FEATURING NARRATION BY ACTOR DENNIS HAYSBERT, "AMERICAN JUSTICE" RETURNS TO EXPLORE SIGNIFICANT CRIMINAL CASES THROUGH THE PRISM OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

NEW YORK, NY -August 5, 2021 - A&E Network's iconic and acclaimed original true crime classic series "Cold Case Files(R)" and "American Justice(R)" return this summer exploring shocking stories of cold cases and gripping court room trials. Both produced by Category 6 Media(TM) group, "Cold Case Files" premieres Friday, August 20 at 9pm ET/PT followed by "American Justice" at 10pm ET/PT.

"Both 'Cold Case Files' and 'American Justice' were beloved when they first premiered, and with more stories to tell, these new iterations continue their legacy of riveting and powerful storytelling at its finest."

There are over 100,000 cold cases in America, and only about 1% are ever solved. With recent advancements in technology and the methods used to solve these cases, as well as the unwavering dedication of victims' families, law enforcement and the public, "Cold Case Files" explores the cases the defied the odds. Narrated by the original host and producer of "Cold Case Files," celebrated veteran journalist and newsman Bill Kurtis, each one-hour episode of the Emmy-nominated series examines the twists and turns of one murder case that remained unsolved for years, and the critical element that heated it up, leading to the evidence that finally solved it. Featuring interviews with family members, friends, detectives, and others close to the cases, the refreshed classic series examines all facets of the crime and shines a light on a range of voices and victims.

Diving even deeper, "Cold Case Files: The Podcast," hosted by Brooke Gittings ("Convicted" and "Actual Innocence"), has returned for an all-new season to take listeners through the investigative process of some of the most difficult-to-solve murders featured on past seasons of "Cold Case Files."

Narrated by actor Dennis Haysbert ("24," "The Unit,") the newly reimagined and iconic "American Justice" looks at recent criminal cases in the United States through the prism of the criminal justice system, and from the first-hand perspectives of the prosecutors, defense attorneys, investigators, victims and perpetrators involved. The series dives into significant crimes that were adjudicated within the last few years, from trials that made national headlines to gripping lesser-known cases, ensuring that the issues being explored are relevant. Each story reveals how our justice system works, and, sometimes, how it doesn't. One of the original true crime documentary series, "American Justice" originally aired for 13 years on A&E.
