DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S TRUE CRIME SERIES "KILLING FIELDS" RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON WITH NEW LEADS, TWISTS AND SUSPECTS
Season Premieres on Tuesday, January 3 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery
(LOS ANGELES) - Across America, there are isolated places that appear untouched. In these desolate and sprawling areas - known as killing fields - dozens of deaths remain mysteries, baffling anyone daring enough to investigate. On Tuesday, January 3 at 10 PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel will return to the Louisiana swamplands as an active criminal investigation unfolds for season two of KILLING FIELDS.
KILLING FIELDS is co-executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Tom Fontana ("St. Elsewhere," "Homicide: Life On The Street," "Oz" and "The Philanthropist") and Academy Award-winning film director Barry Levinson ("Rain Man," "Diner," "Bugsy," "Wag the Dog" and "Good Morning, Vietnam"). Under Sheriff Brett Stassi and Major Ronnie Hebert, detectives Rodie Sanchez, Aubrey St. Angelo, Lori Morgan, Jeremy Sanchez, and Leslie Bradford and Brett Stassi, Jr. investigate real crimes in the small community of Iberville Parish, Louisiana, located just 15 miles from the state capitol, Baton Rouge.
Shot in real time, the series picks up from last season as Rodie, Aubrey, and the team zero in on the infamous 1997 homicide of former Louisiana State University student Eugenie Boisfontaine. Rodie is more determined than ever to close the case, which has haunted him for nearly two decades.
But that isn't the only case that catches their attention. The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office tracks another terrifying case after evidence surfaces in a nearby Parish of a body stuffed inside a barrel. Rodie believes that this is tied to an unsolved disappearance he worked 26 years ago. Even more compelling - the facts surrounding the barrel are eerily similar to what the prime suspect once admitted in a separate investigation for that missing person's case. But even with such information, Rodie could never lock him up because the body could not be found... Perhaps until now.
Together, with the guidance of Major Ronnie Hebert, the team works tirelessly to secure crucial evidence, uncover grisly facts, and pursue new leads - all with one mission in mind: closing these cases and bringing justice to the victims' families. With the advancement in forensic technology - along with good old-fashioned police work - the team gets closer to capturing the truth that leads them in a cat and mouse chase. Will Rodie be able to keep good on his word? And can the team finally bring closure to the many victims and their families?
KILLING FIELDS is produced for Discovery Channel by Sirens Media, a Leftfield Entertainment Company. For Sirens Media, Executive Producers are Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, and Lucilla D'Agostino. For Discovery Channel, Denise Contis and Joseph Schneier are Executive Producers with Max Micallef as Coordinating Producer.
