Oxygen’s “Murder for Hire” is back for a new season, premiering on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 6 p.m. ET/PT.
From Executive Producer Dick Wolf and Shed Media, “Murder for Hire” takes a shocking look into the dark world of contract killings, showcasing some of the most fascinating murder for hire cases ever caught on tape, including devious spouses and jealous relatives, who attempt to destroy the lives of the people closest to them.
In an alarming trend, investigators are seeing a sharp increase in hired hits across the country. The show explores in rare, never-before-seen footage, how a seemingly good relationship can go wrong, and the emotions surrounding the reveal, when an intended victim discovers a hit has been taken out on their life.
In the premiere episode, viewers are taken through the sting operation and trials of Dalia Dippolito, a 26-year-old escort, who became an infamous femme fatale and media sensation when she was charged with solicitation to commit the murder of her husband, Mike.
“Murder for Hire” is produced by Wolf Entertainment, Shed Media (a division of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television) and Green Lakes Production, with Dick Wolf, Tom Thayer, Pam Healey, Dan Peirson and Adam Kassen serving as executive producers.
