CBS All Access has ordered a non-linear true-crime drama Interrogation, which could eventually be a contender for 10 All Access.
Co-created by Swedish writer-producer Anders Weidemann (30 Degrees In February) and John Mankiewicz (House of Cards, Bosch), Interrogation is based on a true story spanning more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother (the actual case has not been disclosed).
Each episode is structured around an interrogation taken directly from the real police case files, with the goal of turning the viewer into a detective. Based on the series’ unusual structure, the first nine episodes of the series will be available to watch in any order, with a season finale to be released at a later date.
“This non-linear approach to storytelling is closer to how real detectives work, picking their own path through the evidence in a search for the truth,” said Weidemann.
“Interrogation pushes the boundaries of what a television series can be with its truly unique format,” said Julie McNamara, EVP, Original Content, CBS All Access. “It’s also a series that could only be executed with the technical capabilities of a streaming service, and we look forward to bringing its innovative approach to our CBS All Access subscribers.”
Interrogation joins upcoming CBS All Access original series that includes The Twilight Zone reboot, Marc Cherry’s Why Women Kill, the animated Star Trek: Lower Decks and a new untitled Star Trek live-action series featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard.
With no platforms yet announced, all would be likely contenders for 10 All Access which so far has confirmed One Dollar, Strange Angel, Tell Me A Story as originals. It is expected to launch next month, but pricing has not been confirmed.
