INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY DEBUTS NINE NEW AND RETURNING SERIES THAT SIZZLE THIS JUNE

(Silver Spring, MD) - This June, television's leading mystery-and-suspense network raises the stakes with a powerful programming slate that promises to tempt viewers with every twist and turn. ID has saved some of its best programming for the dog days of summer, launching six new series and debuting new seasons of three returning hits. Viewers will get a glimpse into the dark side of strange subcultures and secret societies in DEADLY DEVOTION premiering Tuesday, June 4 at 9 PM E/P; ambitions will crumble for the most promising students in MOST LIKELY TO... premiering Wednesday, June 5 at 9 PM E/P; femme fatales take advantage of foolish men in PRETTY DANGEROUS premiering Saturday, June 15 at 8 PM E/P; and star-crossed lovers' forbidden fantasies unfold in POISONED PASSIONS premiering Saturday, June 15 at 10 PM E/P. These premieres join the previously-announced sultry summer series SWAMP MURDERS and SOUTHERN FRIED HOMICIDE.

In addition to launching new, sensational series, Investigation Discovery is bringing back several staples to the June lineup, including HAPPILY NEVER AFTER, I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT, and the season eight premiere of signature newsmagazine ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN, premiering Sunday, June 23 at 10 PM E/P.

"This summer, Investigation Discovery is thrilled to bring to life the stories that resonate most with our audience - those driven by raw emotion and gripping investigations," said Kevin Bennett, general manager of Investigation Discovery. "With nine new and returning series premieres this June, ID remains committed to delivering the smart, seductive and edgy programming that our viewers crave."

Investigation Discovery's June programming slate includes:

NEW SERIES

DEADLY DEVOTION

New Series Premieres Tuesday, June 4 at 9 PM E/P

Hidden among the seemingly peaceful suburbs of America, there lies a bizarre patchwork of unique subcultures and secret societies - extraordinary communities that live on the periphery according to their own set of rules, rituals, and traditions. From renegade Amish sects and New Age cults to centuries-old Gypsy clans, each episode transports viewers into the dark underbelly of a fascinating and foreign world. DEADLY DEVOTION recounts the gripping and unpredictable true stories of everyday people on the search for a sense of belonging in these strange worlds, and end up paying a fatal price.

SWAMP MURDERS

New Series Premieres Tuesday, June 4 at 10 PM E/P

Hot, humid swamps make great hiding places - for bodies that is. In Investigation Discovery's newest series, moss-covered trees, dead-end trails, creaky docks and mangrove forests are the ominous backdrops for the murkiest of mysteries in SWAMP MURDERS.

MOST LIKELY TO...

New Series Premieres Wednesday, June 5 at 9 PM E/P

High school superlatives distinguish the most promising students bound for success: "Most Likely to Succeed" or "Most Likely to Become a Professional Athlete." But what happens when the twists and turns of these hopeful students' lives lead to a dramatically different ending than their yearbook could have otherwise predicted? MOST LIKELY TO... tells the dramatic and emotional stories of celebrated students whose lives don't turn out the way anyone expected.

SOUTHERN FRIED HOMICIDE

New Series Premieres Wednesday, June 5 at 10 PM E/P

Against a backdrop of Southern hospitality, etiquette, and Christian values, evil creeps in like vines on a time-worn plantation. SOUTHERN FRIED HOMICIDE proves that ugliness lurks behind beauty when cracks in good ol' moral values give way to cold-blooded murder. Actress Shanna Forrestall, a native of Louisiana, serves as the gatekeeper to these salacious stories from south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

PRETTY DANGEROUS

Network Premiere Airs Saturday, June 15 at 8 PM E/P

Stylish and irreverent, PRETTY DANGEROUS documents the thrilling true stories of women who, under the guise of love and seduction, conned their partners out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Each episode exposes not only the femme fatales, but also their foolish, unsuspecting victims. Featuring revealing interviews with a string of infamous 'bad girls' currently incarcerated on charges of insurance fraud, entrapment, theft and murder, this dramatic new series takes a mischievous look at the extremes both gold-diggers and fools will go to in their thirst for money and love.

POISONED PASSIONS

New Series Premieres Saturday, June 15 at 10 PM E/P

When blind passion poisons the well of love, fiery relationships can turn cold real fast. Told partially through each woman's own point-of-view, this new series follows a tumultuous romance that tests all the limits of love and devotion. POISONED PASSIONS details salacious stories of star-crossed lovers - women who fall in love with the wrong guy and learn the hard way that, in their cases, love does not conquer all.

RETURNING SERIES

HAPPILY NEVER AFTER

Season 2 Premieres Saturday, June 15 at 9 PM E/P

For most people, their wedding day ignites dreams of a bright future and the hope of fading into the sunset with the one they love. But for some brides and grooms, the reality of "til death do you part" hits come sooner than expected. Narrated by Emmy Award-winner Marlo Thomas, HAPPILY NEVER AFTER tells the true stories of people who meet untimely ends on or around their wedding days. Leading viewers through these tales of romance, sex, greed and betrayal is Dr. Wendy Walsh, a clinical psychologist and relationship expert. As this new series suggests, perhaps love found is not always happily ever after.

ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN

Season 8 Premieres Sunday, June 23 at 10 PM E/P

Profiling fascinating true stories and featuring gripping interviews conducted by Emmy Award-winning journalist Paula Zahn, ON THE CASE is a shining example of ID's core brand mission to investigate life's mysteries through riveting storytelling. Zahn's journalistic expertise and passion for the truth resonate as ON THE CASE unravels shocking investigations that have dominated headlines, and intriguing original stories uncovered exclusively for ID's audience.

I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT

Season 6 Premieres Monday, June 24 at 9 PM E/P

For these perpetrators, the stories may be different, but the motives are always the same - to stay out of prison and live life on the lam. The people profiled in I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT evaded justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid capture. Viewers learn how law enforcement uses all means necessary to capture these fugitives. Additionally, each episode features an interview from prison with these slick culprits, who spill where they found shelter, how they changed their identities and how they almost got away with it.
