Daytime EMMY Award-winning TV Host, Journalist and Author Tamron Hall will host a new, weekly true-crime series on Court TV, the popular multi-platform network devoted to live, gavel-to-gavel coverage, in-depth legal reporting, and expert analysis of the nation’s most important and compelling trials.
“Someone They Knew…With Tamron Hall” will be seen Sundays at 9 p.m. ET starting Jan. 9, 2022. Each episode will follow the path from victim to verdict and will explore how when it comes to murder, it is rare for there to be no prior connection between the killer and the deceased. “Someone They Knew…With Tamron Hall” will dissect all the elements, starting from when the two first crossed paths to the moment a jury must decide what really happened.
No voice-overs, no reporters, and no correspondents, the “Someone They Knew…With Tamron Hall” stories are told from the point of view of the people impacted by the case, including the lawyers, jurors, members of law enforcement and the victim’s family and friends. Utilizing new interviews, archival footage and re-creations of the crime, the goal of each episode is an unbiased 360-degree balanced story.
“We’re thrilled to have Tamron host ‘Someone They Knew,'” says David Hudson, Head of Original Programming at Scripps. “With her many years of experience in journalism, TV hosting, and personal connection to unsolved cases, we know she will hook the audience in with her captivating storytelling during each episode.”
“When the idea of a series focused on crimes committed by intimate partners was presented to me, I felt a deep connection to these victims,” says Tamron. “I have always been pulled into the ‘why’ – why crimes like this happen – and the heartbreaking impact they have on family and friends. Court TV represents an additional, trusted partner to support the important work that I do.”
Most recently Tamron released her first crime novel As The Wicked Watch – the first in a thrilling new series that follows a reporter as she unravels the disturbing mystery around the deaths of two Black girls; the work of a serial killer terrorizing Chicago.
