Plot Synopsis

THE REAL MURDERS OF ATLANTA is a one-hour docuseries that portrays cases of homicide that highlight the boundaries between gentrified Southern dynasties, hip hop hustlers, and the flashy nouveau riche of this metropolitan mecca of music, entertainment and tech. Told by the investigators, witnesses, reporters and loved ones who have direct connections to the cases, each one-hour story brings Atlanta's hustle and deadly decadence into sharp focus. It's the dark side of the New South, where deadly battles for status and affluence emerge between those who are willing to kill for the good life and those willing to kill to keep it. Cases include:

"Blunt Instrument" (Sunday, January 16, 2022): When a tech mogul is found bludgeoned to death in his lavish Roswell bedroom, detectives quickly compile a long list of potential suspects. Police ultimately zero in on one scorned lover who wouldn't take no for an answer.

"Blood Feud" (Sunday, January 23, 2022): Atlanta's thriving hip hop scene is stunned when up-and-coming rapper Lil' Phat is executed in broad daylight. The case takes detectives into a world of mobsters and kingpins where the victim's lyrics may have foretold his demise.

"A Deadly Union" (Sunday, January 30, 2022): The grisly double-murder of two Lockheed employees stuns their families and leaves investigators baffled. As the case languishes for years, investigators are unable to make an arrest until the prime suspect kills again.

"Final Judgment" (Sunday, February 6, 2022): When a prominent Atlanta judge is shot dead in her upscale home, detectives must figure out if the killing was payback from any criminals she had put behind bars, or if someone close had a personal score to settle.
Season 2 of THE REAL MURDERS OF ATLANTA debuted on Friday, March 17, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT on Oxygen. The new season focuses on those with a direct connection to the cases, including the investigators, witnesses, journalists and loved ones of the victims. Each episode features a story unique to Atlanta, where the convergence of the technology, entertainment and music industries have brought fame and wealth to the forefront sometimes followed by very deadly consequences. The murders of Darius Bottoms, a member of one of Atlanta's most prominent families; Jia Yann "James" Chao, a successful IBM programmer; and Terry Porter, a conscientious man who dedicated his life to helping the elderly, are among the cases that give a fresh perspective to this season. Episodes include:

"West End Nightmare" (Friday, March 17, 2023): When a hero of Atlanta's West End is executed in front of his home, detectives must find the killer with no evidence and no witnesses. The killer is finally brought to justice and the community is in disbelief when he's identified.

"Deadly Election" (Friday, March 24, 2023): The newly elected Dekalb County sheriff is murdered just days before taking office. When the task force digs into who would kill such a decorated public figure, they uncover a chilling conspiracy that shakes Atlanta law enforcement to its core.

"Terror in East Point" (Friday, March 31, 2023): A serial shooter terrorizes the quiet Atlanta suburb of East Point, leaving a trail of bodies and cryptic notes in his wake. With five shootings and counting, investigators race against the clock to find the killer before he strikes again.

"Crime of Fashion" (Friday, April 7, 2023): When a rising star in Atlanta's fashion scene is murdered, detectives must determine if the shooting is related to a business deal gone bad or is it a personal vendetta? The team cracks the case and are shocked when they discover the mastermind.
