Each stand alone film in this new true crime series investigates three shocking murders, where the victim and perpetrator are family, telling stories of ordinary relationships that take extraordinary and ultimately tragic turns.
Using found footage - from victim’s social media videos and police bodycam film, text messages or call recordings, each story is pieced together from the victim’s point of view, without voiceover, allowing the victim, friends and family to tell their stories in their own immediate and intimate way.
From Knickerbockerglory TV, the makers of Netlix’s most watched documentary, American Murder: the Family Next Door, this new series for ITVX provides a vivid insight into the nature of murders committed within families and the impact on those left behind.
As the series will show, in some family’s lives, behind the veil of smiling social media posts and daily texts, a true horror story is brewing. These murders aren’t ‘crimes of passion’ but premeditated acts of control or revenge, leaving behind a family blown apart.
A Murder In the Family [w/t] is a Knickerbockerglory production.
