April 27, 2020 – NEW YORK – Facebook greenlit a second season of Buried with Love, a true crime documentary series to air exclusively on Facebook Watch. To-date, more than 3 million people have watched at least one minute of any episode across Buried With Love: The Brooke Skylar Richardson Case series’ first season, and across these episodes, the series has garnered tens of thousands of engagements.
In Season 2, Buried with Love: The Watts Family Murders will track the triple homicide murder investigation of Chris Watts. This eight-part short form series will put viewers in the role of the investigator by revealing surveillance footage and forensic evidence as it was discovered in real time. Interrogation videos, unsettling confessions, and chilling news footage will lead to the shocking truth in the twisted case of Watt’s missing wife Shannan and their two children. Shannan, who was pregnant at the time, was eventually discovered in a shallow grave. This series will take you behind the headlines in a story that has garnered widespread national attention.
“Buried With Love really taps into the thriving community of true crime lovers on Facebook, who have really become engaged with the tragic stories,” said Law&Crime Productions President Rachel Stockman. “We are thrilled to partner with Facebook again.”
After a successful first season, Whitney Ellis returns to serve as executive producer and showrunner for season 2. Stockman, along with Law&Crime founder Dan Abrams will also serve as executive producers. Buried With Love: The Watts Family Murders premieres on Facebook Watch on May 3, 2020.
