STREAMING platform hayu (pronounced like “hey you”) is adding 40 new true crime series to its current reality slate with programs ranging from “unthinkable mysteries that would send shivers down your spine, to the entertaining lives of your favorite reality stars,” according to a press release.
Among the shows added to the platform are: Snapped, a series which first aired in 2004 and which is focused on telling the “fascinating cases of women accused of murder, usually of their partners, featuring interviews with friends and family members of the accused and victims, law-enforcement officials, attorneys and other people with first-hand knowledge of the cases,” and Ice Cold Blood, a show hosted by American rapper and Grammy Award winner Ice-T where he tells true stories involving sex, money, and obsession.
Also on hayu is The Kim Kardashian-West Justice Project, a 2020 documentary following Ms. Kardashian-West on her personal mission to address the criminal reform crisis and her efforts to free incarcerated Americans whom she believes have been wronged by the justice system.
Those who prefer medical mysteries can binge on the second season of License to Kill, a show that investigates cases involving murderous doctors and nurses with family members of victims weighing in on the loss of their loved ones. The show is hosted by Dr. Terry Dubrow, known for being the host of the plastic-surgery-gone-wrong series, Botched.
Then there is the documentary about the high-profile murder of celebrated fashion designer Gianni Versace, Killing Versace: The Hunt for a Serial Killer. The documentary features interviews with fashion fans, witnesses, and experts trying to get into the mind of Mr. Versace’s killer, Andrew Cunanan.
Hayu is available for download on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Subscription fees range from P49 for a weekly subscription to P149 for a monthly subscription. — ZBC
