Discovery to launch ‘New Detectives’ series

After the success of the innovative and groundbreaking programme, Medical Detective, Discovery Channel plans to launch a new series titled ‘New Detectives.’ The series will be aired every Friday from 10 pm to 11 pm.

New Detectives is all about group of specialised detectives who work to put together the pieces of the crime scene puzzle, and paint a vivid picture that leads to the criminal. The series shows that even the most clever and cunning murderer can be tracked down with forensic science, where even the smallest amount of evidence can result in indictment.

Medical Detectives has helped the rural police in India to enhance their investigative skills by involving pathologists and lab technicians to guide them through real-life investigations, thus providing them with a first hand look at the science behind crime solving.

Commenting on the viewing of the Discovery Channel programme ‘Medical Detective’ by the police force, Deepak Shourie, Managing Director, Discovery Communications India, said that keeping in mind the success of Medical Detectives, from July the channel will be introducing a new series titled ‘New Detectives’.

‘New Detectives’ journeys into the dark recesses of the minds of murderers and the calculated madness of serial killers and emerges to bring these criminals to justice.

Discovery Channel India, which was launched in 1995, is a 24-hour pay channel, providing real-life entertainment. Currently reaching over 21 million homes throughout India, the network offers a 24-hour parallel Hindi audio feed in addition to an English audio feed.
