(Albuquerque, NM) Thursday, October 24, 2019 - REELZ today announced that two more of its original series are headed to PodcastOne with the launch of Autopsy: The Last Hours of... on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 and Copycat Killers on Thursday, November 21, 2019. New podcasts for episodes of both Autopsy: The Last Hours of... and Copycat Killers will be available every week on Apple Podcasts and PodcastOne. Both Autopsy: The Last Hours of... and Copycat Killers podcasts were originally slated to debut in 2020 but advanced to this year in response to customer demand based on the success of the network's Murder Made Me Famous podcasts on PodcastOne.
"Since launching our Murder Made Me Famous podcast last August the response has exceeded expectations with an average of 2-3 million downloads per month so we're seizing on that interest and moving up the launches for two more REELZ series podcasts," said John deGarmo, SVP of REELZ Distribution. "Both Autopsy: The Last Hours of... and Copycat Killers are about real celebrities and real stories that fascinate the public and we look forward to sharing those stories through podcasts."
PodcastOne CEO, Peter Morris, said, "We have developed an incredible partnership with REELZ, and the fan demand is real (pun intended). We can't wait to bring this additional highly-produced content from the popular true-crime genre to even more people."
Autopsy: The Last Hours of... explores the truth behind the controversial and mysterious deaths of celebrities and people whose untimely deaths were often surrounded by elements of shock, scandal and intense media attention. Renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter recounts their final hours using crucial medical evidence from the actual autopsies while interviews with friends, family and experts shed light on the events that led to the celebrity's death - finally putting an end to the mystery.
