New CBS Reality Commission Murder: Fight for the Truth


CBS Reality has commissioned the U.K.-based factual and non-scripted specialist Phoenix Television to produce Murder: Fight for the Truth.

The 10×1-hour series reveals the stories of heroes who went the extra mile when the odds were stacked against them to crack murder cases and bring killers to justice. Each episode is authored by the hero who drove the search for justice and was instrumental in solving the case.

The series is set to premiere on April 6 at 10 p.m.

Sam Rowden, VP of content and production at AMC Networks International – UK, said, “Murder: Fight for the Truth has a unique perspective on murder cases because it allows us to champion and celebrate the work of extraordinary people – both professionals and family members—who were determined to solve the murder case they were involved with, and get justice. This new series underscores our commitment to delivering compelling original true crime programming on CBS Reality in the U.K.”

Jaimi West, founding partner at Phoenix, said, “This highly emotive and deeply personal series reveals how brave, determined and passionate people were compelled to embark on their own fight for the truth and get it.”
