Building on the record-breaking success of series one, UK independent production company Arrow Media and Canada’s Saloon Media have been commissioned for a second series of See No Evil (13x60’) by Investigation Discovery US and Bell Media’s French language broadcaster Canal D, in Canada.
The production companies have continued the innovation of using real closed-circuit television (CCTV) to reveal more shocking murder mysteries – one frame at a time. Fingerprints and DNA were once the smoking gun, but now video proves to be the most useful to authorities in helping to solve crime.
What will it capture: a victim’s walk to their doom or a murderer hiding all-important evidence? Using actual CCTV footage, first-person interviews with family, friends and investigators, along with in-the-moment style recreations, the ground-breaking series takes viewers on an emotional rollercoaster ride through a timeline of a crime.
At the time of its debut in 2015, the first season of See No Evil was Investigation Discovery’s #1 series. Series two will premiere with the story of Amy Lord from Boston, who disappeared after failing to show up for a meeting at work. Viewers will witness Lord’s abduction, captured by CCTV and follow the investigation team as they piece together exactly how her murder was committed.
The Executive Producer for Arrow Media is Thomas Viner. Michael Kot is Executive Producer for Saloon Media. For Investigation Discovery US, the Executive Producer is Tim Baney, the SVP of Production is Sara Kozak, the General Manager is Kevin Bennett, and the Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel is Henry Schleiff. See No Evil is distributed internationally by eOne.
Michael Kot, Executive Producer, Saloon Media says: “Saloon is excited to be working on a second season of See No Evil, which continues to explore the double-edged sword of our surveillance culture. We may wonder if it’s worth putting cameras everywhere and losing our privacy, but it often turns out that the cameras can also be a tool for justice. "
Thomas Viner, Executive Producer, Arrow Media, says, “See No Evil is a great example of the kind of utterly involving storytelling that Arrow is known for. We’re delighted that series one proved so successful with viewers, and with the new series, we’re moving things forwards again. These episodes feature astonishing crimes, nail-biting investigations, and above all more CCTV and surveillance video than ever before.”
