Investigation Discovery recently announced that bestselling author James Patterson, perhaps most famed for his thrillers like the Alex Cross series of novels, is teaming with the network to produce the new true-crime series Murder Is Forever, coming to ID in January.
This is Patterson’s first foray into true-crime television, and the stories featured in the series are based upon the authentic stories featured in Patterson’s upcoming paperback books that will be available starting Jan. 2.
“My goal for both the books and television show was to create a groundbreaking series that shatters the true crime mold and attracts the widest possible audience,” Patterson said in an ID relase. “These stories won’t disappoint readers or viewers – and they’ll be shocked that they actually happened.”
Discovery’s ‘Manhunt: Unabomber’ isn’t the first TV movie
