NEW YORK, NY, April 15, 2009 � Season two of the hit A&E original unscripted series "Crime 360," premieres on Thursday, May 21 at 10 PM ET/PT. The one-hour series, that brings real criminal investigations to life through the use of cutting-edge CGI and forensic technology, returns with all new episodes.

"'Crime 360' immerses viewers in real life investigation in a unique way by enhancing the experience with high-tech visualizations of evidence, forensic analysis and detectives' theories," said Robert Sharenow, Senior Vice President of Non-Fiction and Alternative Programming, A&E.
Using state-of-the-art 360-degree digital photography, 3D laser scanning and computer-generated imagery (CGI), "Crime 360" takes viewers inside real investigations bringing the crime and evidence to life as it unfolds in real time.
