Focus Television to showcase world’s prolific serial killers in new show

NEW DELHI: Even as most Hindi news channels and general entertainment channels show crime shows, which are part reality and part fiction, news channel Focus Television is all set to launch a new show that will showcase the world’s most prolific serial killers.

Conceived and directed by Franklin Nigam, the series titled Killer, will be screened from 6 June at 10 pm and will be telecast every Saturday.

In the series, each episode is based on a real case, which is well researched. The series aims to bring out details of crimes that shook the world. The first episode is on an American serial killer Ted Bundy whose charming personality helped him kill more than 100 women.

The show experiments with three anchors coming together in the same frame. Each anchor plays a character on the show, which will highlight the highpoints of those cases and decode the crime for audiences.

The three anchors are: Shishir Sharma, Amit Pachori and Shilpa Gandhi. While Sharma has starred in films like Mary Kom, in Killer he will be seen playing the character of a detective. Pachori, on the other hand, is a seasoned actor and will play an advocate. Gandhi, who is a Marathi film actress, will be playing a psychiatrist in the series.

Nigam, who had earlier worked in Lok Sabha TV, was also a part of the team, which produced the Pradhanmantri series on ABP.
