For those who have access to the REELZ channel, there is a new docu-series hosted by Deborah Norville dealing with certain high-profile cases where the defendant was sentenced to die for his (or her) crimes and ultimately executed.

Saturday (June 29, 2019) will have all six episodes of the series’ first season, starting at 1:00 pm EST.  (A second season has been green-lighted.)

Executed With Deborah Norville

“Executed with Deborah Norville” describes itself as:

Host Deborah Norville peels back the cover on some of the most ghastly real life crime sprees and criminals in modern history where capital punishment was the final answer. Norville shows viewers the untold stories behind the headline grabbing events and examines the lasting impact and aftermath of the crimes via movies, TV shows and pop culture. In hour-long episodes Norville breaks down the terrifying real stories of D.C. Sniper John Allen Muhammad, Gary Gilmore, Clarence Ray Allen, Aileen Wuornos, Karla Faye Tucker and Stanley “Tookie” Williams. In addition to interviews with those intimately connected to the story viewers will also see dramatic recreations, raw news footage and police interrogations.

For those interested in the death penalty, check out these episodes.  Are they fair?  Are they slanted?  Given the concerns for a trial by media in any death penalty case, do these kinds of shows have the propensity to influence a jury?
