Press release from Investigation Discovery, March 19, 2015:
Investigation Discovery announced today the greenlight of FRONT PAGE, a new “instamentary” series covering major cases making headlines, within just weeks of the initial incident or arrest.
“Working in conjunction with the leading news organizations covering these active cases – including NBC, ABC and CBS – Investigation Discovery will create quick turn-around documentaries outlining the facts and suspicions as they unfolded, almost in real time,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President at Discovery Communications. “We’ve learned through our popular CrimeFeed.com website and viewer feedback that ID is a trusted source for information on the intricacies of complicated cases – creating instamentaries ripped from the front pages of newspapers across the country is a natural evolution of our storytelling.”
Current subjects in development include the multi-decade Robert Durst investigation culminating in his recent arrest, the ongoing Aaron Hernandez trial and the Napa Valley winery murder-suicide this week allegedly committed by Robert Dahl. Each installment will feature expert commentary from ID’s roster of experts spanning criminal profiling, criminal psychology, investigative journalism, legal analysis, forensic science and police investigation.
