Spike Press Release – Spike TV Announces New Docuseries Initiative “Spike Serialized”

November 10th, 2016 by SPIKE Press

 SPIKE TV ANNOUNCES NEW DOCUSERIES INITIATIVE

“Spike Serialized” To Showcase Multi-Episode Series That Take A Compelling Look At Fascinating And Often-Controversial Subjects Or Individuals

Network Announces New Project, “It Was Him,” On The Shocking Investigation Of Ed Edwards And His Ties To Many Of The Most High Profile Murders Over The Last Few Decades

Recently Announced “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” And “The John McAFee Project” To Fall Under The “Spike Serialized” Banner

 

New York, NY, November 10, 2016 – Spike TV is launching a new docuseries initiative, “Spike Serialized” that will consist of multi-episode series that take a provocative, in-depth look into subjects or individuals that will be both eye-opening and thought-provoking.

The topics and characters explored will run the gamut from hot-button areas such as crime and race to never-before-seen look at some of society’s most intriguing individuals.

“The Spike Serialized initiative will showcase topics or individuals that are not only relevant and entertaining, but will also be impactful and create a national dialogue,” said Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series.

On the heels of the “Spike Serialized” announcement the network has greenlit the six-episode docuseries, “It Was Him.” The new series examines the infamous cold-blooded murderer Ed Edwards through the lens of the astonishing investigation led by his grandson, Wayne Wolfe and veteran police detective John Cameron. Spike’s six-part documentary series will be produced by Objective Films.

Recently, Spike announced “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story,” from Executive Producer Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Weinstein Television, which will fall under the “Spike Serialized” banner.

“TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” is a compelling, six-part documentary event series tells the story of Kalief Browder, a young African-American student who spent three years on Rikers Island without ever being convicted of a crime. Executive Producers for “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” include Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, Harvey Weinstein, David Glasser, Jenner Furst, Nick Sandow, Julia Willoughby Nason, and Michael Gasparro.

The previously announced “John McAfee Project” will now fall under the “Spike Serialized” umbrella as well. Both projects are slated to air in 2017.

“The John McAfee Project” explores the life of virus software creator John McAfee and will reveal unanswered questions about his life ranging from drug-fueled college days in England to learning to battle computer viruses early in his career at Lockeed in the 1980’s, to starting McAfee and Associates in 1987, to a 2012 murder investigation in Belize. But it’s more than just a murder mystery, it’s a story of the man who invented modern day paranoia and injected his manufactured paranoia into the cultural zeitgeist. Is he certifiably insane or insanely credible? Has the security software guru become a gun-toting, paranoid killer who has lost touch with reality? Or does he have nefarious enemies out to destroy him and crumble his empire? Or is the man who earned enormous success and wealth based on the public’s online security fears and paranoia playing another mind-game? “The John McAfee Project” will consist of six episodes and is directed and executive produced by Billy Corben.

Sharon Levy is Spike’s Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chachi Senior is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike and Justin Lacob, Vice President, Original Series will oversee “It Was Him” and “The John McAfee Project” for the network.

Spike TV is available in 91.4 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks.  A unit of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Viacom Media Networks is one of the world’s leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms.  Spike TV’s Internet address is www.spike.com and for up-to-the-minute and archival press information and photographs, visit Spike TV’s press site at http://www.spike.com/press.  Follow us on Twitter @spiketvpr for the latest in breaking news updates, behind-the-scenes information and photos.

Spike Press Release – Spike TV and Objective Media Group Present a Six-Part Documentary Series, “It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards”

November 10th, 2016 by SPIKE Press

WAS IT HIM?

IS ED EDWARDS THE MOST INFAMOUS SERIAL KILLER IN AMERICAN HISTORY?

HIS GRANDSON IS OUT TO FIND THE TRUTH WITH THE HELP OF VETERAN COLD CASE INVESTIGATOR DET. JOHN CAMERON

Spike TV and Objective Media Group Present a Six-Part Documentary Series,

“It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards,” on the Shocking Investigation That Connects the Convicted Killer to Many of the Most Publicized Murders of the 20th Century

New York, NY, November 10, 2016 – Wayne Wolfe has a shocking and terrible family secret. Less than a year ago, he discovered that his real grandfather was the deceased, convicted killer Ed Edwards. Possibly the most notorious serial killer in American history, he was convicted of five cold cases in his 70s, but had potentially embarked on a decades-long murder spree. Spike TV examines the infamous cold-blooded murderer through the lens of the astonishing investigation led by Wolfe and veteran police detective John Cameron in the new documentary series “It Was Him.”

Spike’s si-part documentary series was developed by Jimmy Fox of Objective Media Group, who will executive produce, along with the show-running team Jackson Nguyen and Todd Crites of Turn Left Productions. It began production in the fall of 2016.

Shortly after determining that Edwards was his grandfather, Wolfe learned of the incredibly compelling link between him and a string of astonishingly high-profile murders. In an attempt to shed light on his family history and find closure for his father, Wolfe joined forces with the investigator John Cameron. Cameron, a cold-case expert and retired detective based in Great Falls, Montana, has been investigating the infamous mass murderer Edwards for almost a decade.

Cameron met Edwards in 2008 while working on the parole board in Montana. In this position, he was able to access undisclosed information that points to the fact that Edwards could be responsible for some of the most high-profile crimes of our generation.

The search for the truth has haunted the seasoned detective and drives him to seek answers. Cameron’s meticulously compiled evidence has Edwards as the ultimate suspect in some of the most well-known murder cases, including the Zodiac Killer, Laci Peterson and many more.

Edwards was arrested in 2009 and found guilty of five grisly murders over 20 years, all of which involved kidnapping, shootings, stabbings, torture, auto theft, all under an assumed identity. He died of natural causes in prison in 2011, four months before his execution.

Objective Media Group, the All3 based company, currently produces the Emmy-nominated CNN series “United Shades of America” and CNBC’s “Make Me a Millionaire Inventor,” as well as upcoming series “Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent,” for Investigation Discovery, “Hollywood Darlings” for POP and scripted drama “The Arrangement” for E!. Executive Producers for Objective Media Group/All3Media America include Jimmy Fox, Layla Smith and Greg Lipstone. Wayne Wolfe, Leonid Leonov and Kenny Dale Borill will also serve as Executive Producers.

“It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards” will be part of the network’s new Spike Serialized series of non-scripted projects, along with the previously announced, “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” and “The John McAfee Project.” Spike Serialized series take a compelling, in-depth look into fascinating and often controversial subjects or individuals.

Sharon Levy is Spike’s Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chachi Senior is Senior Vice President of Original Series for Spike and Justin Lacob, Vice President, Original Series will oversee “It Was Him” for the network.

Spike TV is available in 91.4 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks.  A unit of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Viacom Media Networks is one of the world’s leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms.  Spike TV’s Internet address is www.spike.com and for up-to-the-minute and archival press information and photographs, visit Spike TV’s press site at http://www.spike.com/press.
