Investigation Discovery, the leading destination for true crime programming, announced today that it will greenlight a sophomore season of its hit series I AM HOMICIDE, following former homicide detective Garry McFadden. Det. McFadden is an officer unlike any other. He fully immerses himself on every street corner to protect and serve the community he holds dear. Det. McFadden uses his street smarts and, most importantly, his connection with the citizens of Charlotte Mecklenburg County that he has fostered for nearly three decades. His dedication to the pursuit of justice is equally as important as the lives of the families he has vowed to protect as if they were his own. I AM HOMICIDE will debut during 2Q of 2017 only on Investigation Discovery.
During each one-hour episode, McFadden showcases his unorthodox methods to explain how he solved the most precarious cases of his career. He’ll go anywhere, talk to anyone, with backup or not. With more than a 90-percent success rate with the investigations he pursues, he puts it all on the line to solve the crime – and it’s worked for more than 700 cases. This unique look at justice shows McFadden’s fiery passion; all the while he’s wearing the best suits in town. And, after thirty-five years on the force, he shows no signs of slowing down.
“Garry McFadden has a tenacious spirit with the personality to match, and our audiences who tuned in each and every week agree,” says Jane Latman SVP of Development for Investigation Discovery. “Given the turmoil between those who are tasked with serving and protecting and frustrated community members, Garry is a true example of that unifying voice so desperately needed in our nation today.“
I AM HOMICIDE is produced for Investigation Discovery by Blackfin. Executive producers for Blackfin are Geno McDermott, Alexa Conway and Patrick Conway. For Investigation Discovery, Diana Sperrazza is senior executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America.
