Oxygen Media, the network for high-quality crime programming, debuts new original series “In Ice Cold Blood” on Sunday, April 1 at 7pm ET/PT. Hosted and executive produced by Grammy and NAACP Image Award winner Ice-T (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”).
The series spotlights shocking true stories involving sex, money, murder – or a fatal cocktail of all three. Told through in-depth interviews, reenactments and archival footage, each hour-long episode delves into an edgy mystery filled with expert detective work, unexpected turns and stunning revelations.
In Ice Cold Blood is a chilling depiction of basic human desires unbridled, taking viewers on a shocking, unexpected ride,” says Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “Ice-T’s appreciation for the true crime space, and his ability to draw the viewer in, take the series to another level.”
Executive Producer Ice-T adds, “I’m glad to call Oxygen home with a series that speaks to me as a true crime fan. Each story is extreme but very real, making it a natural fit for me to explore with the audience.”
When two of the most basic human desires – sex and money – cloud our judgment with lust and greed, they run the risk of dangerous consequences. This series exposes real-life cases where unhinged passion and extreme greed have motivated someone enough to kill.
As first-hand detectives and victims’ friends and family members recount each case, captivating recreations come together to bring each ruthless murder story to life. In the series premiere, a military veteran is missing and a young student is murdered in what appears to be a crime of passion.
But the discovery of a secret payout leads police on a wild chase. Ice-T lends his distinct voice to the series, guiding viewers through each case in a way that only he can.
