In addition to featuring existing content in Quintus’ catalogue it had acquired over 60 hours of true crime content from Red Arrow Studios International, New Dominion Pictures and TVF International to bolster the new channel’s offering.
From New Dominion Pictures, Quintus Studios has acquired The FBI Files (26 x 60'), Ghost Stories (26 x 30'), Escape from Death Row (1 x 94’) and The Unperfect Crime (1 x 94’).
Quintus has acquired The Greatest Crimes of all Time (10 x 48') and The Curse of the Vologne (4 x 45') from Red Arrow Studios International.

FD Crime joins Quintus Studios’ AVOD channel portfolio which is led by Free Documentary, which has nearly 4 million subscribers on YouTube alone. Other channels including FD Real, FD History, FD Nature and ENDEVR also attract a further 2 million subscribers combined on the platform.
"With FD Crime we’re expanding our channel offer by establishing a strong true crime proposition featuring compelling, premium genre content. We’ll establish the channel with our YouTube audience, but as with most of our channels there is great potential to grow onto our other social and FAST platforms” said Gerrit Kemming, Managing Director of Quintus Studios.
