5 True Crime TV Shows Based On Books That You Probably Didn’t Realize Were Adaptations

It seems to be the golden age of book-to-TV adaptations, especially when it comes to true crime. And if your true crime obsession runs as deeply as mine, I know you probably aren’t content to just watch a TV show. You want to Google the case, read through every article you can find, and if available, read the book the show is based upon. But did you know the following true crime shows were based on books and the reporting done by their authors? If you didn’t, you have more than a few books to add to your reading list this week.

Watching a true crime show and reading a true crime book can be entirely different experiences. Shows tend to relish in the drama. Those stomach-dropping moments when a new piece of evidence is discovered, the unforgettable characters who were involved with the case, and the most gruesome

Oxygen’s 10 New True Crime Shows Will Make You Never Want To Leave Your Couch Again

A warning to all armchair detectives: You might have trouble leaving your living room this summer. That’s because Oxygen has added 10 new true crime shows to its lineup. On top of that, the network will also show the U.S. premiere of Serial Killer with Piers Morgan.

Last year, Oxygen rebranded itself as the go-to network for true crime and it’s found success with this new model. The recent two-part series, Aaron Hernandez Uncovered, which delved deeper into the murder charges against the football player and how it led to his tragic death, was the most watched program in the network’s history. “The response from the true crime community has been overwhelming,” Rod Aissa, the Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development of Oxygen, said in a statement.

This means, Oxygen is looking to capitalize off its successful run and Americans love of true

Season 2 of "Murder Chose Me" is "more gritty, more raw and shows the actual crimes" – KSLA

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) –

Rod Demery worked more than 250 cases in his 14 years as a Shreveport police homicide detective, solving and getting confessions in all of them.

Another 10 will be highlighted in the second season of his show, “Murder Chose Me.”

“I don’t know that there’s a systematic way of doing it or even a logical way of doing it,” he said in discussing this season’s lineup.

“It’s just the cases that are forefront in my mind.”

Season 2 of the true crime show based on real cases that Demery handled premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Investigation Discovery.

And this time around, he said, the focus is more on the cases than on him.

“I kinda like Season 2 better than one,” Demery said.

“One is kinda an introduction. It’s really intimate. It shows who I am.

The Best TV Shows You Can Actually Download From Netflix

She’s Gotta Have It (2017- )

Nola Darling is an artist, an activist, a Brooklynite, and a sex-positive polyamorous pansexual with three emotionally volatile boyfriends. But who is she? Spike Lee made his directorial debut with 1986’s She’s Gotta Have It, and 30 years later, expands the character study (with the help of a writer’s room including his sister Joie Lee, and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage) into his first TV series, a rhythmic exploration of sex, Brooklyn, and black life. Lee’s signature, syncopated style — bright colors, up-close-and-personal confessionals, jolts of pop music and album art, Bruce Hornsby’s melancholy piano filling the gaps — is intact, tracking Nola through the

NC Mom Charged After Viral Video Apparently Shows 1-Year-Old Smoking Marijuana

 

Criminal charges have been filed in North Carolina against a 20-year-old mother whose toddler was apparently seen smoking marijuana in video footage posted to Facebook that went viral, PEOPLE confirms.

More than 1.5 million people watched the video — and many of them contacted authorities, who began investigating the mother, who appears to have been the one who posted the video, a statement from Raleigh police says.

The 10-second clip shows the child, who is 1, in a car seat as an adult’s hand enters the frame holding what police allege is a marijuana cigarette.

The adult holds the joint to the child’s lips. The child inhales and lets out a puff of white smoke.
