New Donal MacIntyre-Led Series for CBS Reality


CBS Reality has commissioned Emporium Productions to produce the true-crime original series Donal MacIntyre’s Killer Evidence.

Renowned investigative journalist and criminologist Donal MacIntyre returns to the screen to host the series. Through ten U.K. and U.S. cases, the show will present how forensics will always uncover the “killer evidence” that brings murderers to justice.

Each story is told firsthand by the people who were there as the investigation unfolded, from the senior investigating police officers who were first on the crime scene to the forensic experts whose scientific knowledge helped secure conviction. It also features expert commentators, including leading forensic scientists Tracy Alexander, director of forensic services for the City of London Police; senior forensic scientist Jo Millington; forensic psychiatrist Dr. Sohom Das; digital forensic expert Andrew Sheldon; and pathologist Brett Lockyer, who guides the viewer every step of the way, examining the key pieces of evidence and how they helped catch the murderer.

Sam Rowden, VP of content and production at AMC Networks International—UK, said, “We’re excited to welcome back CBS Reality favorite Donal MacIntyre to host the seventh series we have commissioned from Emporium Productions. We always strive to find new and intriguing formats to showcase Donal MacIntyre’s vast knowledge of the true crime genre. In this series, he adds his criminology expertise alongside other top experts to provide in-depth analysis of the killer evidence.”

Emma Read, managing director at Emporium Productions, said, “We are thrilled to be making such a fascinating and revealing series with leading crime expert Donal MacIntyre and our partners Rainmaker Content for CBS Reality. Hearing firsthand from the men and women whose diligence and scientific expertise led to the conviction of brutal murderers, thanks to their killer evidence, helps us discover the intricate detail of how cases are built. It’s also clear that what makes an international hit is the focus on the fascinating developments in forensics, and that’s exactly what this series is about.’
