cold justice

TNT has renewed its real-life crime series “Cold Justice” for a third season, citing a growth in viewership on Friday nights.

The renewal includes ten episodes for the third season, slated for early 2015.

“Cold Justice” follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investigator Yolanda McClary as they travel around the country to look into long unsolved murder cases. Since the show’s premiere Siegler and McClary have assisted local law enforcement in securing 15 arrests, eight indictments, four confessions, two guilty pleas and one 22-year prison sentence.

“I’m most passionate about the idea that one day, we can knock on the door of a victim’s family and tell them that the case has been reopened, and with all the resources thrown at it, we’ve been able to solve it,” said Siegler in a statement. “To see that look in their eyes, to see how they feel about that, is a wonderful satisfaction.”

“Cold Justice” is produced for TNT by Wolf Reality and Magical Elves with Dick Wolf (“Law & Order”), Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz (“Top Chef”), and Tom Thayer (“Hitchcock”) as executive producers.
