Oxygen’s Rod Aissa Talks ‘Criminal Confessions’ and the Network’s Transition to ‘Full Time True Crime’

When Emily Lambert was reported missing by Robert Early, investigators were alerted to a crime that might have escaped immediate attention had he not called. Was Early a concerned boyfriend? Or, was there much more to him than met the eye? While investigators questioned him and as he went from interviewee to prime suspect, Lambert’s 2 young daughters waited for word on the whereabouts of their mom. Emily Lambert’s parents immediately made the 8-hour drive to New Mexico, never imagining they would eventually be the ones to raise the two girls. Oxygen’s new series Criminal Confessions, which debuts Sunday, starts with an episode about Emily Lambert’s case. It examines the process by which police investigators question potential subjects, in a manner that elicits a confession deemed admissible in a courtroom.

The Oxygen Channel Is Becoming A True-Crime, All The Time Network

Now, the last remaining sliver of Oxygen’s former programming schedule is “Snapped,” which has been wearing in its “re-cre” formula over 20 seasons, dramatically recreating murders. Some of the show’s successes may have something to do with its unexpected subject material: “Snapped” is all about women killers, or suspected killers, spinning from them salacious tales of adultery, greed, fear and revenge when statistics show that women are overwhelmingly victims of domestic violence, not its perpetrators. It’s been a longtime hit for the network, and it’s not going anywhere, at least as long as women continue harming their husbands, boyfriends, abusers that share one or neither of those labels, and, sometimes, children.

TV’s Oxygen network to focus on crime stories – Winston

The Oxygen television network is looking behind bars for inspiration.

The NBC Universal-owned network said that starting this summer it will focus its programming on crime stories that appeal to women, joining an already crowded television genre.

Its other programming, such as “Bad Girls Club” and “Battle of the Ex-Besties,” will be phased out.

Oxygen’s saga speaks to the survival pressures faced by many cable networks. NBC Universal recently decided to shut down its Esquire network and make it digital-only. When Oxygen’s launch was announced in 1998 with prominent backers that included Oprah Winfrey, the goal was to make it a general interest network for women to compete with Lifetime, only hipper.

The change won’t be completely abrupt. Oxygen has seen success during the past year with a prime-time block of crime-oriented programming on three nights, recently increasing it to four. That helped Oxygen to a 42 percent increase
