Leading true crime network Investigation Discovery (ID), in partnership with Weinstein Television, Jupiter Entertainment and American Media, Inc., is taking a 360-degree look into the investigation and 2011 trial of Casey Anthony for the murder of her daughter Caylee in the hit new show, Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery.
Featuring new evidence, insight from those closest to the Anthony family, and never-before-seen footage of Casey, the bombshell program offers a definitive look at every angle of the whirlwind trial and investigation.
From the team that created ID’s no. 1 event series, JonBenét Ramsey: An American Murder Mystery, in 2016, Casey Anthony rips open the explosive investigation to re-examine the key players, puzzling actions and questionable motives behind one of the most captivating and controversial cases of all-time.
“Some cases just capture the nation’s attention and this case was a firestorm — the panicked search for a missing toddler, a frantic family, police sent to chase suspects who may or may not exist, media demanding answers and devastated grandparents caught between their daughter’s lies and their desperation to find their granddaughter alive,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “Sex, betrayal and deceit are at the heart of this series, which will make viewers feel as if they are in the room for the bombshell prosecution of Casey Anthony as she was tried in both the court of law and, ultimately, the court of public opinion.”
“This is an in-depth investigation that not only underscores our heritage in true investigative journalism but also the extraordinary talent and passion that Investigation Discovery, The Weinstein Company and the nation’s leading true crime producer Jupiter Entertainment possess in delivering a riveting television experience unlike any other,” said Dylan Howard, Chief Content Officer of American Media, Inc. “More than a shocking expose into one of the biggest murder mysteries in recent history, it is the definitive — and revelatory — look inside the epic case that delivered more twists and turns than any Hollywood blockbuster.”
The special three-night television event debuts worldwide Sunday, April 9 at 10/9c on ID.
