The new series premieres with the episode “Melissa Friedrich.” In the episode, a sweet and charming Canadian woman finds love on the internet and leaves an international trail of lovers falling victim to mysterious illnesses in her wake.
Throughout the season, episodes unveil unique stories of women who turn society’s assumptions about the “fairer sex” upside down, spinning webs of deceit to capture their unsuspecting victims. Whether it’s a career con artist, serial divorcee or homemaker leading a secret double life, the women sometimes take control in the most violent way imaginable. They don’t stop until investigators finally bring them to justice.
“Black Widow Murders” is produced by Catalina Content and Lark Productions. Jeff Collins and Deborah Allen serve as Executive Producers and Madeline Griffey as Co-Executive Producer for Catalina Content, and Erin Haskett as Executive Producer for Lark Productions.
