Escape Network Rebrands As Court TV Mystery, With Lineup Including ‘The First 48’

  • Deadline
Escape, an established multicast network owned by E.W. Scripps’ Katz Networks, will rebrand itself as Court TV Mystery on September 30.

According to the official announcement of the move, the rebrand will “continue the mission of Escape,” which targets women 25 to 54 with true-crime-focused programming.

Escape is currently available in 103.5 million homes, or 94% of the U.S. TV footprint. Multicast networks, have become a burgeoning sector, emerging from the TV industry’s transition to high-definition signals several years ago, which unlocked new broadcast spectrum capacity.

Katz owns several other multicast networks and last May revived Court TV, an early pioneer known for its gavel-to-gavel coverage of the trials of O.J. Simpson and many others. As a sister network to Court TV, Court TV Mystery will feature a lineup of mainstays like The First 48, Forensic Files, American Greed, FBI Files, Crime Watch Daily and Unsolved Mysteries.
