Digital streamer CBS All Access has ordered a new original straight-to-series order for “Interrogation,” which will be produced by CBS Television Studios and Fabrik Entertainment. Co-creators Anders Weidemann (“30 Degrees In February”) and John Mankiewicz (“House of Cards,” “Bosch”) will serve as executive producers alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate.
The logline: “Interrogation” is based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. Each episode is structured around an interrogation taken directly from the real police case files. The first nine episodes of the series will be available to watch in any order, and the conclusive season finale will be released at a later date.
“Interrogation” joins CBS All Access’ increasing slate of original series, which currently includes “Star Trek: Discovery,” “The Good Fight,” “No Activity,” “Strange Angel,” “One Dollar” and “Tell Me a Story;” and upcoming “Why Women Kill,” animated “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” a new untitled “Star Trek” series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, and the reboot of “Twilight Zone.”
