Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Dick Wolf, MURDER FOR HIRE is a one-hour docuseries that delves into the dark world of contract killings, showcasing murder-for-hire cases that were caught on tape. In an alarming trend, investigators are seeing a sharp increase in hired hits across the United States, and those attempting shockingly include: housewives, wealthy bankers, military officers and even grandmothers. From scorned lovers to jealous relatives, this series explores in rare, never-before-seen footage, how a seemingly good relationship can go wrong and the emotions surrounding the reveal when an intended victim discovers a hit has been taken on their life. Each 60-minute standalone episode features a different case of undercover agents immersing the viewer into the real life sting and investigation as they attempt to catch the perpetrator and ultimately prevent a murder. I the series opener, "An Ex-Wife's Revenge," after a bitter divorce, an addiction therapist blackmails her patient into helping her find a hitman to kill her ex-husband. But what she doesn't know is the patient enlists the help of an undercover officer to try to prevent a cold-blooded murder. After a four-month break, MURDER FOR HIRE returned with new episodes on October 5, 2019 on a new night and time: Saturdays at 6pm ET/PT on Oxygen. In the mid-season premiere, "Crocodile Tears," viewers are taken through the sting operation and trials of Dalia Dippolito, a twenty-six year old escort who became an infamous femme fatale and a media sensation when she was charged with solicitation to commit the murder of her husband, Mike.
On Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 7pm ET/PT, Oxygen premiered "Woman on a Mission," the season finale of MURDER FOR HIRE. A money hungry wife asks several strangers to murder her husband. The plot unfolds like a Hollywood thriller, as police film every step of her horrific plan. With her husband's help, authorities stage a death scene to prove the deed has been done.
