LONDON, Wednesday 31st May 2017: A+E Networks® UK has commissioned Woodcut Media to produce a new documentary series, Jo Frost on Killer Kids, which will premiere on Crime + Investigation in the UK this autumn.

The 4x60’ documentary series will explore the shocking subject of children who commit murder.  Each episode explores a different topic including children who kill a family member, children who kill at school and children who kill other children.  Presented by parenting expert Jo Frost, the series examines cases that left the nation shocked to the core, investigating what led these children to commit murder and asks the question, are some children born evil?

Jo Frost on Killer Kids is commissioned by Koulla Anastasi, Director of Crime + Investigation (CI) at A+E Networks® UK.

Anastasi commented: “We are a delighted to welcome Jo Frost to Crime + Investigation’s growing stable of talent. With her extensive experience of working closely with children and challenged families, Jo will add context and insight to this compelling and exclusive new UK commission.”

Jo Frost on Killer Kids is produced by Woodcut Media and co-produced with Krempelwood Entertainment.  Executive Producers are Diana Carter for A+E Networks UK, Jo Frost for Nanny Jo Productions, Kate Beal and Derren Lawford for Woodcut Media, alongside Series Producer Nick Mavroidakis who produced the hit World’s Most Evil Killers.

The series will be distributed internationally by Keshet International.

Kate Beal, CEO, Woodcut Media said: “Jo Frost’s unique take will offer a fresh approach to this challenging topic as we explore the question of whether people are born evil, or if it’s a case of nature or nurture.  Having forged a solid working relationship over the years with Crime + Investigation, we know this is the perfect platform to launch this fascinating new series.”

Jo Frost said: “How families function and observing behaviour patterns for decades led me very keen to develop this idea. Given Woodcut Media’s reputation in true crime, I knew they would be the perfect partner to team up with for this series. I’m extremely excited to be doing my debut documentary series for Crime + Investigation on such an important and yet gripping issue.”

Jo Frost on Killer Kids is due to air on Crime + Investigation in the UK in the autumn 2017.
