27 May 2022
Fan-Favourite Will Return For Its Eighth Series

Award-winning factual label, Arrow Media, has been commissioned to make an eighth series of fan-favourite American Monster, for US Channel and true crime leader, Investigation Discovery (ID).

The huge order further establishes the relationship between ID and Arrow Media and with it comes the return of See No Evil, also entering its eighth series, and Body Cam, returning for a fourth series.

Also included are brand new commissions Mary Kay Letourneau: Notes on a Scandal, a portrait of the illicit student-teacher relationship that gripped news stations across the U.S and Who Killed Biggie and Tupac, a deep dive into a deadly feud between hip hop legends.

Tom Brisley, Creative Director, Arrow Media, says: “These recommissions serve as proof that these series still resonate very strongly with audiences and, as programme makers, that delights us. It has always been our aim to make series that are not only high-end, but also work to ensure the stories are engaging and dynamic so the programmes retain their freshness. Being rewarded with new orders for these returning series is testament to the hard-work our teams put in to achieve those aims.”

American Monster goes beyond the scene of the crime and directly into the lives of some of America's most shocking murderers, using rarely-seen home movie footage. See No Evil presents dramatic stories of crimes being solved with the aid of surveillance cameras. All three programmes rely on giving viewers access to never-before seen footage and the use of cutting edge technology to tell their gripping stories. Body Cam gives viewers their own eyewitness look at the life-or-death decisions of police work, as told by officers’ own body camera footage.

ID is also the home of: Arrow Media’s feature-length documentary brand Mind of a Monster, which includes companion podcasts; the brand-new six-part series Caught In The Net, which presents true stories of investigators entering the digital world to solve brutal murders; Love, Honor, Betray, telling stories of those duped by their partners in dark and devastating ways; as well as a whole host of its iconic crime, feature-length documentaries, such as JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened? and O.J. & Nicole: An American Tragedy.
