FilmRise co-commissions new seasons of Woodcut Media true crime duo

Murdered at First Sight’s second season is in production

New York-based studio and streaming network FilmRise has boarded new seasons of UK indie Woodcut Media’s Murdered at First Sight and World’s Most Evil Killers.

More than 30 hours of content will be produced under the copro agreement, with FilmRise co-commissioning World’s Most Evil Killers S8 and Murdered at First Sight S2, both of which are currently in production.

The two companies began collaborating in 2020, with New York-based FilmRise licensing the first four seasons of World’s Most Evil Killers and co-commissioning seasons one, five, six and seven of Murdered at First Sight, alongside Sky Crime.

Murdered at First Sight tells the first-hand stories of some of the most complex and hard-to-solve murder cases where the victim had never met the perpetrator before, while World’s Most Evil Killers brings viewers up close and personal to the real stories of prolific killers.

Kate Beal, founder and CEO of Woodcut Media, said: “Having FilmRise on board as a coproduction partner for these series expands our ability to create programming that is in high demand for true crime enthusiasts.”
