Portsmouth lec­turer to star in new TV se­ries


A CITY aca­demic will ap­ply his ex­per­tise as part of a new crime se­ries for TV.

Se­nior lec­turer in crim­i­nol­ogy and polic­ing at the Univer­sity of Portsmouth, Dr Brian Fred­er­ick, will ap­pear as an ex­pert for 20 episodes of Meet, Marry, Mur­der, which will be broad­cast in the US later this year and in­ves­ti­gates real-life cases of in­ti­mate part­ner homi­cide in the United States.

Over two days of film­ing, Dr Fred­er­ick delved into 13 cases that range from a man who re­cently killed his wife as a re­sult of the lock­down in the mid-west United States, to a woman who em­ployed her fa­ther to as­sas­si­nate her hus­band on his front porch.

Dr Fred­er­ick said: ‘The na­ture of these true crimes are shock­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing in equal mea­sures. I love get­ting into the crim­i­nal mind and ex­plain­ing what makes it tick.’

A UK ver­sion of Meet, Marry, Mur­der is al­ready in pro­duc­tion for view­ers on this side of the At­lantic, with episodes due to be re­leased later this year.
