Ben Darkwa, director and producer of Trending Crimes, strives to tell great stories regarding social issues around the world in his own way. His new television series revolves around actor Kojo and his strategy behind investigating, interrogations and solving crimes. An old topic, the crime narrative has captivated modern day audiences around the world increasingly since the first decade of crime shows in 1940.
Crime is a popular genre for video games, films, and novels, but it has become quintessential to a television series’ storyline. Why does it seem that crime is so addictive to 2019’s “binge-watchers?” Studies have shown that viewers are attracted to these crimes shows, because they are full of all the things they are not allowed to do. The dark and mysterious sides of human imagination are haunting and undoable in their own realities, so viewers escape to television to satisfy that interest.
“The aftermath of a crime could have a devastating impact on life and livelihoods. Happiness, peace of mind and self actualization would only be, but textbooks words to a victim,” said Darkwa. “Using experiences of family and friends, having shared in their pain and grief, Trending crimes can only be but a tool to create crime awareness.”
The niche of “true crime” is what has been expanding the overall buzz and interest in general crime-focused shows. Specifically, the adrenaline rush that humans produce after witnessing terrible crimes has an addictive effect on the human brain. Similar to a thrill-chasing child who wants to go on every ride, a true crime television series has been shown to allure its audience in a similar way until the end of the series.
In the new world of online streaming via Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. television series have the opportunity to fit a variety of genres, yet the true crime niche is still overwhelming with countless options to watch. Trending Crimes is different as it is based on true events that have occurred in the lives of Darkwa’s friends and family in Ghana, West Africa. The personable connection that Darkwa has to each scene allows the actors and audience to both emphasize and possibly relate to the overall series.
