The success of Crims on TV3 – and before that, in radio and podcast formats – is in line with the international success of the true crime genre, which is experiencing a sweet moment.
The Catalan audiovisual media corporation decided to bet on this genre and won. Every Monday, TV3 gathers good audience figures thanks to the premiere of the program ‘Crims’, a series of the true-crime genre that recounts real crimes that have happened in Catalonia. The journalist Carles Porta has brought to the screens a format that was also widely followed on the airwaves and podcasts of Catalunya Ràdio. It is “pure reality to entertain”, as defined by the program.
The program team participates in this case study to shed light on the darkness of this format and explain to the public the secrets of the success of this production.
