“Oxygen Media, the network for high-quality crime programming, premieres the new original series Criminal Confessions, which debuts Sunday, October 1 at 7pm ET/PT. From Executive Producer Dick Wolf and Shed Media, the series delves into the psychological showdown that transpires inside actual police interrogation rooms between investigators and suspects and dissects what it takes to yield a confession. Each hour-long episode takes viewers through the emotional twists and turns of a real homicide case from the 911 call to the crime scene and leading up to the interrogation room where detectives corner their prime suspect. The police officers and detectives will walk us through their strategy while interviews with the suspects’ and victims’ friends and family shed light on the heartbreaking details, taking viewers on an emotional journey with the hope of finding justice. In every case, the interrogating officer will “break” the suspect and get a shocking reveal of what led to the atrocious crime.
“Criminal Confessions joins Cold Justice as our second series from Dick Wolf, offering armchair detectives at home the thrilling opportunity to watch as both a case, and a confession, come to a head,” said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “The series celebrates the skill and talent of the amazing detectives who are passionately committed to finding the truth and justice.”
