A+E Networks UK has commissioned a new eight-part true crime series, Murder at My Door with Kym Marsh for Crime + Investigation.
The series is produced by Woodcut Media and is scheduled to air in the UK on Crime + Investigation this Autumn.
Hosted by former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh, Murder at My Door with Kym Marsh explores cases of innocent people murdered in their own homes by someone they thought they could trust and, in some cases, had known for many years. The series delves into the stories of those that unknowingly opened their door to evil with tragic consequences, as told through the eyes of those they left behind.
The eight-part series has been 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. Koulla Anastasi brokered the deal on behalf of Woodcut Media. Four of the episodes are set to premiere later this year, with the second tranche of four, in 2021.
Diana Carter said: “We’re thrilled to collaborate with the great team at Woodcut Media on this project. Murder at My Door with Kym Marsh tells these important stories from new perspectives and breathes life into what, for many, was a passing newspaper headline, but which has left scars and fissures for those involved which endure to this day.”
Executive Producers for Woodcut Media are Matthew Gordon and Koulla Anastasi, with Guy Templeton (Heists, A Town and Country Murder Season 3) as Series Producer.
Matthew Gordon said: “We are delighted to be teaming-up again with A+E Networks and Crime + Investigation to produce a series that highlights some truly harrowing cases these individuals could never
have foreseen. Sensitivity surrounding the victims’ family and friends has also been paramount during filming in order to relay these stories in their raw form, to create compelling viewing but with integrity.”
