Digging deep into Oxygen’s true crime transformation

Longtime viewers of NBCUniversal’s Oxygen have been treated to a new direction in programming in recent months as a steady stream of true crime content begins to pour from the cable network’s tap.

The influx of darker content – programming surrounding kidnappings, assaults, rapes and murders – comes as the former female-focused lifestyle channel marked its intention to rebrand in February to a crime destination network for women, with four programs rolling out shortly thereafter to kick off the slate: Three Days to Live, which premiered March 5; Cold Justice, which moved to Oxygen from TNT on July 22; The Jury Speaks, which also aired July 22; and The Disappearance of: Natalee Holloway (pictured, above), launching Saturday (Aug. 19) at at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Eve Nance Murder Case Profiled On Snapped

A Fond du Lac murder case was recently featured on the Oxygen Network’s program “Snapped.” The program featuring the Eve Nance case aired on the network on August 6th. It recalled the shooting death of Tim Nance in November of 2013. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says his office was asked to participate in the interviews for the program, but they declined because the case has been appealed and post-conviction motions could still be filed. Former District Attorney Dan Kaminsky did agree to be interviewed. He says he was asked because they needed somebody to answer legal questions and to give them some context. He was interviewed last year in a make-shift studio on the top floor of the Holiday Inn Express in Fond du Lac. He says it was fun because he got to bring his daughter along. He says he sat in front of the

McClancy murder case on the airwaves again

Martha Ann McClancy, the former Coker Creek resident found guilty in the poisoning death of her husband, will be featured in a television documentary later this week on the Oxygen Network.

McClancy’s 2015 trial was first reported by The Advocate Democrat, and was the subject of an NBC Dateline episode last year. The documentary to be aired this Sunday will be on “Snapped,” a show which features women who have been found guilty in connection with the death of a spouse. The show will air at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

McClancy was found guilty of conspiring to kill her husband, Robert McClancy, with an over-dose of prescription drugs which he was taking for post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD). Testimony in the trial revealed that she put the medications in his food, eventually leading to his death.

McClancy, now 68, was involved in a love triangle and later married her accomplice in

Inside Oxygen’s Crime-Focused Redesign (Exclusive)

Oxygen has a new look to go along with its major programming revamp.

Ahead of moving full-time to solely crime programming on Wednesday, the NBCUniversal cable channel has unveiled its rebranding and The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive first look.

Set to debut at midnight, the new look gives a big nod to the channel’s dramatic programming shift and draws inspiration from police records, court documents and newspaper headlines.

“We tried to touch on hearing, seeing, touch — we tried to get all of the senses in to provoke people in this project because crime is such an emotional genre,” Oxygen vp brand design Nancy Mazzei tells THR.

As seen in Oxygen’s sizzle reel below, the new promos use much more serious music and show imagery of every step of a potential crime, from the scene of the act to the investigation to the jail cell to court. Additionally, Oxygen’s logo, as
