Arrow Media has been commissioned to make an eighth series of American Monster, for US true crime channel Investigation Discovery (ID).

As part of a bumper order, ID has also commissioned new productions Mary Kay Letourneau: Notes on a Scandal, a portrait of the illicit student-teacher relationship that gripped news stations across the US. And Who Killed Biggie and Tupac, a deep dive into a deadly feud between hip hop legends.

The order coincides with the return of See No Evil, also entering its eighth series, and Body Cam, returning for a fourth series.

American Monster goes beyond the scene of the crime and directly into the lives of some of America’s most shocking murderers, using home movie footage. See No Evil presents dramatic stories of crimes being solved with the aid of surveillance cameras. All three programmes rely on giving viewers access to new footage and the use of  technology to tell their stories. Body cam gives viewers their own eyewitness look at the decisions of police work, as told by officers’ own body camera footage.

ID is also the home of: Arrow Media’s feature-length documentary brand Mind of a Monster, which includes companion podcasts; the new six-part series Caught In The Net, which presents true stories of investigators entering the digital world to solve brutal murders; Love, Honor, Betray, telling stories of those duped by their partners in dark and devastating ways; as well as a whole host of its iconic crime, feature-length documentaries, such as JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened? and O.J. & Nicole: An American Tragedy.

American Monster is executive roduced by Nick Metcalfe and Tom Brisley for Arrow Media and executive produced by Tim Baney for ID. Body Cam is executive produced by Nick Metcalfe and Tom Brisley for Arrow Media and is executive produced by Thomas Cutler for ID. See No Evil is executive produced by Stuart Pender and Tom Brisley for Arrow Media and is executive produced by Keila Woodard for ID.
