Investigation Discovery is calling the cops. The true-crime cable net said today that it has greenlighted I Am Homicide, a docuseries that will follow a Charlotte, NC, detective “with more than a 90% success rate” as he works cases. The hourlong program is set for a June premiere.
From ID’s description: “Detective Garry McFadden is an officer unlike any other. Fully immersing himself in every corner of Charlotte to protect and serve the community, [he] uses his street smarts to work the neighborhoods and gather critical information for leads, no matter how dangerous. Chances are, when the call comes in, Detective McFadden knows those involved – whether it’s the victim, the family members…or even the perpetrator. Every day, he risks his life by trusting the streets he calls home. … This unique look at justice shows McFadden’s fiery passion; all the while he’s wearing the best suits in town. And, after 35 years on the force, he shows no signs of slowing down.”
“Garry McFadden is truly an original – with his larger-than-life personality, Garry doesn’t just solve crimes, he cares passionately about helping his community,” said Jane Latman, SVP Development at ID. “This series will help viewers understand both the intricacies of detective work and the incredible legacy Garry is creating in Charlotte.”
I Am Homicide is produced by Blackfin, and the company’s Geno McDermott, Alexa Conway and Patrick Conway executive produce. Diana Sperrazza is executive producer for Investigation Discovery.
