Woodcut Media Prepping Two Crime Docuseries for Sky’s Pick


LONDON: Woodcut Media has inked a deal with Sky’s Pick channel to produce two crime documentary series: Britain’s Most Evil Killers and World’s Most Evil Killers.

The series are scheduled to premiere on Pick in early 2017. Britain’s Most Evil Killers and World’s Most Evil Killers look at some of the most dangerous murderers in the U.K. and around the world. The programs delve into what motivated these criminals to kill. Murderers covered in the series include Fred and Rose West, Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer, Marc Dutroux and Beverley Allitt, among others. Both series will be globally distributed by Keshet International.

“True crime is one of Woodcut’s key areas of expertise, and the genre continues to generate substantial interest worldwide,” said Kate Beal, the CEO of Woodcut Media. “We are delighted to announce our first deal with Pick, and look forward to delivering gripping series that highlight why these killers became so famous nationally and internationally.”

“Pick is committed to showing great crime television, with Real Life Emergency programming as one of our core strands,” said Stephen Ladlow, the director of Pick and Challenge. “We are therefore delighted to have worked with Woodcut Media to bring two first-class true-crime shows to the channel, with Britain and World’s Most Evil Killers headlining in a key Thursday-night slot next year.”
