all historical audience records, with a 30.9% share in its first episode and over a million viewers, with more than 35% of them being a young audience."The great success that Crimes has achieved in Spain since the airing of its first episode has attracted the attention of many international buyers," Carlos Garde, General Manager of Onza said.
"It is a true crime series that has succeeded due to its high production quality and the public's interest in these stories," Garde said. "We have witnessed that it is an addictive show that captivates the viewer and keeps them on edge until the very end.This true crime series covers over 40 real crimes from the past 10 years, and unlike other series in the same genre, it doesn't feature experts discussing the crimes. Instead, it is the actual protagonists who narrate their involvement in the events, either because they experienced them firsthand or investigated them. Thus, Crimes aims to shed light on the darkness through the direct or indirect testimonies of those who lived through each of these stories."
