ID renews Arrow Media true crime

American Monster examines the lives of real murderers

US true crime network Investigation Discovery has doubled down on its relationship with UK indie Arrow Media, ordering a further 39 hours of factual content.

Discovery-owned ID has commissioned a third season of The Devil Speaks (6×60’), which examines the real audio used by police to solve murder cases.

American Monster (11×60’, plus 1×120’), a docuseries looking into the lives of murderers, has also been picked up for a fourth season.

See No Evil (20×60’), a coproduction with Canada’s Blue Ant Studios featuring crimes solved with surveillance footage, returns for its sixth run.

Sam Starbuck is executive producing The Devil Speaks, Nick Metcalfe is exec producing American Monster and Ash Potterton is exec producing See No Evil, which is distributed by Blue Ant International.

Tom Brisley, creative director of Arrow Media, said: “The returnable series is the Holy Grail of production – they are the bedrock of growing a successful production company, content that everyone wants to make but which can prove elusive.

“Arrow Media has put a huge amount of development effort into not only growing our returnable series slate, but also making sure that our current series still deliver – remaining as fresh and compelling as the day they first hit the screens. It’s great to see our series portfolio become just as strong as our limited series, singles and specials work.”
