ABC NEWS ANNOUNCES NEW PRIMETIME PROGRAM, "i-CAUGHT," PREMIERING AUGUST 6

Newsmagazines to Also Air Additional Summer Specials and Series

ABC News today announced "i-CAUGHT," an original newsmagazine program with a dedicated website element that will premiere in August. Anchored by Bill Weir, the innovative program will dissect the avalanche of video images now generated by cell phones, webcams, surveillance cams, downloads and uploads. The show will feature the real stories behind these images -- the motivation, the context and the people -- as well as what happens to the people involved after their video is seen publicly. "i-CAUGHT" will premiere MONDAY, AUGUST 6 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) and will continue to air five subsequent Monday nights through September 10 on the ABC Television Network.

In conjunction with the new show, ABC News will also debut the "i-CAUGHT" website that will allow people to submit their own video to be considered for the program. The site will be live beginning in mid-June and people can upload video to it through ABCNews.com. By mid-July all features of the interactive website will be fully operational and display a selection of video submissions that build on the wealth of ABC News' own "i-CAUGHT" material.

Anchor Bill Weir

Since joining ABC News as the co-anchor of "Good Morning America" weekend edition in 2004, Bill Weir has covered numerous breaking news stories, including traveling to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and to London to report on that city's underground terrorist attacks. In addition to breaking news, Mr. Weir has brought "Good Morning America" various feature stories and series, including "Made in China: Your Job, Your Future, Your Fortune" and "India Rising." Both series took an in-depth look into China and India's overall impact on the western world. In addition to "Good Morning America," Mr. Weir continues to report for various ABC News programs. Most recently he has been traveling around the globe for a special "World News" series entitled "Key to the World," for which he has visited Kiribati, Zambia, Dubai and Madagascar, bringing viewers an in-depth look at these far away places.

Additional Programs

In addition to "i-CAUGHT," ABC's newsmagazines will have several other summer programs, including a track-side look into the world of NASCAR and an intimate view of the Royal family. Scheduled to debut are two new "Primetime" limited series, "Primetime: Family Secrets" and "Primetime: Crime"; the original series "NASCAR in Primetime"; and three specials, "Six Degrees of Martina McBride," "Elvis in Vegas" and "The Real Queen: A Year Inside the Monarchy." "20/20" will continue to air on Friday's at 10:00 p.m., ET.

Following are descriptions of the additional summer programming:

"Primetime: Family Secrets"

Six-Part Series Premieres Tuesday, June 26 at 10:00 p.m., ET

"Primetime" kicks off the summer with its latest limited series, "Primetime: Family Secrets." The series goes behind closed doors and sees first-hand the secrets most families would never talk about, starting with the story of a young mother accused of the gruesome murder of her husband, the father of their two young sons. She speaks exclusively with Cynthia McFadden about her ordeal and why she says her husband was found dismembered in the Chesapeake Bay. Other stories reported include a real-life wild child who was locked in a house in Austin, TX for eight years, and the skeletons of one of Hollywood's most infamous families, the Baldwin brothers, whose "black sheep brother" -- Daniel Baldwin -- allows viewers inside his rehabilitation program. Each episode looks at the poignant and sometimes shocking secrets of families -- why they keep them, how they keep them, and what happens when the truth finally surfaces.

"Primetime: Crime"

Series Premieres Tuesday, August 7 at 10:00 p.m., ET

"Primetime" investigates crime in a whole new way by going deep inside real and provocative cases. In some episodes these involve unsolved cases where, for various reasons, the criminal has not been brought to justice. In other episodes the viewer will watch incriminating video of a crime made by the criminal himself. "Primetime: Crime" will retrace the twists and turns of cases, providing new clues and forensic evidence that could potentially solve crimes.

"NASCAR in Primetime"

Five-Part Series Premieres Wednesday, August 8 at 9:00 p.m., ET

ABC News takes a behind-the-scenes look at the preparation, logistics, drama and competition of America's fastest growing sport. For the first time ever, NASCAR gives uncensored access to the lives of some of their top drivers, including Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya and Mark Martin. Millions see the NASCAR world every weekend, but with cameras rolling for five months, ABC News documents what really goes on and what the drivers are really made of.

ABC News Specials

"Six Degrees of Martina McBride"

Airing Monday, July 30 at 10:00 p.m., ET

"Six Degrees of Martina McBride" is about the connections, talent and luck it takes to become a country music super star. The program follows six singers from the middle of nowhere with nothing but their dreams. First they have to track down Martina McBride in six steps or less, proving the theory that everyone in the world is connected by a human chain of six people. If successful, they must prove they can sing, getting their own shot at country music stardom. Ultimately one will be chosen to receive a record deal.

"Elvis: Viva Las Vegas"

Airing on Wednesday, September 12 at 9:00 p.m., ET

For the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, ABC News is producing a two-hour TV event in High Definition that will examine how the King of Rock-and-Roll re-invented Las Vegas, and how it re-invented him. Top recording stars of 2007 perform Elvis' Vegas classics, woven in with previously unreleased music and documentary footage -- never-before-seen-film of Elvis' Vegas years.

"The Real Queen: A Year Inside the Monarchy"

Airdate TBD

From the Queen to Prince William and Prince Harry, a documentary crew from RDF USA has been shooting the British monarchy for more than a year with unparalleled access. The documentary will be culled from hundreds of hours of footage of the queen in both public and private settings. ABC News goes inside the royal family's lives -- the castles and palaces, the royal carriages and trains -- and reveals conversations that no one else has ever heard.
