Deadly Rich (CNBC) – Premieres 9th July
A crime docu-series that looks into the murders of victims that would be classified as part of the 1%. In each episode it looks into a different case, and shows how the murder was solved and what motivated it.
The programme begins with going over how the person was found, and how they were killed. Before going on to give the back story of the deceased, where the show recounts their upbringing and adult life.
After showing the persons background, the episode then looks into how the case was solved. Where along with interviews with police and family members, it tells how the suspects were found. Then with showing footage of the interrogations, reveals how the murder was solved and the motivations behind the killer.
For a crime docu-series, it is more reminiscent to programmes like It Takes A Killer. Where it follows a tried and tested format, but this doesn’t offer anything new that would make it stand out from similar shows. And with it having a 45 minute runtime, it does begin to feel drawn out to the point any interest does being to wane.
