Killers: Caught on Camera was co-developed by Blue Ant International and back2back productions and produced by back2back and CBS Reality.

Killers: Caught on Camera is a captivating original true-crime co-production, and we are confident that it will be another favorite among this genre’s audience,” said Max Einhorn, senior VP of acquisitions and co-productions at FilmRise. “We look for productions inside reliable genres yet offer unique twists. With Killers: Caught on Camera, the ‘cam show’ has a frightening new format.”
