Oxygen Greenlights 5 New True-Crime Series

Oxygen Media is continuing to expand its killer slate by greenlighting five new series, as well as a documentary about Kim Kardashian’s campaign for criminal justice reform.

The new set of projects hail from an eclectic range of creatives, including Kardashian, Mark Wahlberg, Ice-T, and Jason Blum.

“Oxygen is tremendously excited to work with some of the biggest names in the industry on such important projects,” said Rod Aissa, executive vice president of original programming and development for Oxygen. “This year we’ve increased our original hours by more than 30%, and we’ll keep ramping up our programming efforts as more fans flock to the network to experience best in class content.”

In 2017, Oxygen rebranded to become a fulltime true-crime destination. Some of its biggest hits include “Aaron Hernandez Uncovered,” “Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers” and “Cold Justice” from executive producer Dick Wolf.

“The Jane Doe Murders” (Working Title)

Produced by MY Entertainment with Michael Yudin serving as the executive producer.

In the US alone, there are nearly 40,000 open cases where a victim of a violent crime remains unidentified – bodies without names and loved ones never returned to their families. But now thanks to ground-breaking new forensic technology, investigators are able to bring a victim’s face to life and uncover new evidence. In each episode of “The Jane Doe Murders,” renowned crime scene investigator, Yolanda McClary, will work on a different unknown victim case until their identity is revealed. She will then present her findings to local authorities and work alongside them to catch the perpetrator.
