Dick Wolf’s ‘Cold Justice’ & ‘Criminal Confessions’ Renewed By Oxygen


DEADLINE by Denise Petski April 23, 2018 10:00am

 

Oxygen Media has picked up new seasons of reality series Cold Justice and Criminal Confessions from executive producer Dick Wolf. Both series are in pre-production and are set to return in 2018.

Cold Justice and Criminal Confessions have resonated with our audience as they share a common passion in seeing the journey of justice served,” said Rod Aissa, EVP Original Programming and Development at Oxygen Media. “We’re thrilled to bring fans new seasons of both shows and to continue working with our amazing producing partners Dick Wolf, Magical Elves and Shed Media in delivering high-quality crime programming.”

Wolf has played a key role in Oxygen Media’s rebrand into a crime-themed cable network, which launched last summer with a new season of Wolf’s reality investigations series Cold Justice.

The renewal announcement comes on the heels of the network expanding its original series slate in the true-crime genre with 10 new greenlights and the U.S. premiere of a Piers Morgan event series.

“Oxygen has been incredibly supportive of Cold Justice and Criminal Confessions with obvious results,” said Wolf. “Our fan base is growing and as a result, Cold Justice will continue to provide justice for victims and their families and Criminal Confessions will continue to give viewers an inside look into a side of police work that has never been examined before.”

Cold Justice follows veteran prosecutor Kelly Siegler, who partners with seasoned detectives to dig into murder cases that have lingered for years without justice. Together with local law enforcement from across the country, the Cold Justice team has successfully helped generate about 35 arrests and 18 convictions.

The series is produced by Wolf Reality & Magical Elves with Dick Wolf and Tom Thayer serving as Executive Producers for Wolf Reality and Jane Lipsitz, Dan Cutforth, Kelly Siegler, Liz Cook, Kathryn Vaughan and Scott Patch serving as Executive Producers for Magical Elves.

Criminal Confessions delves into the psychological showdown that transpires inside actual police interrogation rooms between investigators and suspects, and dissects what it takes to yield a confession.

Criminal Confessions is produced by Wolf Reality and Warner Bros.’ Shed Media with Dick Wolf, Tom Thayer, Pam Healey and Adam Kassen serving as Executive Producers.
