[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


- Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Marlo Thomas, with featured commentary from The Doctors' relationship expert Dr. Wendy Walsh-

(Silver Spring, MD) - It was the happiest day of the bride's life, but it was also her last. For the newlyweds featured on Investigation Discovery's new series HAPPILY NEVER AFTER, the reality of "til death do you part" hits sooner than expected when homicide crashes the honeymoon. Part wedding show and part police drama, each episode unveils the murder of a newlywed amidst flashbacks to the couple's happy romance and the moment marital bliss turned to tragedy. Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Marlo Thomas, HAPPILY NEVER AFTER premieres Saturday, July 21 at 10 PM E/T on Investigation Discovery.

"When we think of post-nuptial moments of passion, our imaginations usually turn toward racy scenes in the honeymoon suite, not of one involving murder of the bride or groom," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "From lawfully wed... to unlawfully dead, HAPPILY NEVER AFTER unveils how even the most magical moments in our lives are susceptible to unhappy endings."

Woven into each episode is expert commentary from Dr. Wendy Walsh, a relationship and human behavior expert who is a frequent guest on talk show The Doctors and a regular commentator on CNN. Dr. Walsh is also a professor at California State University Channel Islands, where she lectures on evolutionary psychology and human mating strategies. Dr. Walsh holds a master's degree in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Her area of interest is human attachment and relationship styles.

The first three episodes of HAPPILY NEVER AFTER are:
