SUSAN LUCCI, EMMY AWARD-WINNING ACTRESS AND QUEEN OF DAYTIME SOAP OPERAS, JOINS INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S PRIMETIME LINE-UP

- Lucci to host and narrate the 'real-life soap' DEADLY AFFAIRS -

(Pasadena, Calif.) - The incomparable Susan Lucci, best known for her portrayal of the deliciously devious Erica Kane on ABC's All My Children, is bringing her cunning craft to cable as host and narrator of Investigation Discovery's world premiere original series DEADLY AFFAIRS. With filming scheduled to begin in March, the ten-part series is slated to debut in primetime in the fall of 2012. The announcement was made today by Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery.

"There is simply no other actress in the world more qualified than Susan Lucci to host DEADLY AFFAIRS, Investigation Discovery's answer to addictive daytime soap operas. After all, Susan's alter ego, Erica Kane, created her fair share of steamy scandals and deadly dalliances, often all in one hour," said Schleiff. "While our series, of course, has the added benefit of featuring real stories of betrayal, we are delighted that Susan will bring her own distinctive voice and dramatic flair to our real life soap, DEADLY AFFAIRS."

From love triangles that implode to office romances exposed; from sleeping with the enemy to bedding your best friend's husband; and from grooms ditching the ceremony with a bridesmaid in tow to swingers deciding the grass actually is greener; stories of passionate love affairs turned crimes of passion aren't just happening on daytime television. They happen in real life and, sometimes, are even stranger than fiction.

DEADLY AFFAIRS is produced for Investigation Discovery by Sirens Media. For Sirens Media, Valerie Haselton Drescher and Rebecca Toth Diefenbach are executive producers. For ID, Pamela Deutsch is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
