Law&Crime, the leading 24/7 true crime and live trial network, is adding Prime Crime Tonight hosted by Jesse Weber to its primetime programming slate. The new true crime program takes a deep dive into the most high profile and shocking criminal cases that have garnered national attention in recent years.
Premiering on September 25th after Law&Crime Daily, the show will analyse theories surrounding Scott Peterson murdering his pregnant wife, will dig into why Chris Watts brutally killed his whole family, and will map out the Golden State Killer’s campaign of terror. The true crime series will also focus on ongoing cases such as Lori Vallow Daybell, the Idaho mother who has been accused of murdering her two children, and the conspiracy of the Dan Markel assassination, who investigators believe was killed as part of a murder-for-hire motivated by Markel’s divorce. Weber will unpack these details to try and figure out what is at play and who could or should be held accountable.
Prime Crime Tonight is hosted by Jesse Weber, who will sit down with experts as well as the actual players involved in the cases. Together, they will revisit the police interrogation tapes, the bodycam footage, 911 phone calls, and the most explosive moments in court.
“There is incredible interest in the True Crime format but many of these infamous cases that really impacted the psyche of the country have never been analysed in detail like this before,” said Law&Crime President Rachel Stockman. “We’re going back the the original sources, first hand accounts and archival footage to offer viewers new and exclusive insights into the cases that riveted the nation.”
