Upcoming series: True Pulp Murder, Global, Jan. 5

True Crime Documentary Series Debuting

Saturday, January 5 at 10:30 P.M. ET/PT on Global Television

Canada’s leading homicide investigators and crime novelists agree on one thing: Fact is stranger than fiction. The truth is at its most chilling and compelling in TRUE PULP MURDER, a new original series from Make Believe Media, debuting Saturday January 5, 2008 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Global Television.

Each episode of TRUE PULP MURDER pairs a homicide investigator with one real life author and our fictional graphic novelist. Together they dissect and bring to audiences an assortment of real life murders and their resolutions. Drawn from the case files of the actual cops who solved the mysteries, each episode unravels one macabre mystery in this 13 x 30 series.

TRUE PULP MURDER marries graphic novel stylings with commentary by crime writers. It allows viewers to see the actual events from the point of view of detectives who worked the case, fiction writers who wrote similar stories and a sexy, film noir-ish narrator. It is one part documentary, one part graphic novel, and one part hard-bitten detective drama.
