Star World launches 'Crime At Ten' band

MUMBAI: English GEC Star World has created a block called ‘Crime At Ten‘ that will kick off on 5 March.

With the crime related shows airing every weekday at 10 pm, the broadcaster has taken a step towards imbibing the American style of showcasing programmes in a checkered format.

The property will showcase the latest seasons of crime shows. These include ‘Dexter‘, ‘Castle‘ and ‘Criminal Minds‘ that will air everyday weekday at 10 pm along with new shows ‘Person Of Interest‘ and ‘Unforgettable‘.

Star India GM, senior VP, English Channels Saurabh Yagnik said, "Star World is constantly designing ways to engage viewers either by bringing the latest Hollywood shows to India or launching innovative properties like Crime At Ten. With this property, we are mirroring the American way of showcasing programmes in a checkered format. Our research shows that Indian viewers have a high tendency to consume crime content and we are hence launching five crime shows on our 10 pm slot."

Coming up first on‘Crime At Ten‘ is the sixth season of ‘Dexter‘. Michael C. Hall continues his role as Dexter the serial killer as he explores beyond his surroundings and enters new arenas. But unfortunately whenever a serial killer enters new arenas, they always find someone that‘s needs to be killed.

On 6 March a new crime show, ‘Person Of Interest‘, kicks off. The series revolves around Mr. Flinch who creates a computer programme that can see the future, providing information about individuals that could be in danger. His first target is to save the life of Diane Hanson, an Assistant District Attorney currently working on a major prosecution with the help of his newly employed colleague John Reese.

The show not just boasts of nuanced writing and characteriaation but also engages viewers with a post 9/11 sense of paranoia.

Crime duo- Richard Castle and Kate Becket take centrestage on Wednesday with the fourth season of ‘Castle‘. Following ‘Castle‘ comes a new crime show ‘Unforgettable‘. The show follows the story of Former Syracuse, New York police detective Carrie Wells who has hyperthymesia, a rare medical condition that gives her the ability to visually remember everything. A series of events helps her to find out the one thing she has been unable to remember i.e. what happened the day her sister was murdered.

On ‘Crime At Ten‘ is also the latest season of ‘Criminal Minds‘. The show revolves around the Behavioral Analysis Unit who analyses the country‘s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. This season takes off from Season 6 where the BAU team is at crossroads when they are questioned by a Senate Committee for their retaliatory actions to get revenge on Doyle.
