-- Emmy Award-Winning Actress and Queen of Daytime Soaps Susan Lucci Is Back as Host --

(Silver Spring, MD) - More blood is shed than tears in season two of Investigation Discovery's hit series DEADLY AFFAIRS, featuring 13 new tales of greed, temptation, and revenge that demonstrate just how fatal some ill-fated attractions can be. From steamy side romances to deadly double lives, stories of passionate affairs, vengeful lovers, and cruel intentions reveal the dark side of love when dirty little secrets come to light. Already television's foremost expert in the art of drama, Emmy Award-winning actress and queen of daytime soaps Susan Lucci returns to host season two of DEADLY AFFAIRS, premiering Saturday, August 3 at 10 PM E/P as part of Investigation Discovery's "Saturday Night Seduction" lineup.

"From soccer game sidelines to the back room of Bible study, affairs can - and do - happen anywhere," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America. "With the sensational Susan Lucci steering viewers through each tale of deception with deadly force, DEADLY AFFAIRS is the ultimate cautionary tale about how romance can escalate from flirtatious to fatal."

Each episode of DEADLY AFFAIRS features two stories interlaced with expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and families of the victims. The line-up of DEADLY AFFAIRS premieres in August is as follows:

Jocelyn discovers the affair too late and in the end, someone is going to get a lesson in murder.

· Later, in Knoxville, Tennessee, Eric and Erin Mclean have no problem taking a troubled student under their wing.

· Later, in the rolling hills of New Jersey's horse country, pizza slinging Rosario DiGirolamo has no qualms about keeping a little extra something on the side.
