Investigation Discovery Launches New True Crime Series

Investigation DiscoveryInvestigation Discovery’s putting a new twist on traditional true crime storytelling with Redrum debuting on January 15, 2013 at 10pm. Each episode will start at the scene of the crime and then work “backwards in time to reveal the killer, revealing their motive and the truth behind what really drove them to murder.”
 
Announcing the upcoming premiere, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery Henry Schleiff stated: “As a destination for people who crave crime and mystery programming, we are always searching for innovative ways to tell our stories and keep our audience captivated. Redrum brings a unique angle and to me, there’s nothing ‘better for change’ than literally, flipping the script.”
 
The Details:
 
Redrum illustrates how a murder investigation never starts at the beginning, but when a body is found. It’s up to the investigators to piece together the story, tracing the series of intersecting, and often complex events and relationships that unfolded to arrive at the root of the crime. Viewers follow the backward tale of murder from the false motives and mistaken witnesses to conversations taken completely out of context, until the truth finally comes out at the very end. With interviews from friends and family close to the victims, and sometimes even the killer themselves, this chilling and haunting series uses a combination of traditional elements of true crime programming by integrating first person interviews along with stylized recreations.
