Net signs writers to talk about real 'Crime' experiences

Court TV has signed five bestselling mystery novelists to appear on camera to talk about the most interesting real-life cases they’ve ever come across.

Called “America’s Crime Writers: Murder They Wrote,” the reality show will interview people involved in the cases and draw on commentary from the authors.

The novelists on board are Michael Connelly, James Ellroy, Faye Kellerman, Jonathan Kellerman and Lisa Scottoline.

Court TV has also unveiled plans to open a news bureau in Washington, D.C., to facilitate coverage of national judicial affairs.

Office will be located on Capitol Hill and designed for live studio reports to be broadcast on “Headlines,” the net’s hourly news update, as well as other daytime slots.

A full-time correspondent and production staff will be established, with Fred Graham overseeing the bureau’s editorial board. Graham will also file occasional stories.

Upcoming news the network intends to cover includes the penalty phase trial of 9/11 terror suspect Zacarias Moussaoui and the perjury case of former vice presidential aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.
