“We’re thrilled to bring audiences a new season of Murder She Solved: True Crime,” says John Ritchie, Executive Producer, Force Four Entertainment. “This series was our first foray into factual crime programming.

The broad appeal of this series, which draws upon the suspense and intrigue of real police cases, reflects our ongoing commitment to compelling storytelling.”
Produced by the Vancouver-based, award-winning production company, Force Four Entertainment in association with Mystique Films, and developed and produced in collaboration with Corus Entertainment’s OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada), each episode focuses on a different high-profile murder, case, told from the perspective of the female investigator who plays a key role in cracking the case. Season 2 cases include a woman known as the Black Widow; a mensa member whose intolerance of loud noise sends him over the edge; and a lone shark whose hired hitman gets the wrong woman. Viewers witness the challenges, setbacks and dramatic revelations these crime sleuths, and their teams, confront while piecing together complex homicide investigations.
“The first season focused on cases from across Canada, and we’ve now expanded the scope to include stories from the United States,” says Dana Johl, Series Producer. “We filmed in locations as diverse as Ontario, New York, Georgia, California, Florida and Texas. In every situation, we meet incredibly dedicated female sleuths, who, in their relentless pursuit of the truth, uncover the perpetrators of brutal crimes.”
With access to police files and resources, the series offers viewers a rare inside look at the fascinating details of a murder investigation.
