Scott Watson cast as lead in"A Crime to Remember"
- 02 Sep
I've been cast as a lead in the Emmy-winning, scripted true-crime series A Crime to Remember
In A Crime to Remember actual murder cases from the 1950s and '60s get sleek, cinematic treatment, transporting viewers back to a pre-forensics era when sometimes it was more about how suspects looked than what they did that determined guilt. A narrative by a fictional bystander -- who "knew" the victim -- drives the plot, while reporters who covered the case explain how the events impacted society. Artfully crafted re-creations play out like period thrillers, staying true to fashions and styles, while spotlighting cultural taboos and social norms surrounding each case.
This is my first time playing a Detective on TV, and besides the countless herbal cigarettes that I've had the pleasure to smoke, it has been fascinating to approach the story as an investigator in the 60's, when so much more of the case was dictated by the facts and instincts.
A huge thanks to Randi Glass and everyone at Susan Shopmaker casting for the opportunity to be a part of such a cinematic and groundbreaking TV experience!
My episode is a part of Season 3, which will begin airing in November of 2015.
