US network Investigation Discovery (ID) has recommissioned two true crime series from UK indie prodco Arrow Media.
See No Evil will return to ID for its fourth season in January 2018. The 16×60’ series is coproduced with Canada’s Saloon Media and has also been recommissioned by Canadian French-language broadcaster Canal D.
The show, distributed globally by Entertainment One, unravels murder mysteries by piecing together real CCTV footage.
American Monster will return later in 2018 for its 12×60’ third season. The series uses home-movie footage to reveal the double lives led by some of America’s murderers before they were caught.
Tom Brisley, co-founder and joint creative director of Arrow Media, said: “Over the past few years, we’ve built a really strong working relationship with Investigation Discovery. It’s been great to once again work with them to continue making exciting and captivating true crime content.”
