Dick Wolf is getting another reality series on basic cable.
A&E has handed an 8 episode series order to D.O.A., a reality series which is poised to re-examine controversial murder cases. This marks the second “true crime” series that Wolf has gotten on air in recent years, with the other, Cold Justice, set to return to TNT for the remainder of its second season this Summer.
D.O.A. follows a team of elite homicide detectives from around the country who will re-examine controversial murder cases in which unresolved questions still linger long after the verdict was determined. The elite team consist of Chicago PD homicide detective Michelle Wood, Miami-Dade Police Department detective Joe Schillaci and retired NYPD detective Kevin “Spider” Gannon.
The true crime series is set to enter production this Spring for a 2014 premiere. D.O.A. is being produced for A&E by Wolf Reality and Left/Right. The executive producers are Dick Wolf, Tom Thayer, Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Laura Fleury and Brad Holcman.
“A&E has long been an innovator in crime and justice programming,” said David McKillop, Executive Vice President and General Manager of A&E Network. “We are looking to expand on our industry leading position by partnering with the master of the genre, Dick Wolf, on such a fascinating and unique new series.”
