ID Orders Two Arrow Media Crime Series


Arrow Media is expanding its relationship with Investigation Discovery (ID), which has commissioned the crime series The Devil Speaks and the murder mystery show What Lies Beneath.

The agreement sees Arrow’s portfolio of Investigation Discovery programming grow to more than 100 hours. The new shows join Arrow Media titles that are already on ID, including See No Evil, American Monster, What Lies Beneath and The Devil Speaks. There is also an unnamed series in production.

The Devil Speaks features some of America’s most thrilling real-life murder investigations. What Lies Beneath, meanwhile, uses real courtroom footage to hint at what events will unfold in the retelling of brutal crimes.

Sam Starbuck, executive producer at Arrow Media, said, “The real emotion and nail-biting jeopardy of true-crime stories make for some of the most compelling content on TV. We now have a huge amount of expertise—not just in finding the best of these stories, but telling them in the most visceral and gripping way possible. Arrow’s forte is using real footage. It’s difficult to track down and sometimes even more difficult to get access to, but it’s the key in bringing these stories to life with genuine power and authenticity.

“Investigation Discovery is one of the most successful genre channels in the world and our crime content gets a global audience through the channel’s huge reach. We are delighted to be growing our relationship with them.”
