October Films has been commissioned to make Investigation Discovery's first foray into scripted programming with Serial Thriller, a three-part miniseries event that "propels viewers into the heart of a community terrorised by a real-life serial killer."

The series will "delve into the untold personal stories of the residents, the victims and those in charge of the criminal investigation as investigators decode the mystery of one of America’s most notorious serial killers – and try to capture him before he kills again."

The murderer’s identity will be a mystery leaving viewers to unravel the clues from episode to episode.
“Serial Thriller is truly a tent-pole series for ID with the exciting new scripted serial format that enhances our already suspenseful programming,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President at Discovery. “For the first time ever, ID provides viewers with the experience of watching an engaging and chilling scripted drama as seen through our authentic, true-crime filter – one that keeps our fans coming back over and over again.”
The show will premiere on ID in summer 2015 and is also being distributed as a theatrical release to the global market. It is produced for Investigation Discovery by October Films with Matt Robins, Steve Murphy and Lindsay Shapero as executive producers and is written and directed by Jamie Crawford. For Investigation Discovery, Eugenie Vink is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
