CBS Reality’s first original series kicked off with a bang last week.
Killer Doctors On Death Row debuted on CBS Reality across two nights on Monday September 7th to some 234 000 viewers; giving the channel its best weekday audience so far this year. Additionally, Killer Doctors On Death Row was sampled by half a million viewers during its first week.
The un-scripted series is one of the first major original series to air on CBS Reality, who have been forging a path into originals since AMC Networks International acquired Chellomedia’s international channels business (including the UK portfolio of CBS Action, CBS Reality etc). The channel has other such original series in the pipeline, including Donal MacIntyre: Uncolved, which is set to premiere in October.
A three-way co-production between AMC Networks International – Zone, Sky Vision and Foxtel Australia, Killer Doctors On Death Row explores the dark and sinister motives of medical professionals who commit the biggest abuse of trust with their patients. Instead of using their expertise and access to drugs to heal their patient’s illnesses, they use their power to murder unsuspecting victims. This series will delve deep into these sinister acts committed by the featured doctors and nurses and will attempt to uncover the evidence and motive behind each case.
