Netflix to Reboot ‘Unsolved Mysteries’

This Marks the Fifth Outlet for the Long-Running True Crime Series

True crime series “Unsolved Mysteries” (which aired on NBC from 1987 to 1997, CBS from 1997 to 1999, Lifetime in the 2001-02 season, and on former network Spike TV from 2008-10) will be revived by Netflix. The return of “Unsolved Mysteries” is from the original creators (Cosgrove/Meurer Productions) amd the producers of “Stranger Things” (21 Laps). The logline: This modern take on the classic series will maintain the chilling feeling viewers loved about the original, while also telling the stories through the lens of a premium Netflix documentary series. Each episode will focus on one mystery and once again will look to viewers to help aid investigators in closing the book on long outstanding cases.

Terry Dunn Meurer is the show on this all-new version of the show she co-created with fellow EP John Cosgrove. Shawn Levy and Josh Barry are executive producing for 21 Laps.
