Deadly Demands is an American true-crime TV show that premiered on June 23, 2016, on Investigation Discovery. The series is produced by Dorsey Pictures, and each episode is approximately 45-60 minutes long. The show features stories of heinous crimes that were committed by individuals who demanded something in exchange for their victims' safety. Through dramatic reenactments, interviews with families of the victims, law enforcement officials, and experts, the show takes the audience through every step of the investigation.

The series' episodes profile cases that shook communities and left investigators scratching their heads. There's something inherently chilling about a criminal who preys on innocent people's desperation and tries to manipulate them for their own gain. Deadly Demands takes a close look at these cases and the heroes who brought the perpetrators to justice.

In one episode, Deadly Demands delves into the case of young 19-year-old college student Brianna Denison, who was kidnapped from her friend's house while she was sleeping. The kidnapper left behind a series of demands, which he expected to be met if he was to release Brianna.

In another episode, the show recounts the terrifying story of a California couple, Jason and Olga, who were kidnapped and held captive for days. They were ultimately released after their families agreed to pay the hefty ransom demanded by their abductors. However, the couple's ordeal did not end there, and the police continued to investigate the abduction.

What sets this show apart from other true-crime shows is the in-depth analysis of how the police and the families of the victims deal with the kidnappers' demands. They don't just hand over the ransom and wait for their loved ones to be released. They work with the police to try and figure out how to outsmart the kidnappers, negotiating where necessary to ensure the safe release of the hostages.

Deadly Demands is not just a series of true-crime stories. It also gives viewers an insight into the psychological impact these kidnappings have on the victims, their families, and law enforcement officials.
