- Court TV has announced their first serialized podcast series 'Murder and the Menendez Brothers: A Court TV Mystery.'
Court TV is launching its first serialized podcast series Murder and the Menendez Brothers: A Court TV Mystery.
Centered around the cold-blooded murder of Jose and Kitty Menendez by their sons Erik and Lyle, Murder and the Menendez Brothers: A Court TV Mystery will take an in-depth look at the stunning story that has captivated people for thirty years. From the two hung juries and mistrials to the surprise witness that ultimately led to the brothers’ undoing, each episode tracks the twists and turns that Americans saw play out across the nation in real-time.
The series will be hosted by Court TV lead anchor Vinnie Politan with new episodes available every Tuesday for six weeks starting June 23. Future series subjects will be announced at a different time. The podcast is in association with production company Neon Hum Media.
“The Menendez case was one of the original Court TV’s most-watched trials and helped put the network into the mainstream; it was a natural choice to launch our new serialized podcast series,” commented Scott Tufts, Court TV Senior Vice President.
“This was a sensationalist crime in every sense of the word,” says Politan, who also hosts Court TV’s weekly podcast. “What these brothers stood accused of and ultimately were convicted for, was a shock to the system for many people. From the little things that help the brothers initially avoid suspicion, to how they’ve become well-known figures – for better or worse – we’ll go through it all, including what the results may have been like if they faced a jury of their peers today.”
