Arrested Industries to adapt AYR’s The Murder of Robert Wone podcast for TV

London- and LA-based based content company Arrested Industries has signed a co-development deal with AYR Media in LA to create a limited drama series based on AYR’s true crime podcast The Murder of Robert Wone.

The partnership, Arrested Industries’ first since rebranding and setting up its US office last year, will be led by the company’s LA-based co-CEO Anthony Kimble and AYR Media’s founder and president Aliza Rosen.

Rosen and her team at AYR created and produced The Murder of Robert Wone podcast for Amazon’s Audible, where it debuted last year. The podcast examines the unsolved murder of American lawyer Robert Wone 15 years ago.

“Aliza and her team have cleverly created one of the most riveting and totally absorbing podcasts of recent times. This is an incredible tale about how human emotion and passion crashed together with homophobia and sexual stigma in law enforcement, politics, the media and [Washington] DC’s pearl-clutching culture to keep a murder from being solved,” Kimble said.

“It is now destined to capture a whole new audience as a scripted series, in addition to re-engaging the many fans who have already listened spellbound to the podcast.”
