Really serves up Turner’s Cold Justice

Cold JusticeThematic UK pay TV channel Really has acquired two seasons of the Dick Wolf-produced Cold Justice as it moves further into the real crime genre.

The UKTV-owned channel took the 8x60mins season one and 10x60mins season two from distributor Endemol Worldwide Distribution.

The show, originally produced for Turner network TNT by Wolf Films and Magical Elves – this week acquired by the UK’s Tinopolis Group, follows a former Texas prosecutor and a crime scene investigator as they travel the US helping agencies solve violent crimes.

“We’re investing more in ‘real crime’ programming for the channel as the genre continues to attract viewers and stimulate a lot of conversation on our social platforms,” said Really’s general manager Clare Laycock.

“Recent successes such as I Survived Evil show Really viewers are highly engaged by exciting real life stories so I am confident they will be captivated by this gripping new show.”

UKTV’s acquisitions and coproductions manager Emma Sparks brokered the deal with EWD’s UK and Ireland sales director Gisela Asimus-Minnberg.

Season one launches in March.
