‘Murder for Hire’ Returns for Season 2 — Watch the New Trailer!

No one knows crime like Dick Wolf

The mega TV producer behind hits like the Chicago and Law Order franchises is back with a second season of the true-crime series Murder for Hire.

Returning to Oxygen on Oct. 5, the series gives audiences a shocking look inside the dark world of contract killers.

In the upcoming premiere, Murder for Hire goes inside the sting operation and trial of Dalia Dippolito, a then 26-year-old escort-turned-femme fatale who became a media sensation when she was charged with soliciting a murder hit on her husband, Mike, in 2009.

Oxygen’s True Crime Rebrand Keeps Paying Off

Oxygen is an outlier in the cable world. 

Unlike the majority of ad-supported cable channels, the female-focused network’s viewership increased last year, reaching 16.4 million live streams and 10.2 million on-demand views—it’s already up to 11.1 million on-demand views this year, the cable network tells Fortune. In fact, Oxygen experienced the biggest growth in viewers of any TV entertainment channel in 2018. In our era of cord cutting, where “Netflix and chill” has all but replaced “watching TV,” Oxygen’s growth over the past couple of years is striking.

This is largely thanks to its 2017 true crime makeover. That year, Oxygen made an important pivot, trading in shows like Bad Girls Club and Hair Battle Spectacular for titles like Buried in the Backyard and A Lie to Die For. And audiences, mostly women ranging from age 25 to 54, are entranced. The network reports that it’s “the only ad-supported cable

Ramona Singer From ‘RHONY’ Dogs This Bravo Staffer’s Outfit

She worried that she was dressed too casually to go boating with Captain Sandy Yawn from Below Deck Mediterranean. But Bravo staffer and Andy Cohen’s assistant, Daryn Carp was excited to spend her Sunday in the Hamptons.

The fun-loving host of the Martinis Murder podcast told her Instagram followers she was heading out of the city and was grabbing a quick coffee at Starbucks. She said she was going on a boat with Yawn but wondered, “Is this what you wear when you go on a boat with Captain Sandy?” Carp looked concerned.

Charles Manson: What Squeaky Fromme, Sandra Good, Diane Lake Think Now | Crime Time

To one, he’s the man who saved her life. To another, he’s a vicious abuser who was only focused on his own preservation. 

It has been 50 years since some of Charles Manson’s followers savagely murdered actress Sharon Tate and eight others during the summer of 1969—but many of the women who followed the charismatic cult leader now have vastly different views of just who Manson really was. 

While some members say they feel “honored” to have met the notorious cult leader—who lived most his life behind bars before dying in prison in 2017—others now believe Manson “destroyed lives” of not only the murder victims and their families but also of many of his followers. 

 For many, life with Manson began as an idyllic refuge—full of free love, acceptance, drugs, and a greater purpose to care for the natural world.   

“He was the most confident person I had ever run into,” former Manson family member Catherine

Greg Zanis has made thousands of crosses for people across the country. In 2016, he was in Orlando at the Pulse Night Club. A little over a year later he went to Sutherland Springs, TX.

Now the leader of “Crosses for Losses” is back in Texas to leave more in honor of those killed in the El Paso mass shooting.

Zanis first made crosses for the victims of Columbine. He’s since been to numerous mass shootings across the country paying his respects.
