Homicide City

TX Time: 21h40
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series, Docu-Drama

Homicide City

Life in the big city means death lurks around every corner: Homicide City takes a deep dive into the stories of unforgettable murders from major American cities.

From the mansions and manicured lawns of wealthy suburbs, to the darkest, most dangerous neighbourhoods, each episode centres around a distinct part of the city.

Told through the eyes of veteran homicide detectives, local beat reporters and the victim's families who have lost so much, these are the cases they will never forget.

By the turn of the 21st century, Philadelphia detectives were investigating roughly 400 homicide cases in any given year.

Thankfully, today, that statistic is lower but the impact of the real stories behind the numbers still lingers - through the pain endured by victims' loved ones, the community impact, and the memories that keep detectives up at night.

Homicide City dedicates its first season to crimes that shook Philadelphia to its core.

The series explores cases from a darker time that had police detectives banding together across the metropolitan landscape in a sequence of manhunts.

From the mansions and manicured lawns of the wealthy Mainline suburbs to the inner-city Badlands, each episode is told through the eyes of veteran homicide detectives, local beat reporters and the victims' families who lost so much.

In each episode of Homicide City, Philadelphia's finest come out of retirement to tell the inside story about a headline-making case they'll "never forget."

Fortune and love do little to protect the fate of Philadelphia's victims as stories include the attack on Lockheed Corporation's wealthy CEO, Courtlandt S. Gross; the death of John Thurberg months before his wedding; and the killing of an expectant mother, Natise Johnson.

Nonetheless, you will find a sense of justice in the commentary provided by former Montgomery County Chief Oscar Vance; retired Philadelphia Police Sergeant William Britt; Philadelphia Inquirer investigative journalist Larry Lewis; and other local experts.

In the series premiere, "Society Hill Slaying": After jewelers Patty and Richard Zimmerman are found executed in their Society Hill town home in Philadelphia, police suspect a robbery gone wrong, then they discover that nothing has been taken.

Homeland 1-8

Homeland is a psychological thriller series which centres on Carrie Mathison, a CIA officer and Nicholas Brody, a US Marine, after Mathison has come to believe that Brody, who was held captive by Al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was turned by the enemy and now threatens the United States.

Who's the hero – who's the threat?

When MIA Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody returns home to a hero's welcome after eight years in enemy confinement, brilliant but volatile CIA agent Carrie Mathison isn't buying his story.

She believes that Brody has been turned and is now working for Al-Qaeda.

What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse with nothing short of American national security at stake.

Maverick CIA agent Mathison doesn't like playing by the rules.

Haunted by her failure to anticipate the 9/11 attacks, she is determined to ward off further terrorism against US targets, almost at any cost.

She is already skating on thin ice within the CIA after a disastrous attempt to get information from a condemned Iraqi source sparks a diplomatic crisis.

But Carrie was able to get a small piece of unsettling secret intelligence from her source before he died, and she is convinced it has alarming significance to the return of MIA Sgt. Nicholas Brody.

The crucial question is, is Carrie's conviction based on fact or is it the product of a delusional obsession?

Mathison's unorthodox investigation of threats to US security in Iraq leads to a serious diplomatic incident, and Carrie is stripped of her field status and assigned to a desk job.

But along the way she learns from her sources that an American Prisoner of War has been turned.

When Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody, Missing in Action for eight years and presumed dead, is suddenly recovered in Afghanistan, the timing is too suspicious for Carrie to ignore.

She must break protocol in order to prove her theory that Brody now poses a major threat to his own country.

Claire Danes, Damian Lewis, Morena Baccarin, David Harewood, Diego Klattenhoff, Jackson Pace, Morgan Saylor and Mandy Patinkin star.
