EXCLUSIVE: Discovery is looking to take a different angle when it comes to real-life criminal investigations. In their new series, The Interrogation Room, the viewer is placed right where the investigation begins: the titular interrogation room. The new series will premiere at 10 PM ET/PT, January 4, 2018.
From home invasions to murders, The Interrogation Room will not only explore all facets of crime but will give viewers a look at the clever tactics used by detectives to obtain criminal confessions. The audience will be able to step into the rooms with detectives and suspects and listen, verbatim, to the chilling conversations that end with convictions.
The premiere episode of the 10-episode series will take place in Grand Rapids, Michigan where Detectives Marcus Glover and Marty Albert are faced with uncovering the truth behind what seems like a cold-blooded murder. Just after midnight, 34-year-old Brent Luttrell is found dead in the middle of a rural country road. With little evidence pointing to a suspect, detectives run with their only lead: the ex-boyfriend of Luttrell’s girlfriend, Ashley Hadder. But when one suspect turns into six, the case becomes a web of deceit, denial, and discord. With all interrogation rooms full, detectives must hone in on one to unmask the killer.
The Interrogation Room is produced for Discovery Channel by Red Marble Media with Kevin Fitzpatrick, Stephen Dost, and Jonathan Santos as Executive Producers. Jeanie Vink will serve as Senior Executive Producer for Discovery Channel.
