A+E Networks UK commissions "Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets"

The ten-part, true crime show produced by Zig Zag Productions is scheduled to debut on Crime+Investigation in the early Fall.


A+E Networks has commissioned "Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets."“We are thrilled to be working with Robert and A+E Networks UK on such a unique true crime series," Matt Graff, Managing Director at ZigZag Productions, said. "Delving into the world of interrogation rooms has been a real eye-opener and Robert brings not only the gravitas and personality but the legal acumen to make him the ideal host. We’re really looking forward to getting the reaction of Crime+Investigation’s true crime-loving audience and hope it’ll be a real hit.”

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. Produced by Zig Zag Productions and scheduled to debut on Crime+Investigation in the early Autumn, the ten-part series is presented by criminal barrister and television personality Robert Rinder, whose legal background makes him the perfect guide to the dark arts of interrogation.

The title showcases the battle of wits between police and suspects in some of the most disturbing US and UK criminal cases in recent years. Across ten episodes of Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets, a team of experts will analyse ten police interviews, in each of which the skilled work of detectives was key to cracking the case and securing a conviction.

 “As a criminal barrister I see the case details after detectives have forensically examined them, so to be able to go into the rarely seen territory of the interrogation room is incredibly exciting for me," Rinder said. "In each episode we highlight the strategies utilised by seasoned police investigators to obtain information from suspects which makes it a fascinating series. I hope Crime+Investigation®’s viewers enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The team provides insight into the minds of both suspects and interrogators as each seeks to gain the upper hand over the other. "'Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets' is a brilliantly fascinating and innovative concept which explores interrogation secrets through a selection of incredible experts who share their wealth of knowledge and unlock the hidden world of the interrogation room," Diana Carter said. "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.”  

Bomanbridge Media will contribute as the deficit and distribution partner with CEO Sonia Fleck leading the project for the company. “We are again really pleased to be teaming up with Zig Zag Productions as well as A+E Networks UK who own the crime and investigation space. Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets is a fresh new series with access to compelling stories; we are pleased to launch the show with great partners," Fleck said.
