Series returns with new episodes on March 28th
A+E Networks® Poland has greenlit a second 6-episode season of local series Killer Women (original title: Polskie zabójczynie), set to premiere on Crime+Investigation Polsat (CI Polsat) this spring, on March 28th.
According to European Union statistics, one third of women in Poland’s jails are guilty of murder: Killer Women focuses on the real-life stories of Polish females accused and sentenced for killing.
Agnieszka Kubiak, Head of Content Development and Creative at A+E Networks Poland, will continue to serve as Executive Producer. The show is produced by Polish production company Like Vision.
Season Two will feature crime cases that shocked Poles and dominated news headlines for weeks. Among these will be the story of Madzia’s mother – Katarzyna W. who started a nationwide search by falsely claiming that her daughter was kidnapped. With the help of police officers, detectives, witnesses and a psychologist, we will try to understand her motive. Was Madzia’s death truly a horrible accident or was this an act of infanticide?
Agnieszka Kubiak at A+E Networks Poland, said: “One of the reasons for the CI Polsat’s successful ratings in 2017 is its local productions, which we have been commissioning for the last five years. Over 200,000 new viewers tuned to CI for Season 1 of Killer Women which is testament to the fact that important emotional, local stories need to be told.”
Season 2 will premiere on March 28th on Crime+Investigation in Poland. The channel is now available in over 100 territories, reaching over 60 million households.
