CBS continues to add programming to the CBS All Access digital subscription VOD and live streaming service, announcing an order this week for the true-crime series “Interrogation.”
Nine episodes, designed to be watched in any order, will be released upon the show’s launch. Each episode is based on a real interrogation taken from police case files.
The individual episodes lead up to a conclusive season finale, enabling the viewer to play detective throughout the series.
“‘Interrogation’ is based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother,” CBS says in its announcement.
“This non-linear approach to storytelling is closer to how real detectives work, picking their own path through the evidence in a search for the truth,” said Anders Weidemann, executive producer and co-creator.
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios and Fabrik Entertainment. Co-creators Weidemann (“30 Degrees In February”) and John Mankiewicz (“House of Cards,” “Bosch”) will serve as executive producers alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate.
Said Julie McNamara, executive VP of Original Content for CBS All Access:”‘Interrogation’ pushes the boundaries of what a television series can be with its truly unique format. It’s also a series that could only be executed with the technical capabilities of a streaming service, and we look forward to bringing its innovative approach to our CBS All Access subscribers.”
“Interrogation” joins a slate of CBS All Access original series that includes “Star Trek: Discovery,” “The Good Fight,” ” No Activity,” “Strange Angel,” “One Dollar” and “Tell Me a Story.” Also coming up are a new version of “The Twilight Zone” along with “Why Women Kill,” “Star Trek: Lower Decks” and a new untitled “Star Trek” series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard.
