#TextMeWhenYouGetHome became a viral, worldwide movement following the 2021 death of Sarah Everard in the UK. The hashtag sparked global awareness, anger and a conversation around the vulnerability and lack of safety women feel while in public alone. In this gripping, true-crime docuseries, each episode follows the case of an innocent woman who has been abducted, harmed or even murdered by someone on what was an otherwise average day in her life. These stories are told through emotional interviews; accompanied by stylistic recreations, actual texts, phone records and other digital breadcrumbs that authorities used to solve the case. Unfolding as a whodunnit, all suspects are explored until the actual perpetrator is caught. In several episodes, survivors of these harrowing sagas will be revealed to tell their story, in their own words.
#TextMeWhenYouGetHome is produced by AMS Pictures with Andy Streitfeld serving as Executive Producer, Brad Osborne as Creative Director and Kim Clemons as Showrunner. Amy Winter and Nicole Vogel executive produce for Lifetime.
SLEEPING WITH A KILLER
Premieres June 6th at 10/9c
Sleeping with a Killer examines real-life cases where jealousy pushes individuals to do the unthinkable. The docuseries focuses on ordinary people who have tragic endings at the hands of husbands, wives, former friends, and lovers. The 26-episode UK series (formerly known as Green Eyed Killers) is a dramatic look at the events that led up to these life-changing moments and the setbacks that often occur in the cases until final justice can be served.
Sleeping with a Killer is produced by Peninsula Television and distributed by Orange Smarty for Lifetime with David Harvey, Dan Korn and Di Carter serving as executive producers.
PHROGGING: HIDER IN MY HOUSE
This stranger-than-fiction true crime thriller explores the phenomenon of phrogging – people secretly living inside someone else’s home. From the man in the attic to the creeper in the crawl space, each episode features two first-hand accounts of survivors sharing the most skin crawling, twisted and truly terrifying stories imaginable. Along with interviews and key archive materials, cinematic recreations bring the clues and confrontations to life. This series proves that yes, there may actually be monsters under the bed.
Phrogging: Hider in My House is produced by Objective Media Group America, an All3Media America company. Executive producers for Objective Media Group America are Jessica Everleth, Layla Smith and Jilly Pearce with Saterah Moore overseeing the series as SVP of Current. Amy Winter, Brie Miranda Bryant, and Nicole Vogel executive produce for Lifetime. Ten episodes have been ordered.
MEET, MARRY, MURDER
What happens when the person you commit to spending the rest of your life with, winds up taking it instead? Meet, Marry, Murder reveals the gripping true stories of marriages gone terribly wrong, where an unsuspecting partner dies at the hands of their insidious spouse. Whether driven by rage, jealousy or greed, these spouses commit the most deplorable and common of crimes. The series takes a deep dive into several cases and uncovers a world of scenarios that end in murder, from a husband who broadcasts his intent to kill his wife on YouTube to a woman driven to commit murder for a life insurance payout and a successful Louisiana attorney slain by the man she met after a car crash brought them together.
Meet, Marry, Murder is produced by First Look TV with Will Hanrahan serving as executive producer. Amy Winter, Brie Miranda Bryant, Shura Davison and Nicole Vogel executive produce for Lifetime.
