TNT is moving forward with a series focusing on sex crimes. Variety reports that the cable channel ordered a spinoff to the reality investigation series “Cold Justice” that will zero in on unsolved cases.
“The untitled series, produced by Wolf Reality and Magical Elves, will follow a pair of crime experts as they travel the country to assist local law enforcement in closing long-unsolved cases involving sex-related crimes,” the story reports. “Ten episodes have been ordered for a spring 2015 premiere. Former Harris County, Texas, prosecutors Casey Garrett and Alicia O’Neill will headline the series.”
“Cold Justice” expert Kelly Siegler will be an executive producer on the new series, along with Dick Wolf, Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, and Tom Thayer, the report notes.
Said Siegler: “This new ‘Cold Justice’ series on sex crimes is about the healing that can come for survivors and their loved ones when an assailant is finally brought to justice. But it’s also about the bravery it takes for survivors of sexual assault to come forward and tell their stories, which in turn helps investigators close cases that can prevent the assailant from abusing others.”
