Forensic Files



The story begins in 1995, a meeting with Medstar Television, a strong producer in the medical field. A famous trial was happening, and a source of theirs was central…OJ Simpson and Dr.Henry Lee, a forensic scientist. The word “Forensics” kept popping up…we grabbed it and ran. Premiering as MEDICAL DETECTIVES on TLC, it ran for 5 seasons before moving to CourtTV as FORENSIC FILES for another 9 years. It amassed 400 episodes and remained their most popular program until the channel pivoted to TruTV.

Sister network HLN picked it up and after several years as their highest rated program, commissioned production of new episodes. FORENSIC FILES II (as they call it) immediately became their highest rated program ever.

FORENSIC FILES was the first and remains the longest-running and best C/I series ever. If’s available, take this ol’ programmer’s advice: grab it!
