A+E Networks UK has commissioned a fourth season of Killer Britain with Dermot Murnaghan for Crime + Investigation.
Produced by FirstLookTV, the series explores British murder stories filled with intrigue and chilling storylines. In each episode, Murnaghan recounts a case he reported on or followed at close quarters and features interviews with victims’ family members and the investigating officers.
Cases covered in the fourth season include the murder of Vera Hudson by Mark Jewitt; the killing of Libby Squire by Pawel Relowicz; the case of Ben Geen, who murdered two of his patients; and the murder of Shafilea Ahmed by her parents, Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed.
The new ten-part season is set to debut on Crime + Investigation in February 2022. Executive producers are FirstLookTV’s Will Hanrahan and Gill Carter.
Diana Carter, commissioning editor and head of talent at A+E Networks UK, said: “Killer Britain with Dermot Murnaghan has been a huge hit with our audience, so working with true leaders in their field, FirstLookTV, on an extended run for Killer Britain for Crime + Investigation is incredibly exciting. Viewers can expect an even better finished product for the fourth run of the series, with Dermot Murnaghan bringing his trademark storytelling style to the fore.”
Hanrahan added: “This distinctive series has proved hugely popular with viewers who enjoy the combination of Dermot’s authority and FirstLook’s engaging and sensitive storytelling. It has proved popular in the U.S., too, and the franchise is ready to roll out in other territories with local hosts. Dermot and the C+I team have helped in producing a winning series.”
