We don't know what's gotten into the folks over at Lifetime but they have been putting out some heat in the last few years! They've given us "The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel", "The Seven Deadly Sins Series"including "Wrath" and "Greed", "Line Sisters", "Single Black Female" and now, something that will appeal to those of us with a thing for true crime!
Lifetime expands the network’s unscripted slate with true crime content with three new original series – #TextMeWhenYouGetHome; Meet Marry Murder and Phrogging: Hider in My House, along with UK import Sleeping with a Killer – for Life & Crime Mondays. The new true crime series explore the unthinkable – from tragic stories of women preyed upon by strangers, or even by those in their own beds, to discovering people, like parasites, living unknown within their walls. The true crime night will kick off with #TextMeWhenYouGetHome and Sleeping with a Killer beginning June 6th, at 9p/8c with Phrogging: Hider in My House and Meet Marry Murder debuting later this summer.
Lifetime hit the nail on the head with these series! “True crime has proven to be addictive, and people cannot get enough,” said Amy Winter, EVP and Head of Programming, Lifetime and LMN. “Our Ripped From the Headlines movies have really struck a chord with our audiences and we are excited to expand our crime offerings with these new unscripted series joining the network. Lifetime is the perfect home for these cautionary, fascinating and stranger-than-fiction programs.”
The creative team over at Lifetime definitely tapped into an entirely different audience with these. The world has had an obsession with "true crime" stories for a while now and, we feel, those stories have had an increase in popularity since the pandemic. With more and more podcasts and TikToks fueling the flames for "true crime" lovers, these stories have spread like wildfire.
It's all going down June 6th on Lifetime!
