Electus International has partnered with Critical Content for global distribution of the true crime series The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey.

jonbenetAdditionally, a deal has been secured with Global Television in Canada for the simulcast rights to the show, which premieres in the US on CBS on 18 September.

The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey is a six-hour limited event docu-series that re-examines the unsolved mystery of JonBenet Ramsey’s murder, 20 years after the six-year-old beauty queen’s tragic death. It reunites the original investigators in the case with new experts, and together, they take a hard look at the case that captivated the world.

“True crime stories are one of the hottest trends in television right now, and we are thrilled to be working with Critical Content to bring The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey to the world,” said John Pollak, president of Electus International. “The JonBenet Ramsey murder is one of the most intriguing unsolved mysteries in history; 20 years later, audiences will be able to take another look at the case.”

Ramsey was found slain in the basement of her Colorado home in 1996, hours after she was reported missing. Officials, and public opinion, initially suspected her parents and older brother of the crime; the family was partially exonerated in 2003 and completely cleared of any wrongdoing in 2008. The case was reopened in 2009, but remains unsolved to this day.

“While the horrific story of JonBenet Ramsey happened in a small Colorado town, it quickly captured global interest given the mysterious details of her death,” said Critical Content president and COO Andrew Marcus. “This series, unlike any other, will re-examine the case, speak with key players involved in the original investigation, and provide new theories about what truly happened that fateful night.”
