Oxygen Greenlights True-Crime Title from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos


Oxygen is set to expand its slate with true-crime projects from Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos as well as BuzzFeed News.

Exhumed, produced by Milojo Productions with Consuelos, Ripa and Albert Bianchini serving as executive producers, examines a murder case in which unearthing a victim’s body is the vehicle in solving the crime. Produced by Pulse Films and BuzzFeed News, The Case Died With Her sees legal commentator and former prosecutor Loni Coombs diving into the case of Emilie Morris, a woman in her 30’s who suffered an untimely death after bringing charges against Jim Wilder for sexually inappropriate behavior when she was a minor.

Oxygen has also greenlit the MY Entertainment-produced The Jane Doe Murders with crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary and season two of Injustice with Nancy Grace, produced by The Intellectual Property Corporation in conjunction with KT Studios and TAP Inc.

Rod Aissa, executive VP of original programming for Oxygen and E! Production, said: “We’re excited to announce the greenlight of these new and returning series that feature super compelling topics and key voices from within the genre. In 2020, Oxygen is increasing its original programming by double digits, maintaining our commitment in delivering premium true-crime content for our passionate fan base of armchair detectives.”

Ripa and Consuelos added: “As diehard true crime fans, we are thrilled to be partnering with Oxygen on Exhumed. We cannot wait to dig into these fascinating cases and showcase how exhumations have been crucial in solving crimes and bringing closure to families across America.”
