January 15, 2020 - HLN (CNN's Headline News), which airs live news programming along with long-form docu-series is adding five new Original Series to the roster, plus six returning Original Series in 2020, it was announced by Ken Jautz, executive vice president, CNN.

Last year HLN doubled down on original series production exclusively in the crime and investigation genre, a longtime area of expertise for our network in both live news coverage and long-form programming. That strategy proved successful and gave the network a robust library of quality series that resonates with our audience. And this year, we are giving the viewers more of what they crave. Finally, after an eight-year wait, brand new episodes of Forensic Files, still the best-known of all crime documentaries, will air in February, said Jautz.

HLN's long form programming is comprised of internally produced and commissioned multi-part series.

Following are descriptions for the HLN Original Series premiering in 2020:

VENGEANCE: KILLER COWORKERS (Series premiere: Sunday, January 5; 10, one-hour episodes) The third installment of HLN's Original Series VENGEANCE returns with a 10-episode run of VENGEANCE: Killer Coworkers. The show profiles victims who met their killers at work. Each one-hour episode takes viewers through the twists and turns of the investigation, the arrest, and the quest for justice. VENGEANCE: Killer Coworkers is produced for HLN by Sky Vision.

FORENSIC FILES II (Series premiere Sunday, February 23; 16, 30-minute episodes) Long considered the gold standard of crime docu-series, Forensic Files returns after an eight-year production hiatus with 16 new mysteries, now produced by CNN Development for HLN under the guidance of executive producer Nancy Duffy. Forensic Files II, continues the franchise - featuring the amazing work of scientists and investigators who use cutting edge forensics to crack the most baffling criminal cases. Acclaimed film, stage and television actor Bill Camp (Dark Waters, Joker, The Night Of) is the narrator.

SEX & MURDER (Series premiere Monday, March 9, six, one-hour episodes) Sex and Murder are often tied together in criminal investigations.

THE KILLER TRUTH (Series premiere 2020, eight, one-hour episodes) There are two sides to every story, but in a murder, one side dies with the victim.

These five distinct points of view may include the victim's family, the lead detective, a reporter who covered the case, the suspect linked to the crime, the defense attorney, and finally, even the killer. The five perspectives take us through the twists and turns of each case, create a full picture of the crime, and ultimately lead to justice. The Killer Truth is produced for HLN by Catalina Content, LLC
