TNT has greenlit a Cold Justice spinoff, effectively turning the series into a real-life investigative franchise. The new series will follow a duo of crime experts as they ‘travel the country to assist local law enforcement in closing long-unsolved cases.’ In the case of the spinoff, however, they will be dealing with sex crimes rather than homicides.
TNT has ordered ten episodes of the as yet untitled series from Wolf Reality and Magic Elves – with plans for it to premiere in Spring 2015. Cold Justice expert Kelly Siegler will serve as one of the new program’s executive producers. For more, follow the jump.
Just as America’s Most Wanted developed a reputation for finding fugitives from justice, TNT’s Cold Justice is getting a reputation for cracking cold cases and finding justice for victims of unsolved homicides. That’s no doubt part of the reason that the show has grown its audience which, in turn, has led TNT to greenlight the show for a third season.
Follow the jump for further details – and a pre-second season Q&A with Kelly & Yolanda.
TNT’s Cold Justice features Kelly Siegler, a former prosecutor, and Yolanda McClary, a former crime scene investigator as they tackle murder investigations that have gone for years without answers or closure. It’s a unique concept for an unscripted series – and one that has gotten results.
Leading into the show’s second season, TNT will be running marathon the first season, beginning Friday, June 20th (3am/2C) leading into the second season premiere, Stranded (Bay City, Texas) – in the summer premiere of Cold Justice, Siegler and McClary head to Bay City, Tex., to search for new clues in the case of a single mother who was killed in 1988 after a night out at a club.
In response to fan demand, the second season will feature Justice Served – a special episode, hosted by John Walsh, that will look at the actual results of Siegler and McClary’s investigations. For details, follow the jump.
