Really will return to Nurses Who Kill, while Swipe Right For Murder is a new addition to the channel.
“Swipe Right For Murder is an extraordinary series which reveals the true dangers of the online dating world we all have access to.” – Emma Sparks, acquisitions and co-production manager, UKTV
In the eight part series Swipe Right For Murder each hour long episode reveals how online love matches can turn sinister. Serious crimes linked to apps from Plenty Of Fish to match.com have increased by over ten times in the last year, with a staggering 10% of all known sex offenders using online dating apps as a private hunting ground.
In cases such as these, there’s not a lot the police can do in a world where we invite strangers into our lives. With exclusive access to the victims’ families and the police who worked to bring the offenders to justice, this series shines a frightening light on the world of social media murders.
The UKTV channel will also screen a second series of Nurses Who Kill, with ten further hour long episodes bringing together top medical, criminal and psychological experts to analyse the motives of the nurses who kill.
Featuring never-before-seen evidence, Nurses Who Kill examines why they do it, how they get away with it and how hard it can be to prove their guilt, revealing the shocking cynicism and brutality behind their caring persona.
“Both Swipe Right For Murder and Nurses who Kill will give Really’s viewers an exclusive and fascinating insight into the crimes that have been committed and the people behind them.”- Emma Sparks, acquisitions and co-production manager, UKTV
Swipe Right for Murder is a working title, and may see the programme renamed before it goes to air. Both series are slated to transmit on Really in 2018.
