Oxygen Media Rebrands to Crime Destination Network This Summer

The Cable Network is Hoping Crime Pays!

Oxygen, which recently expanded its “Crime Time” weekend programming block to four days per week (Friday through Monday), is now taking a larger leap into a total crime destination for females effective this summer. Upcoming new programs targeted to the rebrand are “Three Days to Live,” which debuts on Sunday, March 5; “Cold Justice” from “Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf; and “The Jury Speaks.” The latter two debut in third quarter 2017.

“Three Days to Live,” narrated by news correspondent SuChin Pak, delves into the crucial days immediately following a harrowing abduction with vivid, visceral recreations and first-hand interviews from authorities and loved ones. “Cold Justice” is a real life crime series that follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and her team of detectives as they dig into small town murder cases that have lingered for years without answers or closure. And “The Jury Speaks” is self-contained, true-crime series that reexamines some of the most high-profile and controversial cases through the eyes of the original jury.

Oxygen, additionally, now features a weekly podcast called “Martinis & Murder,” hosted by John Thrasher and Daryn Carp, which takes an in-depth look at a particular murder or murderer.
