10-EPISODE SEASON FROM BLUMHOUSE TELEVISION AND AMPLE PREMIERES MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27 AT 9PM ET/PT

 
New York, NY – January 19, 2017 – A&E Network is bringing back the genre-defining, Emmy-nominated true crime series, “Cold Case Files,” beginning Monday, February 27 at 9PM ET/PT. 

 
There are 120,000 cold cases in America, and only 1% will ever be solved. The return of “Cold Case Files” will explore compelling new cases that have gone cold for years and chronicle the journeys of the detectives who reopened them. The detectives relive the events of the crimes, reveal new twists and startling revelations for full viewer immersion into these tragic cases, relying on breakthroughs in forensic technology and the influence of social media to help crack these cases – bringing long-awaited closure to the victim’s families and friends. From the Emmy and Peabody award winning studio Blumhouse Television (“The Jinx”) and independent production studio, AMPLE, “Cold Case Files” is narrated by award-winning actor and humanitarian Danny Glover and will air over 10 one-hour episodes on A&E.

 
“‘Cold Case Files’ remains one of A&E’s most beloved and successful series of all time,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President & Head of Programming for A&E.  “The new creative team has infused the franchise with a rejuvenated approach to storytelling at a time when true crime investigation is capturing the nation’s attention more than ever.”

 
Each episode of the new “Cold Case Files” will feature a single case that has been left unsolved for years, brought to life through cinematic dramatizations and gripping first-person storytelling from the detectives and loved ones who lived through the harrowing experiences. The series will highlight different approaches to solving cold cases that are more wide-ranging than ever before, enlisting crowd-solving and social media, alongside new advancements in technology to lead to further breakthroughs in each documented case.

Spanning 125 episodes, “Cold Case Files” originally premiered on A&E in 1998 and ran for nearly 10 years. It quickly became the network’s highest rated series, while also being nominated for two Emmys for Outstanding Nonfiction Series.

 
“Cold Case Files” is produced for A&E Network by AMPLE and Blumhouse Television (“Whiplash,” “The Jinx” “The Normal Heart”). Executive producers for AMPLE are Ari Mark and Phil Lott. Executive producers for Blumhouse Television are Jason Blum, Marci Wiseman, Jeremy Gold and Jessica Rhoades.
