ID LAUNCHES NETWORK'S FIRST INVESTIGATIVE NEWSMAGAZINE, ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN

� Zahn Lands Exclusive First-Ever Interviews with Pivotal Figures �

(Silver Spring, Md.) � Investigation Discovery and renowned journalist Paula Zahn are joining forces for Zahn's return to primetime television with a hard-hitting 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 twists and turns of these cases in order to reveal the heart of the story. Her gripping interviews, including several exclusives where people are speaking for the very first time, lift the secrecy on acts of deceit, malice and revenge. ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN makes its world premiere on Sunday, October 18 at 10 PM ET on ID.

"Paula Zahn's journalistic expertise and passion for the truth resonate in this new series, which is dedicated to investigating fascinating stories of perseverance, courage and justice," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN represents ID's first original newsmagazine and reflects the network's core brand attributes of investigating life's mysteries through riveting storytelling."

ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN unravels shocking investigations that have dominated headlines and intriguing original stories uncovered exclusively for ID's audience. To date, ON THE CASE has secured three stories where the subject's side will be heard in exclusive, first-ever television interviews including:

� Ashley Reeves, a high school honor student who was left for dead by a teacher, with whom she was involved outside of school. After the teacher, Samson Shelton, confessed to murder and disclosed the location in a Belleville, Ill. park where he had dumped Reeves' body, the police's recovery operation quickly turned into a life-saving effort when they discovered that Reeves was still alive, having been left for dead for over 35 hours in the middle of the woods.

� Dawn Silvernail, a convicted murderer who gunned down her former lover, Susan Fassett, in a church parking lot in Pleasant Valley, N.Y. Silvernail's trial exposed the sordid truth of infidelity, betrayal and dominance, which had led to a depraved plot of murder.

� Lee Ann Reidel, a convicted murderer who to this day maintains her innocence in a twisted plot of murder and mistaken identity. Reidel was convicted of hiring her boyfriend and a friend to murder her ex-husband, but the plan went awry when the ex-husband's business partner was mistakenly targeted and shot outside their Long Island, N.Y. fitness center they co-owned.

In each episode of ON THE CASE, Zahn tracks the real-life drama of each story by featuring the personal points of view of the people closest to the case, including exploring the motivation and thought processes of the men and women responsible for these crimes. The series includes perspective from law enforcement investigators, families of the victims and the incarcerated, and lawyers representing both sides of legal proceedings. Zahn's interviews reveal fascinating details that uncover the truth while presenting the spectrum of viewpoints directly touched by these cases.

A 30-year news veteran, journalist Paula Zahn most recently anchored for CNN, where she was based in the network's New York bureau and hosted the primetime show Paula Zahn Now. Before joining CNN, Zahn was the host of The Edge with Paula Zahn, a daily news program on Fox News Channel. She joined Fox in 1999 as anchor of its evening news, The Fox Report. Previously she spent 10 years at CBS News, where she co-hosted CBS Morning News and anchored the CBS Evening News Saturday Edition. Earlier, Zahn served as co-anchor of World News This Morning and anchored news segments of Good Morning America on ABC. Zahn has won nine Emmy Awards, the National Commission of Working Women Broadcasting Award and an AWRT Award for reporting on gender bias in education.

ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN is produced by Scott Sternberg Productions and Weinberger Media for Investigation Discovery. Executive producers include Emmy award-winning Scott Sternberg, CEO and Founder of Scott Sternberg Productions; Scott Weinberger, Emmy award-winning investigative journalist and CEO of Weinberger Media; and Paula Zahn, Emmy award-winning news veteran and journalist.
