ITN Productions has been recommissioned to make Cops Gone Bad for A+E Networks EMEA, set to premiere on Crime+Investigation and Crime+Investigation Play in 2024.
Presented by actor and presenter Will Mellor and co-produced by ITN Productions and Krempelwood, the new series (7×60) follows on from Cops Who Kill.
Cops Gone Bad will include seven new cases and this time will not only be exposing cops who have killed, but also fraudsters, swindlers, sexual predators and drug dealers. Will is back with a team of experts including retired Detective Chief Inspector Howard Groves and forensic psychologist Serena Simmons. Joining them is former Detective Chief Superintendent Sue Hill.
Will Mellor said, “I’m really pleased to be back for Cops Gone Bad. In this series we’ll be examining cases of corrupt officers from the UK, US and Australia, and whilst the majority of cops do an amazing job every day, it’s important to hold those that don’t, to account.”
The series was commissioned and executive produced by Dan Korn, VP of Programming at A+E Networks EMEA, with Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor and Head of Talent at A+E Networks EMEA.
Dan Korn, VP of Programming, said, ‘’At a time when police conduct is under greater scrutiny than ever, Crime+Investigation is leading the way in exploring cases from the recent past which reveal where and how the many problems in policing culture have emerged”.
Caroline Short, Executive Producer for ITN Productions, said: “We are delighted to work alongside Will Mellor and Crime and Investigation on this series which exposes wrongdoing from those in a position of power and trust.”
Blair Krempel and Mark Wood, Executive Producers for Krempelwood, said: “Having funded the successful series Cops Who Kill, we’re delighted to be back working with ITN Productions and Crime + Investigation in financing Cops Gone Bad; we love a returning series.”
