Inside the 7Beyond US joint venture – Mediaweek


Four years ago US TV executive Mike Krupat was hired to start up the joint venture 7Beyond operated by Beyond Productions and the Seven Network.

During a recent Mediaweek visit to Los Angeles, and after spending time with Essential USA, we also visited Krupat at 7Beyond across town in Culver City.

Both partners have had success in the past working in the US, but until the JV was started there was no single person exploiting the properties from both companies in the US.

Krupat explained his mandate from the partners is threefold:

New Baltimore couple’s murder subject of ‘Deadly Women’ episode

A young woman’s role in the horrific murders of a New Baltimore couple was the subject of an Investigation Discovery episode last week.

Samantha Bachynski’s involvement in the deaths of Scott and Melissa Berels were the topic of the ID channel’s “Deadly Women” series, which was set to air at 10 p.m. Friday.

Bachynski was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and several other charges, along with Patrick Selepak, for the 2006 slayings of the Berels, both 27, in their home. Melissa Berels had befriended Selepak, who was the leader of a crime spree with Bachynski that also included the murder of a 53-year-old man in Genesee County in the days following the murders of the Berels.

Selepak first fatally strangled Melissa Berels, who was pregnant, and then with Bachynski’s help tortured Scott Berels before strangling him. Bachynski injected bleach into Scott Berels.

In the weeks before the murder, she helped Selepak rob

True crime TV trend may teach society lesson

True-crime stories used to keep me awake nights.

Truman Capote’s classic “In Cold Blood”; Ann Rule, writing about her old friend, serial killer Ted Bundy, in “The Stranger Beside Me”: These were the gateways to an addiction that left me more nervous about violent crime — not to mention the possibility that casual acquaintances might be homicidal psychopaths — than I had any right to be statistically.

When I eventually kicked the habit and returned to novels, I breathed easier. Turns out I’m fine with murder mysteries as long as they’re fictional.

On television, I learned to avoid those “48 Hours” episodes that might trigger a relapse, and if I was watching the Investigation Discovery channel, you can bet it was work-related. Because I don’t think it’s an accident that the network of “Evil Twins” and “Deadly Women” offers a prize for the “ID Addict of the Month.”

But then true-crime TV went upscale,

‘Lady Killers’: Chicago Author Explores Lives of Female Serial Murderers

Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History takes a look at 14 women who didn’t stop at one murder, or two, or three … Fourteen serial killers throughout history.

Chicago’s own Tori Telfer looks at their origins and motivation, their rationale. Perhaps even more important, she looks at how they were seen. How does society view women who are cold-blooded killers? Differently than men. Let’s start there. We caught up with Telfer with just a few questions in anticipation for her book launch at Women and Children First, Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

JB: “I believe we have to laugh and shudder in order to understand our own human history, which is partially an inheritance of death. Recoiling from crime
