You may not go about your day wondering how many people are currently employing a hitman, but it’s more than you think. Just check out the new Oxygen series Murder for Hire.
Directed by TV veteran Dick Wolf (Law & Order, Chicago), the true-crime series reveals a spike in hired hits across the country in recent years and uncovers how they happen and how people get caught in the act. Each episode puts the viewer in the backseat as undercover agents investigate and try to catch people who hire hitmen. It’s shocking to see how blasé some people are about getting revenge. You might think twice before breaking things off in an ugly way after watching.
