Vallée meurtrière (Cold Valley)
Based on a true story, this documentary series airing in 4 hour-long episodes is a Canadian production from Pixcom, in collaboration with Quebecor Content. From 1979 to 1982, a serial killer terrorized the population of Lewis-Clark Valley, in Washington State, where five youngsters mysteriously disappeared.

Produced in Canada by Cinéflix, in collaboration with Quebecor Content, this documentary series airing in four hour-long episodes focuses on another true story, this one involving unsolved child murders. In 1976, four kids were abducted and killed in suburban Detroit, igniting a wave of panic and the biggest manhunt in US history.
