DYING FOR REVENGE: CHANNEL 5 COMMISSION NEW TRUE-CRIME SERIES
Channel 5 have commissioned new true crime series from WAG Entertainment. New eight-part series Dying For Revenge charts the stories of revenge crime.
From a worker humiliated by a colleague to a woman facing ruin when an ex-partner sells their home, the trigger events are different, but the consequences are the same: being wronged leads to murder.
Illustrated with evocative drama reconstruction, location filming and archive, each story is told through interviews with family and friends, insights from detectives who solved each case, and analysis from expert criminologists.
Also commissioned is a 5x60' series looking at true crime stories which start with the killer themselves contacting emergency services, plus the case of a murderer and his love who duped authorities for more than twenty years about the crime they had committed is the subject of a new two-part limited documentary series.
Bridget Boseley, Creative Director, Wag Entertainment said: "True crime is becoming an increasingly important part of Wag’s slate as we expand the number of genres we’re working in and the broadcasters and streamers we’re producing for. I’m delighted to be cementing our relationship with Channel 5 with these latest commissions."
Broadcast details will be revealed in due course.
