DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S TRUE CRIME SERIES ‘KILLING FIELDS’ HAS RETURNED FOR A SECOND SEASON ON TUESDAYS AT 10 PM ET/PT WITH NEW LEADS, AND NEW CASES…
The Discovery Channel’s True Crime Series “Killing Fields” returned Tuesday, January 3rd for its 2nd Season and it did not disappoint. If you didn’t catch the 1st Season (I was hooked from the first episode) you definitely should watch the 2nd Season! “Killing Fields” is uniquely Discovery with an exploratory feel that will take you inside real murder investigations in one of the most difficult places in the world to solve a murder, the Louisiana swamplands. I’ve learned that the Louisiana swamplands are a perfect dumping ground for bodies – tune in and find out why. The law enforcement team that Discovery follows is armed with determination, experience, and the latest in forensic technology. They are focused on solving these horrific crimes and bringing closure to the murder cases and the victim’s families. Watching them try to accomplish this in real time can be intense at times.
If you haven’t watched the series before here’s the synopsis: The sheriff’s department investigate real crimes in the small community of Iberville Parish, Louisiana, located just 15 miles from the state capitol, Baton Rouge. This season picks up from last season as detectives Rodie Sanchez and Aubrey St. Angelo and their team continue to investigate the infamous 1997 homicide of former Louisiana State University student Eugenie Boisfontaine. Rodie is more determined than ever to close the case, which has haunted him for nearly two decades. Last season I interviewed forensics specialist Lori Morgan about her life as a wife and mother of three teenagers in addition to her career in forensics (and now a TV Star) and found her own story to be inspiring. This is a mom who followed her career dream and has achieved success in her field. The affectionate bantering and camaraderie between Rodie and Aubrey is entertaining to watch as well.
KILLING FIELDS is co-executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Tom Fontana (“St. Elsewhere,” “Homicide: Life On The Street,” “Oz” and “The Philanthropist”) and Academy Award-winning film director Barry Levinson (“Rain Man,” “Diner,” “Bugsy,” “Wag the Dog” and “Good Morning, Vietnam”).
