WAS IT HIM?

IS ED EDWARDS THE MOST INFAMOUS SERIAL KILLER IN AMERICAN HISTORY?

HIS GRANDSON IS OUT TO FIND THE TRUTH WITH THE HELP OF VETERAN COLD CASE INVESTIGATOR DET. JOHN CAMERON

Spike TV and Objective Media Group Present a Six-Part Documentary Series, "It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards," on the Shocking Investigation That Connects the Convicted Killer to Many of the Most Publicized Murders of the 20th Century

New York, NY, November 10, 2016 - Wayne Wolfe has a shocking and terrible family secret. Less than a year ago, he discovered that his real grandfather was the deceased, convicted killer Ed Edwards. Possibly the most notorious serial killer in American history, he was convicted of five cold cases in his 70s, but had potentially embarked on a decades-long murder spree. Spike TV examines the infamous cold-blooded murderer through the lens of the astonishing investigation led by Wolfe and veteran police detective John Cameron in the new documentary series "It Was Him."

Spike's six-part documentary series was developed by Jimmy Fox of Objective Media Group, who will executive produce, along with the show-running team Jackson Nguyen and Todd Crites of Turn Left Productions. It began production in the fall of 2016.

Shortly after determining that Edwards was his grandfather, Wolfe learned of the incredibly compelling link between him and a string of astonishingly high-profile murders. In an attempt to shed light on his family history and find closure for his father, Wolfe joined forces with the investigator John Cameron. Cameron, a cold-case expert and retired detective based in Great Falls, Montana, has been investigating the infamous mass murderer Edwards for almost a decade.

Cameron met Edwards in 2008 while working on the parole board in Montana. In this position, he was able to access undisclosed information that points to the fact that Edwards could be responsible for some of the most high-profile crimes of our generation.

The search for the truth has haunted the seasoned detective and drives him to seek answers. Cameron's meticulously compiled evidence has Edwards as the ultimate suspect in some of the most well-known murder cases, including the Zodiac Killer, Laci Peterson and many more.

Edwards was arrested in 2009 and found guilty of five grisly murders over 20 years, all of which involved kidnapping, shootings, stabbings, torture, auto theft, all under an assumed identity. He died of natural causes in prison in 2011, four months before his execution.

Objective Media Group, the All3 based company, currently produces the Emmy-nominated CNN series "United Shades of America" and CNBC's "Make Me a Millionaire Inventor," as well as upcoming series "Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent," for Investigation Discovery, "Hollywood Darlings" for POP and scripted drama "The Arrangement" for E!. Executive Producers for Objective Media Group/All3Media America include Jimmy Fox, Layla Smith and Greg Lipstone. Wayne Wolfe, Leonid Leonov and Kenny Dale Borill will also serve as Executive Producers.

"It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards" will be part of the network's new Spike Serialized series of non-scripted projects, along with the previously announced, "TIME: The Kalief Browder Story" and "The John McAfee Project." Spike Serialized series take a compelling, in-depth look into fascinating and often controversial subjects or individuals.

Sharon Levy is Spike's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chachi Senior is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike and Justin Lacob, Vice President, Original Series will oversee "It Was Him" for the network.

Spike TV is available in 91.4 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks. A unit of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Viacom Media Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
