The two companies will also develop a new slate of weekly podcast series and there’s a first-look at new limited series.
Lindsey will host UFO investigative series High Strange. The series will focus on unexplained aerial phenomena and will debut in early 2023.
Meanwhile, Up and Vanished, To Live and Die in LA, Culpable and Radio Rental have all been picked up for new seasons.
Up and Vanished, which has been downloaded more than 400M times over three seasons, will explore another cold case disappearance, having previously covered the disappearance of Georgia high school teacher Tara Grinstead, resulting in two arrests, the disappearance of young mother Kristal Reisinger from a remote mountain town in Colorado, a case that has since been reopened, and the North West Montana disappearance of Ashley Loring HeavyRunner, an indigenous woman who went missing from the Blackfeet Nation Indian Reservation in 2017.
Neil Strauss returns for season two of To Live and Die in LA. The first season investigated the disappearance and death of aspiring Albanian Macedonian actress Adea Shabani and in season two, along with his wife Ingrid De La O, and his neighbors, Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger, and concert violinist Ann Marie Simpson, they will explore the case of Elaine Park, a 20-year old aspiring actress and musician who vanished from her Hollywood apartment in 2018.
Culpable, hosted by Dennis Cooper and produced in partnership with Resonate Recordings, will explore the case of Brittany Stykes, a 22-year old mother who was shot and killed while driving down Highway 68 in Brown County, Ohio. Season one explored the case of Christian Andreacchio, whose death was ruled his death a suicide, despite substantial evidence that points to murder.
Finally, Radio Rental returns with more real-life horror stories–from bizarre crimes to paranormal activity–set inside the fictional world of Radio Rental, an 80’s video rental store run by an eccentric shopkeeper, Terry Carnation, played by Rainn Wilson.
