Crave is the latest broadcaster to tackle the unsolved murders of Toronto couple Barry and Honey Sherman, announcing new original docuseries, Billionaire Murders, helmed by Toronto Star Chief Investigative Journalist Kevin Donovan.
Donovan, who has covered the 2017 murders since day one, is the host of Star podcast The Billionaire Murders: The hunt for the killers of Honey and Barry Sherman, which launched its second season on Feb. 10, and the author of 2019 national bestseller The Billionaire Murders: The Mysterious Deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman.
Produced and distributed internationally by eOne, in association with Bell Media, the four-part series will debut later this year. Jocelyn Hamilton, President, eOne Television, Canada, will serve as Executive Producer, alongside Donovan, Vera Lubimova (Timber Kings, Yukon Gold), and Joe Danisi (Murdaugh Murders: Deadly Dynasty, Rebellion!: Stonewall), who’ll also direct.
“I’ve been reporting on this case for five years and have uncovered much about Barry and Honey’s last days, and the investigation into their murders. My hope is that this new docuseries takes audiences behind the scenes of the investigation, revealing the inside story of the hunt for the killer,” said Donovan, in a Bell Media release.
The Sherman murders are also the subject of forthcoming CBC Podcasts’ release, The No-Good, Terribly Kind, Wonderful Lives and Tragic Deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman, set to launch Feb. 20. The eight-part investigation features actor Saul Rubinek as the voice of Barry Sherman and is narrated by Kathleen Goldhar, former Executive Producer of CBC’s The Current, who left Antica Productions in January to go out on her own as an independent producer.
