The Oxygen Channel Is Becoming A True-Crime, All The Time Network

Now, the last remaining sliver of Oxygen’s former programming schedule is “Snapped,” which has been wearing in its “re-cre” formula over 20 seasons, dramatically recreating murders. Some of the show’s successes may have something to do with its unexpected subject material: “Snapped” is all about women killers, or suspected killers, spinning from them salacious tales of adultery, greed, fear and revenge when statistics show that women are overwhelmingly victims of domestic violence, not its perpetrators. It’s been a longtime hit for the network, and it’s not going anywhere, at least as long as women continue harming their husbands, boyfriends, abusers that share one or neither of those labels, and, sometimes, children.

US crime network reconstruct events around sadistic murder of Elaine O’Hara in docu-drama

Graphic details of the murder of tragic Elaine O’Hara at the hands of sadistic killer Graham Dwyer have been reconstructed for a major US television crime network, writes Linda McGrory.

The harrowing case, which shocked the country during Dwyer’s murder trial in 2015, are outlined in a hard-hitting episode of ‘Married with Secrets’ on the Investigation Discovery (ID) channel on American TV.

The network bases its docu-dramas on true events with the aim of unravelling “the truth behind real-life mysteries”.

Viewer discretion is advised at the outset of the 40-minute episode, entitled ‘Yes, Master’, which chronicles the toxic ‘master-slave’ relationship between the married architect and his vulnerable victim prior to the murder.

Central characters including Dwyer (42) and his wife; Ms O’Hara (36); a previous partner of the killer and key investigating gardaí are played by a cast of mainly American actors.

The show also features interviews with friends of Ms O’Hara and commentary
