A new real-time investigative series set to premiere next month will track down the country’s most wanted criminals. “In Pursuit with John Walsh,” premiering Wednesday, Jan. 16, is slated for a 12-week run on Investigation Discovery.
“Each week, John Walsh leads viewers through unsolved violent crimes that urgently need to be closed — where time is of the essence and harnessing the power of ID’s active and engaged audience could bring these criminals to justice,” ID says in today’s announcement. “Joining John in every episode is his son, Callahan Walsh, who leads the operation on the ground, working in tandem with the community and local authorities to search for persons-of-interest.”
In partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), the series will also feature two missing children each hour, using age-progression photos and descriptions in the hope that viewers can help generate leads to their whereabouts.
