Because of the intense response of the Death Row series on American TV, Investigation Discovery asked for four additional films. There were cases I could not cover so far, and for me this will be like finishing an unfinished business.” – Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog directed the follow-up to the successful series On Death Row (2012), by documenting four more cases from death row prisons in Texas.

Death Row II, produced by Creative Differences Productions and Skellig Rock Productions for Investigation Discovery, and distributed internationally by ZDF Enterprises, will have its world premiere in Locarno, where the four 50 minutes episodes will be screened.
Herzog will be in Locarno to receive the Pardo d’onore Swisscom on the Piazza Grande and will meet the audience in a public conversation.
