Slice and Investigation Discovery acquire Handsome Devils

The docu-drama crime series is the first commission for Saloon Media and UK partner BriteSpark Films.

Saloon Media and UK partner BriteSpark Films have received a commission from Slice and Investigation Discovery in the U.S. for a docu-drama about notorious American lady-killers.

Handsome Devils, developed by BriteSpark Films and coproduced with Saloon Media, comprises 10 episodes and crimes of passion as killers charm, lure and then entrap women before conning them out of everything they own or killing them in cold blood.

The project, mixing dramatization and first-person testimony, marks the first commission for both companies.

The series is set to air in 2014.

BriteSpark Films is a joint venture recently launched with UK-based Argonon by former Cineflix head of documentaries Nick Godwin.

Saloon Media was also recently launched by former Entertainment One factual TV executive Michael Kot.
