Copycat Killers 

Fridays from 16th June, 11pm 

Returning for a sensational second season, COPYCAT KILLERS examines the crimes that blur the line between reality and fantasy, as fictional villains become the inspiration for real life criminals, with terrifying consequences. This season sees cult classic ‘Reservoir Dogs’, become the catalyst for a crime which copies the show’s most gut-wrenching, twisted idea, and ‘The Purge’ inspires one super-fan, fuelled by social hatred, to develop a plot so violent that no on-screen villain would think of going through with it.
