Entercom’s C13Originals Expands Slate, Launches Season One of Explosive New Documentary Series 'Relative Unknown'


C13Originals, the Peabody Award-nominated documentary studio division of leading premium podcast company Cadence13, today announced Relative Unknown, a real life tale of murder, mayhem, crime and family secrets.

Jackee Taylor has been hidden in WITSEC, better known as the Witness Protection Program, for almost 40 years. But after a strange and violent incident reveals secrets about her past, Jackee begins a journey to find out the truth about herself, and her family. Hers is a twisted tale of darkness, murder, mystery, tragedy, and resilience, which traverses the country and lands in the most violent era of one of the country’s most violent cities—1970s Cleveland. At the heart of this story is Jackee’s relative: a former member of the world’s most powerful motorcycle club, a sociopath, a killer, and an informant. Jackee can’t move forward unless she reconciles with his past, and she’s finally telling this story in the hopes that others don’t have to live the kind of life that she has.

Relative Unknown will launch on August 11, 2020 on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.COM and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available Tuesdays through the season. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here:

Throughout the course of ten episodes, season one of Relative Unknown charts Jackee’s torturous journey—from innocent seven year-old in witness protection to determined adult ready to speak out, take ownership of her life and find answers. How did she get there, and why? Was her life always in danger? Jackee realizes she was a pawn, but in whose game? In order to finally move forward, Jackee must confront her dark past.

“Similar to how we approached the critically acclaimed series Root of Evil, telling a compelling story like this directly from the family brings such a unique and powerful point of view,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “Our team has done a tremendous job telling this story.”

“Jackee’s story is mind-blowing,” said Zak Levitt, Executive Vice President of Production, C13Originals. “Her courage to tell her story has inspired all of us, and we’re honored to help Jackee finally bring it to light.”

“People in the Witness Protection Program rarely go public, and never has there been a character as compelling as Jackee,” said David Beilinson, Executive Producer, RUMUR INC. “This series exposes audiences to the secretive and dangerous world that quietly exists around all of us.”

Written, directed, produced and edited by Zak Levitt. Produced and edited by Perry Crowell. Mixed and mastered by Bill Schultz, production support by Ian Mandt and Lloyd Lochridge.
