A+E Networks UK brand Crime+Investigation has recommissioned its most successful ever series, "Murdertown", for a fourth season of ten episodes hosted by award-winning actress Emilia Fox. In each episode, she will visit towns and local communities throughout the UK rocked by murder and tragedies, from which the scars persist to this day.
"Murdertown" is a Workerbee (part of Banijay UK) production, exclusively for Crime+Investigation. The Series 1 premiered in 2018 became the brand’s highest-ever rated commission, and the second season in 2019 exceeded even that stellar performance. Murdertown 4 will be available in the early Autumn.
Dan Korn, VP Programming, A+E Networks® UK, said: ‘’We’re delighted to welcome back 'Murdertown' and so excited to see what Emilia Fox will bring as the new host. Having played Dr Nikki Alexander for 18 years, Emilia and our team of expert contributors will provide a forensic view of 10 new cases from across the country. 'Murdertown' is a unique show in that it takes a holistic look at the impact of horrific murders on the communities they occur in and embodies Crime+Investigation’s brand promise of ‘pursuing the truth’.”
Joel Orme, Series Producer "Murdertown", said: “We are delighted to be working with Emilia and the team at A+E Networks EMEA again. 'Murdertown' is unique in the way that it looks at the lasting effect that the most awful of crimes have on those closest to the victims, but also the wider community. With Emilia at the helm the new series promises to be the most fascinating yet as we shine new light on 10 more cases from across the UK.”
