Sky Goes for Fourth Season of Woodcut True-Crime Series


Sky is going for a fourth season of Woodcut Media’s true-crime series Britain’s Most Evil Killers and its international counterpart World’s Most Evil Killers to air in the U.K. and Ireland.

The ten-episode fourth season burrows deep into the real-life stories of the world’s most shocking and terrifying killers. The new season will cover the likes of Harold Shipman, Robert Napper, Robert Ben Rhoades (The Truck Stop Killer), Richard Chase (The Vampire of Sacramento) and many more, offering first-hand accounts from the detectives working on the cases, those who reported the stories, as well as contributions from relatives and some of the survivors.

Fred Dinenage (The Krays, The Richardsons, Murder Casebook, Fritzl) is returning to narrate the series. The show is executive produced by Woodcut’s Jinal Patel and distributed internationally by Keshet International, which has sold multiple seasons of World’s Most Evil Killers to Reelz and the Justice Network in the U.S., Bell Media in Canada and Foxtel in Australia, among many others.

Koulla Anastasi, director of international development at Woodcut Media, said, “The appetite for true crime continues across all platforms, and World’s Most Evil Killers has hit all the right notes internationally, especially in the U.S. The series offers shocking stories, powerfully and sensitively told that deliver on all the crucial attributes of the best crime storytelling, and we are delighted to be working with Sky and Keshet once again.”
