CBS Reality renews crime pair

CBS Reality in the UK has renewed two of its original true crime series for its autumn line-up.

Simon Toyne

The network, owned by AMC Networks International UK and CBS Studios International, will air Written in Blood (6×60’) and Evidence of Evil (fka Trace of Evil) later this year.

Produced by Endemol Shine North, Written in Blood follows bestselling writer Simon Toyne as he meets six popular crime fiction writers to discuss the influence true crime has had on their writing.

Episodes will tackle a different criminal case using reconstruction and real-life footage, with authors including Mason Cross (the Carter Blake series), Sophie Hannah (writer of the Hercule Poirot novel The Mystery of Three Quarters) and Peter Robinson (the Inspector Banks novels).

Evidence of Evil explores the advances in technology that have transformed detective work through notable cases such as the murder of EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie. The series is produced by UK indie Peninsula Television and the first season aired in May.

Both series will be exec produced by Sam Rowden, director of programming, CBS Channels.
