Investigation Discovery has greenlit a six-episode second season of Steve Schirripa-hosted Nothing Personal: Murder For Hire.
That follows a six-episode debut season for the non-fiction series that "highlights business disloyalties, romantic infidelities and stale friendships that converge around a trio of characters including a conniving 'client,' a professional murderer, and a victim who never saw it coming," the network said.
Actor and true-crime aficionado Steve Schirripa, whose character Bobby Baccalieri was famously whacked on The Sopranos, hosts the show that "pulls back the veil of the underground business of murder for hire," including with colorful recreations with actors.
"Nothing Personal and Steve Schirripa represent a perfect ID marriage of compelling stories and a charismatic host that leave audiences wanting more," Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery, said in a release.
"Personally, I am excited to announce the greenlight for a second season of Nothing Personal, which established itself as one of ID's true ‘hit' series in 2011."
According to Discovery, Nothing Personal averaged double-digit percentage increases over Investigation Discovery's 2nd quarter 2011 primetime average for households (10%), people 25-54 (17%) and men 25-54 (43%).
The show is is a Cineflix (NP2) Inc. production in association with Investigation Discovery and Canal D with Simon Lloyd and Steve Schirripa as executive producers.
