Dan Abrams's Law&Crime Network Announces Launch of Syndicated Series 'Prime Crime' with Litton
New York, September 8, 2021 - The Law&Crime Network, in partnership with Litton Entertainment, has announced the launch of a new syndicated true crime program Prime Crime, hosted and executive produced by attorney Jesse Weber and the return of its flagship syndicated daily news magazine Law&Crime Daily for a second season.
Premiering the week of September 13, Law&Crime’s second syndicated series Prime Crime puts a spotlight on infamously controversial stories that have shocked investigators and the public alike. Host and New York attorney Jesse Weber will take a deep investigative dive into sinister crime stories, such as mapping out the campaign of terror of Samuel Little, the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history, analyzing the brutal murder of Dee Dee Blanchard, whose death and history of abuse of her daughter, Gypsy, became the subject of a hit Hulu series, or breaking down the notorious Slender Man stabbing, an act motivated by an eerie Internet creature. Weber will unpack these details to uncover the real killers and how they were brought to justice. Together with experts and the actual players involved in the cases, Weber will revisit the police interrogation tapes, bodycam footage, 911 phone calls and the most explosive moments in court.
“The renewal of Law&Crime Daily shows the appetite for legal analysis and true-crime news as it gives viewers a deep-dive into today’s biggest investigations, and with the launch of Prime Crime, we will continue to provide audiences an insider’s view of some of the most perplexing cases. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Litton Entertainment and expand into new audiences,” said Rachel Stockman, president of Law&Crime Network.
New York City public defender and Law&Crime Daily host Brian Buckmire covers the nation’s biggest trials from both the studio and the courtroom. On the ground for real-time, breaking news in the murder trial of ex-police officer Derek Chauvin, Buckmire became a familiar face with the historic guilty verdict that rocked the nation. The daily true crime show continues to provide a no-holds-barred examination of America’s most-watched cases like millionaire real estate scion Robert Durst’s unusual homicide trial and the decades-long investigation and extensive indictments against R&B singer R. Kelly. Through exclusive footage, interviews and analysis from the top legal experts in the country, the second season of Law&Crime Daily promises an unbridled analysis of the biggest legal and true crime stories. The new season begins on September 13.
