Crime+Investigation has commissioned a fourth season of Murdertown, which will be fronted by Emilia Fox (Silent Witness).
In each episode, Fox will visit towns and local communities throughout the U.K. rocked by murder and tragedies. Through the testimony of investigating police officers, local journalists, friends and relatives, the series delves into these shocking incidents and how the lives of those directly affected have changed forever.
Murdertown is produced by the Banijay UK company Workerbee for Crime+Investigation. The fourth season is slated to launch in early fall.
Dan Korn, VP of programming at A+E Networks UK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Murdertown and so excited to see what Emilia Fox will bring as the new host. Having played Dr Nikki Alexander for 18 years, Emilia and our team of expert contributors will provide a forensic view of 10 new cases from across the country. Murdertown is a unique show in that it takes a holistic look at the impact of horrific murders on the communities they occur in and embodies Crime+Investigation’s brand promise of ‘pursuing the truth.’”
Joel Orme, series producer for Murdertown, said: “We are delighted to be working with Emilia and the team at A+E Networks EMEA again. Murdertown is unique in the way that it looks at the lasting effect that the most awful of crimes have on those closest to the victims but also the wider community. With Emilia at the helm, the new series promises to be the most fascinating yet as we shine new light on ten more cases from across the U.K.”
