"Gangsters: America's Most Evil", "Collision Course" and "Autopsy: The Last Hours of... " Renewed
(Albuquerque, NM) Monday, April 4, 2016 - REELZ today announced that it has renewed three original series. New episodes of Gangsters: America's Most Evil will premiere in winter 2016/2017 while new episodes of Collision Course and Autopsy: The Last Hours of... will premiere in early 2017.
"Our viewers are responding when we show the real stories behind celebrities and movies so we're giving them more of what they want," said Steve Cheskin, SVP of REELZ Programming. "These three series shows the many twists and turns along the path to being a household name and often it's what happens behind the scenes that makes a story so compelling."
When Hollywood wants a jarring story about high-profile criminals, fictional tales are never as juicy as the true stories of the most notorious criminals brought to justice by the U.S. government. In Gangsters: America's Most Evil the sinister side of celebrity is put under the spotlight with profiles on the lethal beauties, outlaws and kingpins who inspire nightmarish Hollywood crime dramas. Gangsters: America's Most Evil is produced by Asylum Entertainment.
The documentary series Collision Course unravels the speculation surrounding car and airplane crashes involving celebrities. Footage from the scene, police records, CGI reenactments and interviews with eyewitnesses provide a detailed look at what put these celebrities on a collision course. New episodes include the tragic crashes involving Paul Walker, Tracy Morgan and John Denver as well as Harrison Ford's airplane crash onto a Santa Monica golf course and Justin Bieber's repeated vehicular mishaps. Collision Course is produced by Muse Entertainment.
Autopsy: The Last Hours of... reveals the truth behind the controversial and mysterious deaths of global icons and people whose untimely deaths were often surrounded by scandal and intense media attention. Reconstructions of their final hours are based on crucial medical evidence from the actual autopsies and interviews with friends and family shed light on the events that led to death - finally putting an end to the mystery. In new episodes viewers will see the final days and events of Richard Pryor, Chris Farley, Bernie Mac, Patrick Swayze, Janis Joplin and Sharon Tate. Autopsy: The Last Hours of... is produced by Potato, part of ITV Studios.
