FilmRise to Co-Produce Special About ‘Unsolved Mysteries’

FilmRise, the New York-based film and television studio and streaming network, and Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, the producers behind the “Unsolved Mysteries” franchise, have entered into a deal to co-produce and distribute a commemorative special paying tribute to the TV series.

Timed to coincide with the anniversary of the very first episode of the series, Unsolved Mysteries: Behind the Legacy will go behind the scenes and reveal the evolution of the landmark series.

Unsolved Mysteries: Behind the Legacy is an hour-long tribute to the series that shaped future generations of true crime TV. Including interviews with co-creators Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove, along with long-time producers and directors of the show, the special pulls back the curtain on “Unsolved Mysteries.” The crew divulges behind-the-scenes stories, covering all aspects of the show from research to filming to solving mysteries. The special also features never-before-seen outtakes of host Robert Stack and a look into some fan-favorite cases.

“Unsolved Mysteries” spent nine seasons on NBC before moving to CBS for two more seasons. “Unsolved Mysteries” was the very first program that enabled audiences to play a role in helping the investigation by submitting a story or sending in a tip, which was a novel strategy at the time.

We are honored to be a driving force in the creation of this tribute special.”
