OXYGEN PREMIERES "SNAPPED" JODI ARIAS TWO-PART SPECIAL EVENT ON 12/15 & 12/16
NEW YORK - November 18, 2013 - Oxygen Media delves into the fatal love story and horrific crime that captured the nation's attention with a "Snapped" Jodi Arias two-part special event on Sunday, December 15 at 9 PM ET/PT and Monday, December 16 at 10 PM ET/PT. As the world eagerly awaits Arias' sentence, the network's hit true crime series will take an in-depth look into the disturbing murder of Travis Alexander. It will uncover the woman behind the crime - from her idyllic upbringing to the relationship that altered her life forever. Through gripping firsthand accounts and never-before-seen interviews with Travis' friends and experts who covered the case, the two-hour special will step through the entire case, starting with the couple's deadly love affair to the media frenzy surrounding the trial, all of which led to Arias' first-degree murder conviction. The special will explore the salacious details of the couple's relationship, and viewers will hear from co-workers of Arias and Alexander, as well as Diane Schwartz, Juror #6 who voted to give Arias the death penalty, and HLN legal analyst Jon Leiberman.
Attracting millions of fans including a diverse group of celebrities, "Snapped" profiles the fascinating cases of everyday, seemingly average women accused of murder. The series will return to its normal time-slot on Sunday, December 22 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Throughout the week leading up to premiere, "Snapped" narrator and veteran news reporter, Sharon Martin will contribute daily blog posts about the Jodi Arias case on Oxygen.com. Then during the two-night special event, Sharon is taking over Oxygen's twitter account (@Oxygen) so she can give her insight into the special and answer questions from fans.
