INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY GREENLIGHTS NEW SERIES "I AM HOMICIDE" FEATURING CHARLOTTE HOMICIDE DETECTIVE GARRY MCFADDEN
(Silver Spring, MD) -Investigation Discovery, the leading destination for true-crime programming, announced today that production has begun on an all-new original series, I AM HOMICIDE, following homicide detective Garry McFadden. Detective McFadden is an officer unlike any other. Fully immersing himself in every corner of Charlotte to protect and serve the community, Detective McFadden uses his street smarts to work the neighborhoods and gather critical information for leads, no matter how dangerous. Chances are, when the call comes in, Detective McFadden knows those involved - whether it's the victim, the family members... or even the perpetrator. Every day, he risks his life by trusting the streets he calls home. I AM HOMICIDE will make its world premiere in June of 2016 only on Investigation Discovery.
During each one-hour episode, McFadden showcases his unorthodox methods to explain how he solved the most precarious cases of his career. He'll go anywhere, talk to anyone, backup or not. With more than a 90% success rate with the investigations he pursues; he puts it all on the line to solve the crime - and it's worked for more than 700 cases. This unique look at justice shows McFadden's fiery passion; all the while he's wearing the best suits in town. And, after thirty-five years on the force, he shows no signs of slowing down.
"Garry McFadden is truly an original - with his larger-than-life personality, Garry doesn't just solve crimes, he cares passionately about helping his community," said Jane Latman, SVP development, ID. "This series will help viewers understand both the intricacies of detective work and the incredible legacy Garry is creating in Charlotte."
