Press release from Oxygen, June 12, 2017:
Oxygen Media, the new network for crime, revives fan-favorite series “Cold Justice” with brand new episodes beginning Saturday, July 22 at 8pm ET/PT. From Executive Producer Dick Wolf and Magical Elves, the real life crime series follows veteran prosecutor Kelly Siegler, who gets help from seasoned detectives – Johnny Bonds, Steve Spingola, Aaron Sam and Tonya Rider, as they dig into small town murder cases that have lingered for years without answers or justice for the victims. Together with local law enforcement from across the country, the “Cold Justice” team has successfully helped bring about 30 arrests and 16 convictions. No case is too cold for Siegler as the new season delves into new unsolved homicides while also bringing updates to previous cases.
“With cases from seasons past still getting convictions today, ‘Cold Justice’ is the gold standard for a true crime investigation series,” said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “We are thrilled to bring this show back to its loyal fan base while also introducing it to a new cohort of armchair detectives who will be captivated by Kelly and her team’s persistence as they search for justice.”
Executive Producer Dick Wolf adds, “We conceived ‘Cold Justice’ with the intent to provide justice for victims and their families in cold murder cases, and to give hope to those who had all but given up. The series has a proven track record. So far, in conjunction with local law enforcement, Kelly and her team have solved numerous cases. It’s not often a show like this gets a second life, but I am very grateful to Oxygen for reviving ‘Cold Justice,’ so we can continue our mission.”
On the premiere episode, “One of Our Own,” Kelly Siegler is back on her own turf in Texas to look into a cold case she’s never forgotten – the 1991 murder of a 35-year-old wife, mother of two young boys and employee of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Kelly and veteran detective Steve Spingola will join local law enforcement to reinvestigate the case to see if there is any evidence that could help solve this tragic homicide.
