Let the countdown begin! If you were captivated by Netflix‘s hit show Making a Murderer, you’ll love The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta. The new A&E series, which premieres Thursday, Jan. 10, follows homicide detectives from the Atlanta Police Department as they unravel the mysteries behind some of the city’s most gruesome crimes. Watch the exclusive sneak peek below.
A description sent to In Touch from the network describes the program: “Over the course of the series, the detectives work to solve the mysterious case of a young woman found naked and shot to death in a neighborhood park. Dubbed Fallen Angel, the case captured the hearts of the local community and the investigative team who worked tirelessly to find leads that could bring about justice for the young woman and her family. In addition to the overarching Fallen Angel case, the series will cover other close-ended cases, which present their own distinct challenges.”
Detectives Vincent Velazquez and David Quinn — who appear in the series — have been working in the homicide field for 16 years, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing. “You don’t rush off crime scenes, you light ’em up,” Det. Quinn said in the clip above.
In other words? Set your DVRs. This is a must-watch.
The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta airs Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. EST on A&E.
