'People Will Feel A Range Of Emotions': Faith Jenkins Discusses Her New Series About Killer Relationships
Faith Jenkins, the host of the new Oxygen series "Killer Relationship With Faith Jenkins," previews cases featured in the upcoming season, including a COVID-19 cover-up.
Some love stories are beautiful and inspiring. But some relationships end in horror and tragedy.
In fact, "On average, one in five murder victims are killed by an intimate partner in the United States," Oxygen digital correspondent Stephanie Gomulka says in the video, above. These stories are explored in Oxygen's series "Killer Relationship With Faith Jenkins," streaming on Oxygen.
The host of the show is someone familiar with both the law and relationships: former Wall Street litigator, prosecutor, and "Divorce Court" presiding judge Faith Jenkins.
"People will feel a range of emotions watching this show. They'll be invested in who the victims are and their lives and they'll feel the pain of their families," Jenkins says in the video, above.
The series places an emphasis on the victims and the way investigators go above and beyond to get the answers the families deserve.
"When you think about someone's life being tragically and unfairly taken, there's no real justice. You can't get this person back. But what you do see on this show is the extent law enforcement goes to to solve these cases and bring some type of closure to the families and accountability to the perpetrators who committed this heinous acts," she said.
When asked which cases featured in the upcoming season have stuck with her, Jenkins points to two very different stories — one involving a COVID cover-up and one involving a secret someone was desperate to keep hidden.
"Jennifer Blagg really stayed with me. From the outside looking in, they were the perfect couple. Michael Blagg had a deep, dark secret and in the end ... he decided to kill someone he thought could expose him. ... I also think about Gretchen Anthony. She was murdered right at the start of the COVID pandemic and it gave her husband the opportunity to have the perfect cover-up," Jenkins explains.
