Oxygen, the home of high quality, true crime programming, exposes the lengths disgruntled best friends, furious family members, jilted lovers, forlorn spouses and grifting strangers will go to for wealth in a new series from “Law & Order” Executive Producer Dick Wolf, Wolf Entertainment’s Tom Thayer and Alfred Street Industries’ Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz. “Blood & Money” premieres on Oxygen Saturday, March 11 at 9:00 PM ET/PT following a new episode of “Cold Justice.”
Each installment of the 10-episode series goes in depth into crimes motivated by money and greed. Drawing inspiration from Executive Producer Dick Wolf’s hit series “Law & Order,” the program features riveting first-hand accounts from law enforcement and prosecutors who worked tirelessly to solve and try the cases, as well as insight from the victims’ loved ones and friends.

The series opens with the story of Mafia royalty, writer Susan Berman, who made her living off her famous ties to the Las Vegas mob. Her father amassed a fortune working in the mob in the mid-20th century, but the money slowly dwindled when Susan inherited it after his death. Susan is found dead from a gunshot to the back of her head in her home in tony Benedict Canyon, a stone’s throw from Beverly Hills. The suspect list seems endless until a handwritten note, a documentary, and a confession lead law enforcement straight to her longtime close friend, multimillionaire Robert Durst. The scion of a New York real estate empire had already been tried and acquitted of one murder charge and suspected in murder of his wife decades earlier.
In the episode, Joseph Becerra, Investigator (retired) from the New York State Police; LAPD Detective Paul Coulter (retired Supervisor of Detectives) and Los Angeles County District Attorney John Lewin detail the convergence of evidence that ultimately led Durst to justice.
Other cases covered this season include those desperate to live the good life, silence a voice raising alarms or struggling to keep themselves out of arms’ reach of the law. The murders of Jose and Kitty Menendez in Beverly Hills, affluent socialite Irene Silverman, Las Vegas casino tycoon Ted Binion, and Sheila Bellush, the ex-wife of a successful medical device company CEO are among the cases that get a fresh perspective from the executive producer synonymous with captivating crime programming.
“Blood & Money,” a co-production of CNBC and Oxygen True Crime, is produced by Wolf Entertainment, Universal Television Alternative Studio and Alfred Street Industries with Dick Wolf, Tom Thayer, Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Nan Strait, Dan Volpe and Josh Bingham serving as executive producers.
