Two of the series will premiere back-to-back on Feb. 17-18: “Sins and Secrets,” a six-episode skein that depicts how crime affects the community in which it occurs, and “The Injustice Files,” a three-parter focused on the Civil Rights Era Cold Case Initiative, which seeks justice for crimes of that time period. Keith Beauchamp (“The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till”) is the filmmaker behind “The Injustice Files.”

Stephen Land and Deborah Dawkins of Jupiter Entertainment exec produce “Sins,” while Susan Zirinsky of CBS Eye Too Prods. is shepherding “Injustice Files.”

Next comes “Cuff Me If You Can,” which premieres March 1. Its six episodes focus on criminals who try to stay on the run. DavidFrank exec produces for Indigo Films Entertainment.

On March 9, ID bows “Nothing Personal,” a six-episode series about hitmen hosted by Steve Schirripa (“The Sopranos”), who exec produces with Simon Lloyd for Cineflix.

The fifth series is “FBI: Criminal Pursuit.” Premiering the first of eight episodes on March 11, it depicts the attempt to solve this century’s most mystifying cases, from arson to terror, and features high-tech investigative techniques. Mike Sinclair exec produces for M2 Pictures.

ID also said that it will air the longform 2006 docu “Cocaine Cowboys,” from director-producer Billy Corben, on Feb. 26. “Cowboys” paints a portrait of drug smuggling and murder in Miami.
