Michael Bay Inks TV Deal with Investigation Discovery


Filmmaker Michael Bay (the Transformers franchise, 13 Hours, Armageddon) has entered into a partnership with Investigation Discovery (ID) to executive produce a new true-crime docuseries.

The series will expose a terrifying, yet little known, true-crime story and is set to premiere in 2024.

“I’m a storyteller at heart; I’m fascinated by the human mind and exploring what makes each of us tick,” Bay said. “When you approach documenting real-life crime from that perspective, the end result is always intriguing. Known for the caliber of their programming, Investigation Discovery’s expertise in unscripted true crime is second to none, and I can’t wait to expose one of the most twisted crimes of the century.”

“When Michael Bay first approached us to collaborate on a true-crime project, we instantly knew we wanted to join forces,” said Jason Sarlanis, president of crime and investigative content, linear and streaming. “Michael Bay is an incredibly dynamic filmmaker and producer whose vision and storytelling appeals to audiences far and wide. This partnership will be the perfect addition to our blockbuster nights on ID.”
