SOMEONE YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW

New Series Premieres Thursday, August 2 at 10/9c

In homicide cases, it's seldom strangers you need to worry about, it's those closest to you. Even when the killing appears to be random, there can be something more sinister lying beneath the surface: a calculated plot, set in motion by someone close; someone hiding in plain sight; or someone leading a double life. What if the killer could be SOMEONE YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW?

THE DEVIL SPEAKS

THE DEVIL SPEAKS uses real audio recordings to peel back the layers of a case.

FATAL VOWS

New Season Premieres Saturday, August 11 at 10/9c

Spite, greed, backstabbing, and betrayal. When marriages fall apart, divorce can turn ugly... or even deadly.

EVIL LIVES HERE

What if the person closest to you were a devil in disguise? Would you see the signs? EVIL LIVES HERE tells the true, heart-stopping stories of people who shared a home with a killer. In each case, they see suspicious signs that something is amiss...something they can't quite put their finger on. Sometimes, they turn a blind eye to those signs, not wanting to know where it came from. Eventually, they must come face to face with the horrible truth: that the person they loved, the person they trusted, is a monster.

MURDER BY NUMBERS

New Season Premieres Tuesday, August 14 at 9/8c

Each episode of MURDER BY NUMBERS begins with the discovery of a body and the onset of an intense investigation. After following the clues, investigators quickly focus on a likely suspect. But just as viewers ease into the standard procedure of a true-crime procedural through the eyes of detectives, they are plunged into yet another chilling, suspenseful, cinematic storyline where a second body is discovered. This shocking revelation not only eliminates the original suspect, but it sends the investigation on a harrowing journey into the depths of pure criminal evil.

HOMICIDE HUNTER: LT. JOE KENDA

With his personal interviews and compelling storytelling style, Kenda captivates us with the details of a different investigation each week, beginning from when he got the homicide call to when the case was closed. Unlike many true-crime shows, this series delivers the realities of the emotional and psychological effects of a murder on the investigator. Set in Colorado, a state known for its suburban lifestyle, these murders are all the more compelling because they are stories of homicide that can happen to anybody.
