Criminal Documentary Series 35 Serial Killers the World Wants to Forget coming to TVNZ

 

ABC Commercial today announced it has sold the rights to the criminal documentary series 35 Serial Killers the World Wants to Forget (13 x 60 mins) to New Zealand’s national public broadcaster TVNZ.

The agreement will see TVNZ secure the broadcast rights to the series for two years, with the factual programme set to air in New Zealand sometime later in 2018.

35 Serial Killers the World Wants to Forget looks deeply into contemporary killers, from the most meticulous murderer of modern times and the owner of the ‘House of Horrors’, Sacramento’s Dorothea Puente, to educated killers like Dr Harold Shipman, who is thought to have killed nearly 300 of his patients.

Other high-profile murderers examined throughout the series include Ted Kaczynski, Richard Ramirez, Charles Manson, Michael Lupo, Peter Sutcliffe, Rodney Alcala, the Hillside Stranglers, the Ken & Barbie Killers and more.

“ABC Commercial is pleased to bring this hard-hitting criminal documentary series to TVNZ,” said Jessica Ellis, Head of ABC Content Sales and Distribution. “35 Serial Killers was one of ABC Commercial’s most talked about programmes at this year’s MIPTV conference in Cannes and I am sure this riveting series will be well received by New Zealand audiences.”

Using file vision, reenactments, eyewitness accounts and interviews with experts, friends and family, this 13-part investigative series analyses the minds and actions of the world’s most heinous criminals.
