Nov 11, 2014  •  Post A Comment

Some of the best-known executives in the TV business have joined together with media company Gannett to launch a new multicast network in January.

It’s called the Justice Network, and in a press release it calls itself “a free over-the-air multicast network with carriage on MSOs, featuring gripping stories of true crime and aiming to make communities safer by empowering viewers to take action.”

Among its all-star start-up team is Barry Wallach, the former longtime president of NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution, who will be in charge of distribution of the new network.

John Ford, the longtime Discovery veteran — and former president of the Discovery Channel — will be in charge of programming at the network.

Steve Schiffman, the ex-president of the National Geographic Channels — who was also its marketing guru for years before that — is onboard at Justice as CEO.

Justice founder Lonnie Cooper and Wendy Brown are also part of Justice’s senior leadership team.

According to the announcement, “The Justice Network will be partnering with Gannett Broadcasting to launch the network in approximately one-third of the country beginning January 2015. Gannett Broadcasting will make Justice Network’s television content available in virtually all of the markets in their U.S. footprint. …

“Justice Network programming will include series such as ‘Body of Evidence,’ ‘Masterminds,’ ‘The Investigators,’ ‘Psychic Detectives,’ ‘I, Detective,’ ‘LA Forensics,’ ‘Missing Persons Unit,’ ‘Murder by the Book,’ ‘Parco P.I.,’ ‘Locked Up Abroad,’ ‘Alaska State Troopers,’ ‘Extreme Evidence,’ ‘North Mission Road,’ ‘Haunting Evidence,’ ‘Over the Limit’ and ‘Dominick Dunne’s Power Privilege and Justice.’”

  1. i think this could be of interest for you…..sandy

  2. I hate this channel. You took off LWN and put on crime. I get enough of this crap watching the news every day. Go away!

  3. Where is this tv show available in Southern CA? It sounds excited & we will be regular viewers, once we have the channel #

    Thank you

  4. I am wondering why most of the shows take place in Florida and California? I know you do have shows that take place in a few other states, but why not in the upper Midwest? Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North and South Dakota??? I know that there are murders and rapes that take place in these states. I realize you are a new station but come on…….I do like your station but I would appreciate it if you didn’t keep repeating shows over and over on a daily basis.

  5. I forgot to mention that it would be nice if you aired newer shows. Most of the shows you air are from the early 2000’s. The shows are mostly 10 yrs old.

  6. U suck all u do is show the same thing over and over again

  7. On a episode of s.w.a.t USA Texas it featured a 43 year old substitute teacher who shot & killed his ex-girlfriend & her new boyfriend . jus wondering what his name was. I like the show.

  8. I absolutely love this network! The Justice Network (DTV 17.1 WALE-TV in my area Montgomery, AL) has quickly become my favorite channel. To all of you haters complaining about their shows being “old”…. Get over it. The true crime genre is my favorite and I watch this network daily. Thank you and keep up the great work!
