Crime+Investigation Highlights April 2020

Press release   •   Mar 03, 2020 08:49 CET

Alaska PD

ALASKA PD

Thursdays at 21:00 from 23 April

Alaska PD brings viewers to America’s Last Frontier, where the line between civilisation and lawlessness can be razor thin. Chronically shorthanded police departments across the state must turn to officers from the Lower 48 to fight a soaring crime rate. For the ‘newbies’ it’s a trial by fire as they learn first-hand that policing, like everything else, is different in Alaska. In a state where guns are carried as part of everyday life, officers often have to protect an entire town by themselves while enforcing laws many are unwilling to follow. They face numerous dangers found only in Alaska, not just from people who want to be free from the rules of society, but also from encounters with predatory animals roaming through town and subzero conditions that can be deadly and unrelenting.

The series will follow Alaska’s law enforcement in Fairbanks, Kodiak, Kotzebue and Petersburg. (7x60’)

THE JAIL: 60 DAYS IN

New episodes on Fridays at 21:00

For the first time in 60 Days In history, more participants struggle to survive the intense programme and are forced to quit early as the newly elected Sheriff takes over one of the worst facilities the series has ever seen. After two decades, the Etowah County Detention Center in Alabama is under new management and the newly elected Sheriff is determined to make a change. In his first week he decided to shake down the facility, and in one day alone found more than 200 broken door locks and removed more than two tons of contraband. With no time to lose, Sheriff Horton, along with Chief Peek and select members of their team, have agreed to embed innocent participants to uncover the issues that plague the facility. This season, the participants will face the biggest challenge of their lives in an effort to rid the jail

of contraband and corruption before it is too late.

HOMICIDE HUNTER

New episodes on Thursdays at 22:00

Lt Joe Kenda spent 23 years in the Colorado Springs Police Department, where he amassed a lifetime of memories catching killers and helping solve close to 400 homicide investigations. The vivid memories are brought back to life in this series, as Kenda reopens his ‘Murder Books’ for viewers – folders in which every detail of his murder cases are held – to revisit the most disturbing cases still haunting him today. As he details the process of how he solved the crimes, Kenda also embarks on a personal journey, coming to terms with long-suppressed nightmares. (10x60’)
