Court TV’s Forensic Files Heads to U.K.

Publish date:

Court TV’s signature series, Forensic Files, will go across the pond to celebrate its 200th episode later this month.

“Making the Collar” will tell the story of the disappearance of a young girl in Leeds, England. The installment will premiere Aug. 27 at 9 p.m. as part of the network’s “Forensics Week” stunt.

From Aug. 23-27, Court TV will air new episodes of the series in that time slot. On Aug. 29, the network will serve up installments from 8 p.m.-11 p.m., including an encore of the 200th episode at 10 p.m.

“People are fascinated by forensics, as shown by the number of crime-scene-related dramas on the air today, but there is nothing more captivating than a true story, which is why we believe Forensic Files has been such a success. Airing the 200th episode is a special treat for viewers and a real celebration for the network,” Court TV president and chief operating officer Art Bell said in a prepared statement.
