LONDON, UK – 10th August, 2017 – CBS Reality, owned by AMC Networks International – UK and CBS Studios International, announced today its September line-up consisting of three CBS Reality Original real crime titles, “Click for Murder,” “Murderers and Their Mothers” Season 2 and “Written in Blood.”

 “Click for Murder” explores a number of wide-ranging murder cases where the internet or social networking sites were central to the crime. In discussion in his ‘Investigation Lab’ with notable criminal psychologists and cybercrime experts, Donal MacIntyre (“Donal MacIntyre: Unsolved”) draws new conclusions and sheds fresh light on these horrific acts of violence.

MacIntyre is joined by Dr. Elizabeth Yardley, Associate Professor of Criminology and Director of the Centre for Applied Criminology, whose research into social media has served as the basis of the series. Produced by Emporium Productions, the 10×60 series will air every weekday at 10:00pm from 18th September.

Donal MacIntyre opens up new case files in “Murderers and Their Mothers,” as the series continues to reveal startling new facts about the disturbing childhoods and maternal relationships of notorious killers from the UK and around the world. The murderers investigated in the new episodes include Mark Howe, Michael Ryan, Peter Sutcliffe and Peter Moore.

The 5×60 series is a co-production with DRG. It is produced by Emporium Productions for CBS Reality, and will air on Sundays at 9:00pm from 3rd September.

Previously announced series “Written in Blood” brings fact and fiction together as bestselling thriller writer Simon Toyne (The Boy Who Saw and the Sanctus trilogy), meets other top UK crime writers to discuss how their works of fiction have been inspired by real life crimes. The authors featured in “Written in Blood” are Mark Billingham, Alex Marwood, Peter James, Angela Clarke, Luke Delaney, Elly Griffiths, RC Bridgestock, Marnie Riches, Simon Kernick and Howard Linskey. The 10×60 series is produced by Endemol Shine North for CBS Reality and will air on Sundays at 10:00pm from 3rd September.
