Williamsburg residents can expect to see snapshots of the local area on a new show on the network Oxygen.

Rebecca Boswell, senior director of communications for NBC Universal, confirmed the network Oxygen is currently working on a series about the murders that took place on the Colonial Parkway between 1986 and 1990.

The company announced it was starting to work on the show back in May, she said.

The show’s working title is “The Lovers’ Lane Murders,” but that’s subject to change.

In an email, Boswell sent the official released description of the show:

“Virginia’s Colonial Parkway, a dark and isolated lovers’ lane, was the scene of four brutal double murders between 1986-1990, with each year a new young couple meeting their untimely death. Chilling and eerie similarities connect the four cases, but no one has ever been arrested for the crimes. Now, a team of former FBI special agents led by former FBI Profiler Jim Clemente, intends to change that, with the goal of bringing a monster to justice and providing answers to the victims’ families.”

The show will be produced by XG Productions and Texas Crew Productions. Executive producers for the show are Jim Clemente, Peter McDonnell and Jamie Bruce with XG Productions and then David Karabinas and Brad Bernstein with Texas Crew Productions.

Boswell said the project is far from premiering so information is very limited.
