DEADLY DALLIANCES AND CRIMES OF PASSION HEAT UP

INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S NEW SERIES SCORNED: LOVE KILLS

(Silver Spring, MD) - Investigation Discovery's new series SCORNED: LOVE KILLS uncovers crimes of passion sparked by a spurned lover's snap from provocative paramour to predacious threat. The 20-episode first season examines the dark side of love with a voyeuristic peek into the lust and obsession that fueled some of the most senseless, but definitely not emotionless, crimes to make front-page headlines. From dalliances with X-rated dancers to a love triangle born from an underground swingers' club, the stories featured in SCORNED pair sexual intrigue with bedded betrayal to form a recipe for murder. SCORNED: LOVE KILLS premieres Saturday, January 21 at 10 PM (ET).

"With the debut of SCORNED, Investigation Discovery stakes a claim on Saturday evenings with a full slate of red-hot programming sure to ignite fireworks on TV sets in bedrooms across America," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Paired with all-new episodes of WHO THE (BLEEP) DID I MARRY?, the lineup of love gone wrong will leave viewers wondering if one really is the loneliest number."

Episodes include:

Behind the Picket Fence Premieres Saturday, January 21 at 10 PM ET David and Joan Shannon seemed like a typical married couple, but they hid a secret double life as members of an underground swingers' club. At organized sex parties, attendees and their dates were encouraged to swap partners as long as they didn't fall in love. One night in 2001, David even propositioned a colleague named Jeff to seduce Joan. Little did David know that his wife was developing feelings for Jeff that ran deeper than the bonds of holy matrimony. She was in love, thereby breaking the cardinal rule of their swinging lifestyle. Killing David seemed like the only way she could ever be with Jeff in a real relationship, so Joan pressured her 15-year-old daughter to murder her stepfather. It wasn't long before investigators discovered a tangled tale of sex clubs, manipulation, and lies. Location: Fayetteville, NC

Never Enough Premieres Saturday, January 28 at 10 PM ET After meeting at the summer camp where they worked, newlyweds Craig and Stefanie Rabinowitz led a charmed life with him working at a top law firm and the couple sharing a home on Philadelphia's glitzy Main Line. But Craig had quite a wandering eye and began spending time at a brothel that catered to his sexual fantasies. When police caught on, Craig was given immunity for revealing every sordid detail in court, and Stefanie never even found out. Craig's coquetries weren't over, however, and he started frequenting a high-end strip club, where he fell for a dancer named Summer. Then, In 1997, Craig made a frantic 911 call to report finding Stefanie dead of an apparent accidental drowning. But when a suspicious coroner revealed signs of strangulation, it turned out Craig would do anything to be with Summer forever. Location: Philadelphia

Desperate Housewife Premieres Saturday, February 4 at 10 PM ET Renee Poole and her high school sweetheart, Brent, were a young family settling into their own home. Brent showed much career promise as a highly-trained mechanic, providing a comfortable life for his wife and young daughter. Renee, however, quickly tired of the house-wife routine. She craved adventure and attention, so when a friend offered her a chance to dance at the local gentleman's club, she jumped on the opportunity. Renee's new employment offered her more than just money. She also acquired a number of lovers, who she brought home with her while Brent was at work. One of these lovers becomes something more. When Brent found out in 1998, he asked Renee to stop seeing the other man. Instead, Brent was gunned down on his wedding anniversary. Location: Winston-Salem, NC

Hot For Teacher Premieres Saturday, February 11 at 10 PM ET Pamela Smart loved good times, rock music and, most of all, her new husband Gregg. But after moving to a sleepy New Hampshire town, Gregg cut his rocker hair and began work as an insurance salesman, a job Pam thought was uncool. She found solace in a group of teenage students at the school where she worked. One in particular caught her eye, 15-year-old Billy Flynn. Flaunting her sex appeal, Pam seduced Billy and then poisoned his impressionable mind with stories of her disappointing marriage. The schoolteacher had one thing in mind: convincing her pupil to murder Gregg. Pam pulled all the strings, instructing Billy and his accomplices to stage a burglary as cover, but they mustn't hurt her beloved pooch or get any blood on the couch. In 1990, six days before their first wedding anniversary, Pam returned home to discover the corpse of her college sweetheart shot in the head. Location: Derry, NH
