New to TVNZ OnDemand in December

TVNZ OnDemand is unleashing a true-crime spree.

New this weekend are miniseries about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, football star-turned-convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez and how a woman remembered 20 years after the murder of her childhood friend that the killer was her father.

And due later this month are series about “killer cops”, Manchester’s police force, a black man accused of setting a teenager on fire, and life inside two UK prisons.

Also coming soon are the return of Swedish crime drama series Rebecka Martinsson, the bilingual Bang and, for its final season, Claws.
