Launched on the 15th September, Crime Scene delves into the world of water-cooler crime drama on TV, film and in fiction.

It’s a premium quality, limited edition format and is the complete guide to (and celebration of) this huge genre.

With Total Film, SFX, GamesRadar+ and Comic Heroes, Future is a market leader in specialist popular culture entertainment and give their readers a unique and more in-depth insight into what they watch, read and play. In the last couple of years, sales of crime fiction in the UK neared £200mn, overtaking celebrity biography, romance and food and Crime Scene is an extension of this growing passion.

Covering the hottest crime drama like Sherlock, True Detective, Fargo and The Bridge to the latest novels from bestselling crime authors like Ian Rankin and James Ellroy, Crime Scene will be packed with opinion, analysis, previews, full of in-depth articles and interviews with a clean and clear design.

Rosie Fletcher, Editor of Crime Scene, says, “The crime drama genre couldn’t be hotter right now so it’s an exciting time to be launching a glossy magazine celebrating everything that makes it so compelling. Featuring named contributors and some of the best writers in the industry, Crime Scene is a passionate, in depth look at one of the most fascinating genres around.”

Declan Gough, Future’s Head of Content and Marketing, Film, Games and Music, says, “Future has a 30-year history of being the voice of passionate communities with its magazines, websites and events. It’s famous for brands such as Total Film and SFX. Crime Scene is created by enthusiasts, who are expert editorial creators with unbeatable links to the publishing and broadcast industries.”

“The same team that brought you these magazines, as well as Comic Heroes and numerous successful themed special editions, are behind Crime Scene. No other company could give a crime drama title the beautiful magazine craft and expert opinion that we can.”

Crime Scene will be priced at £7.99.
