ZDFE Aligns with Story House for Cold Case: History


ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE) has partnered with Story House Productions, ZDF and ARTE on Cold Case: History, a new series that delves into the biggest crimes in history.

Cold Case: History features some of the biggest murders in history, taking viewers into the past with recreations of the crime. The six-part series includes the Medici Case, where two sons are slain in a struggle for power; the murder of Pharaoh Ramses III; Vincent Van Gogh’s alleged suicide; the two bodies in the Tower of London; and the mysterious death of Marilyn Monroe. The series reinvestigates these and other cases using state-of-the-art forensics and archeological methods.

ZDF Enterprises is the global distributor for Cold Case: History, which will go into production with Story House this fall.

Ralf Rueckauer, VP of ZDFE.unscripted, said: “Developing this series has been an exciting journey with each episode unraveling a mystery. It’s been fascinating to see modern-day forensics at work dispelling age-old theories, particularly in the case of Marilyn Monroe, where we have unearthed new evidence and testimony.”
