Wanted works with the Australian public and police to help solve major crimes and bring offenders to justice. The series employs a broad range of social media to encourage the public to help solve crimes, with viewers being encouraged to provide immediate information anonymously that could prove a vital lead.
Fronted by one of Australia’s most respected news presenters, Sandra Sully, and TEN News presenter and former crime reporter Matt Doran, Wanted covers all types of unsolved crime, from cold-case murders to major assault, missing persons, sex crimes, cybercrime, scams and criminals on the run.
Wanted brings together a crack team of crime specialists including forensic anthropologist Dr Xanthe Mallett and experienced investigative crime reporter Neil Mercer. Highly decorated former Detective Superintendent Terry Dalton also reports, bringing a wealth of experience from over 30 years in the field with NSW Police.
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “In the modern world of social media, there is no better time to re-invent a true-life crime program, which has been one of the enduring staples of television. CJZ has a great track record in factual programming and we’re excited to include Wanted in our program schedule for 2013.”
