Today E.W Scripps Company announced that they will rebrand the free OTA TV network Escape to Court TV Mystery on Monday September 30th 2019. This new network will work with Court TV and offer top-rated crime series like The First 48, Forensic Files, American Greed, FBI Files, Crime Watch Daily, Unsolved Mysteries and more.
“Court TV Mystery will continue to focus on true-crime programming but will now be powered by one of the most recognizable brands in television history,” said Jonathan Katz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Katz Networks. “While increasing consumer recognition, aligning the two networks also creates increased marketing and co-promotional strength and the ability to naturally share content. We have begun producing true-crime docuseries and documentaries for Court TV, drawing from the nearly 100,000 hours of footage in the original network library. This compelling content will premiere on Court TV then have a home on Court TV Mystery, giving the millions of consumers who are hungry for the real-life drama of true-crime programming more opportunities to watch and enjoy it.”
Escape is currently available in 103.5 million homes, or 94% of the U.S. Now as Court TV Mystery, the true crime network will continue to focus on it’s audience of women aged 25-54.
