The First 48 is the longest-running homicide investigation series on television. Now in its 17th season, the show has filmed more than 2,000 murders, in 22 locations, for over 380 episodes. The creator John X. Kim will give an insider’s account of this popular program: the creative genesis, the highs and the lows, the inner workings of the production and dedicated investigate teams that work daily to bring justice to victims’ families.

John will be joined by Toney Armstrong, a former head of the Memphis homicide unit and one of the popular detectives from the program. Armstrong led his team in solving dozens of homicides featured in the series, including the infamous “Lester Street” case in which Armstrong confronted a cunning mass murderer and extracted a shocking confession.
