(Silver Spring, MD) � As the premier destination for investigative content, Investigation Discovery rolls out a robust fall programming slate featuring gripping docu-dramas, absorbing series and thought-provoking specials. This fall, ID's programming is highlighted by the second season of THE SHIFT, which in last season's finale ranked as the #1 telecast for a network original series, and the world premiere of the network's first original newsmagazine ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN.

"Strong characters, real-life investigations and unraveling mysteries are all critical elements of Investigation Discovery's programming, but the common thread woven into every program is great storytelling," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "With one of the most highly engaged audiences in television, ID captures audiences' attention with programming that informs, entertains and, on occasion, inspires. Indeed, as America's leading investigation network, this new slate well reflects ID's new tagline and commitment to �investigate life.'"

NEW AND RETURNING SERIES PREMIERES:

� THE SHIFT (Season 2): World Premiere, Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 10 PM ET

Investigation Discovery's most successful original series, THE SHIFT returns with its second season following the work and lives of a highly effective team of homicide detectives. With exclusive access, THE SHIFT takes a behind-the-scenes look at detectives whose teamwork and tenacity combine to provide justice for victims and closure for their loved ones. Focused on the efforts and techniques of these elite detectives, THE SHIFT chronicles the "middle shift" of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) that works from 2:00 PM to 10:30 PM, considered to be "primetime" hours for homicide. While those are their official hours, these investigators work tirelessly to solve their cases whenever they happen � to them, when someone is murdered in their city, it's personal.

� THE BUREAU: World Premiere, Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 9 PM ET at 9 PM ET

THE BUREAU profiles the modern Federal Bureau of Investigation and explores the determination required to solve some of the most mystifying cases of the 21st Century. The challenges range from combating arsonists to tracking down terrorists, and the goal is always to bring the culprits to justice. This series not only showcases the heroes behind high-profile investigations, but the role high-tech investigative techniques play in solving these extraordinary cases.

� ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN: World Premiere, Sunday, Oct. 18 at 10 PM ET

Investigation Discovery and respected journalist Paula Zahn are joining forces for Zahn's return to primetime television with the network's first original newsmagazine, ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN. In this new weekly series, Zahn steps away from the traditional anchor chair and into the field to interview the pivotal figures shaping the stories covered in ON THE CASE. Zahn weaves together the archaic details of these cases, revealing the heart of each story. Her compelling and often exclusive interviews lift the secrecy on acts of deceit, malice and revenge in the search for truth and, indeed, justice.

� COLD BLOOD (Season 2): World Premiere, Thursday, Nov. 5 at 10 PM ET

Combining the thrill of a mystery with the visceral experience of great storytelling, COLD BLOOD shows in fascinating detail how real investigations evolve as new evidence surfaces. Each episode presents competing versions of what may have happened as investigators follow the forensic clues in search of the truth. The twists and turns of each investigation are triggered by newly uncovered evidence, revelations from forensic analysis and good old-fashioned detective work, which all culminate in audiences discovering the true events of each case and revealing the people responsible.

NEW EPISODES OF CONTINUED SERIES:

� FORENSICS: YOU DECIDE: World Premieres, Mondays at 10 PM ET through Oct. 26

There are always at least two sides to every story, however only one of them is true. FORENSICS: YOU DECIDE allows members of the audience to draw their own conclusion, testing their own intuition and asking them to decide between the accuser's and accused's side of the story. The critical clues, forensic evidence and intriguing backgrounds are presented in FORENSICS: YOU DECIDE, but until the end of each episode, the audience is left guessing about ultimately which version of events was accepted as the truth by the jury � often, with a life hanging in the balance.

� DEADLY WOMEN (Season 3): World Premieres, Thursdays at 9 PM ET through Nov. 12

Returning for a third season, DEADLY WOMEN takes viewers on a journey into the bizarre world of women who kill for thrills. While male murderers are often driven by anger, impulse and destruction, women usually have more complex, long-term motives. This series explores the psyche of female killers, showing what turns love affairs into fatal attractions or how twisted minds and dark secrets can send women on lethal rampages.

� SOLVED (Season 2): World Premieres Mondays at 9 PM ET from Oct. 19 � Nov 16

This series goes deep undercover to expose some of the career-defining � and sometimes life-changing � cases of police officers and FBI agents. Each episode presents a mysterious case told through first-person accounts directly by America's elite law enforcement officers. A highly experienced team of scientists including forensic analysts, computer forensic specialists, trace evidence experts, crime scene technicians and handwriting experts reveal each case's remarkable investigation techniques, which helped solve these brutal crimes.

WORLD PREMIERE SPECIALS:

� BLACKBOARDS AND BULLIES: ARE YOUR KIDS SAFE?: World Premiere, Saturday, Oct. 24 from 10-11 PM ET

As the finale of Investigation Discovery's STAND UP FOR KIDS: NATIONAL SAFE SCHOOLS WEEK, this one-hour special explores the roots of violence in schools and measures that can be taken to keep our children safe. Schools and colleges are supposed to be safe, caring places for our kids. Yet in some, violence has become a complex epidemic. In BLACKBOARDS AND BULLIES: ARE YOUR KIDS SAFE?, ID surveys the categories of school violence from bullying to gang violence to sexual assault. Using vivid case studies and interviews with top experts, BLACKBOARDS AND BULLIES shows the alarming reality of American adolescent violence at its most explosive and provides information to parents on how to keep their children safe.

� RIP-OFF!: Tuesday, Nov. 3 from 9-10 PM ET

� THE WILL: FAMILIES DIVIDED: Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 10-11 PM ET

THE WILL: FAMILIES DIVIDED explores the intrigue, legal wrangling and high emotions surrounding real-life stories of family inheritance � whether there is a valid will or not. Life-changing sums of money, irreplaceable heirlooms or dynamics of family pride play huge roles as the stakes hinge on the fascinating complexity of the laws governing wills, trusts and estates. In this pilot episode, a probate court is set to decide who will inherit an estate worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to be divided by feuding sons, a newly found "daughter" and a husband with a truly life transforming secret of his own.

Since its launch in January 2008, Investigation Discovery has experienced 19 consecutive months of year-over-year primetime HH gains, and just finished August with double-digit delivery growth in all dayparts among HH, People 25-54, Women 25-54 and People 2+.
