Primetime is crime time at net

Victims, perps face off on show

BUENOS AIRES — A newsmagazine is investigating Argentina’s most prominent crimes — with a twist.

“Asuntos pendientes” (Pending Affairs), which bowed Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. on second-ranked Artear-Canal 13 (Grupo Clarin), brings together the accused and the victim — or close relatives — to tell their sides of the ordeal, supported by documentary footage. They then meet face to face without a moderator, often for the first time since the crime.

The first episode of the hourlong program involved the murder of a journalist by a wealthy businessman who later committed suicide while on the run from the law. The sisters of both men appeared on the show.

Cuatro Cabezas, an independent production company run by Diego Guebel and Mario Pergolini, is producing “Pending Affairs” based on an idea from Agulla & Baccetti, a local ad agency part-owned by Lowe & Partners Worldwide.
