CBS Studios International and AMC Networks International are teaming with ITN Productions and TCB Media Rights on a new ten-part true crime series to premiere in the UK, Poland and Africa in late 2016.

Encounters with Evil aims to bring viewers face-to-face with the world’s most infamous killers. The series will draw upon archive footage of the time combining it with new insights and analysis as well as interviews with those closest to the cases. Each episode looks at a number of key cases and a panel of experts examine and reveal what drove each killer to commit their crimes.

“We are thrilled to be working with ITN Productions and TCB Media Rights to bring a brand new and exclusive title to the CBS Reality portfolio,” said Sam Rowden, director of programming, CBS Reality and New Media. “With a mix of compelling cases, coupled with archive footage bringing the audience closer to the crime scene and the people who were closest to the tragedies, we feel Encounters with Evil will resonate well with our dedicated CBS Reality audience.”

The series will be executive produced by Ian Russell, head of international programming and ITN Productions and series produced by Nick Kenton. It will be distributed beyond the UK and Europe by TCB Media Rights which provided finance for the co-production. Russell remarked: “Drawing upon ITN’s extensive archive we have been able to bring an immediacy to these horrific crimes while also providing a new perspective on their motivations and the personal history that shaped them. Encounters with Evil enables audiences to look into the eyes of a killer and, armed with a new perspective, judge them for themselves.”
