WHO NEEDS MELROSE PLACE WHEN ID HAS THE REAL DEAL?

INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S NEW SERIES "HEARTBREAKERS" FEATURES ROLL CALL OF FAMOUS BAD BOYS & VICIOUS VIXENS IN THE ROLES THEY WERE BORN TO PLAY.

"You're the right kind of sinner to release my inner fantasy!" --Pat Benatar, "Heartbreaker" (1979)

(Beverly Hills, Cal.) - As young girls, we wished upon a star that someday a prince - preferably one of TV royalty - would sweep us off our feet and we'd live happily ever after. But then we grew up and learned the hard way that heartthrobs can be real heartbreakers. In Investigation Discovery's (ID) original new series HEARTBREAKERS, hunky Hollywood actors from the '80s and '90s reunite on screen to portray real-life dreamboats who turned into total nightmares. Directed and written in a sensational, Aaron Spelling-esque style reminiscent of classic primetime soaps, HEARTBREAKERS takes true stories ripped from the headlines to show what really happens when the perfect catch turns out to be the perfect criminal. Featuring Kevin Sorbo, Jack Wagner, Judd Nelson, Rob Estes, Tracey Gold, Nicole Eggert, Jamie Luner, Christopher Knight, and Antonio Sabato, Jr., HEARTBREAKERS makes its world premiere debut on ID on Wednesday, August 13 at 10/9c.

"Our viewers simply cannot get enough true stories of love gone wrong," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Fit & Health. "With HEARTBREAKERS, ID has hit on a unique hybrid that marries those true stories our viewers crave, with all the romance and drama that they love in their favorite primetime soaps, featuring an amazing line-up of television and movie legends, in the most over the top, deliciously devilish roles they have ever played."

HEARTBREAKERS is rooted in real stories that are already truly unbelievable on their own. The series also features interviews and behind-the-scenes commentary with the actual people involved, layering in context and additional information about each case. And not to disappoint, HEARTBREAKERS provides a nod to the actors' previous lives in the primetime soap world, dropping little golden surprises that are sure to appeal to the fan's sense of nostalgia: anyone for The Brady Bunch's pork chops and apple sauce?

HEARTBREAKERS premieres on Wednesday, August 13 at 10/9c. Episode information follows:

"Losing My Religion" Starring Jack Wagner, Rob Estes and Jamie Luner World Premiere: Wednesday, August 13 at 10/9c Pastor David "Brother" Love (Wagner) presides over a close-knit church in a community outside of Kansas City in 2000. The parishioners admire him, maybe none more so than Randy Stone (Estes), a loyal church member and one of his closest friends. But loyalties are tested when Love becomes too close with Randy's wife, Teresa (Luner). The forbidden relationship leads to a decade long affair full of secrets and lies. Manipulation, jealousy, money and heartbreak all play a part in this chilling story that leads to a shocking investigation of murder.

"Shot Through the Heart" Starring Christopher Knight, Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Tracey Gold World Premiere: Wednesday, August 20 at 10/9c Set in the mid-1980s, a small Texas town is rocked by a love triangle that takes place at its Junior High School. Principal Hurley Fontenot (Knight) leaves his wife to be with the pretty, young new school clerk, Laura Nugent (Gold). And their relationship is blossoming, that is until Billy Mac Fleming (Sabato, Jr.) came to town. Fleming, the new Football Coach, swept Laura off her feet. Both men wanted her, but only one could have her. It was a classic showdown of brains versus brawn. They would all end up heartbroken. But one of them would end up in a dark, desolate ditch, the victim of an execution style murder.

"Tainted Love" Starring Judd Nelson, Kevin Sorbo and Nicole Eggert World Premiere: Wednesday, August 27 at 10/9c On New Year's Day in 1991, David Russell Miller (Nelson), a wealthy businessman, and Jayne (Eggert), a beautiful single mother, boarded a flight from Orlando to Los Angeles. It would change both of their lives. The chance encounter led to a whirlwind romance and a Valentine's Day marriage six weeks later. It was a fairy tale life full of expensive dinners, exotic travel and extravagant living that they both loved. But there would be no happy ending. After a few months of marriage, private investigator Bob Brown (Sorbo) made some starling discoveries about the dark secrets that had been hidden. Once exposed, a standoff occurred and one of them was left the victim of a brutal and gruesome killing in broad daylight.

HEARTBREAKERS is produced for Investigation Discovery by Intuitive Entertainment with Kevin Dill, and Mechelle Collins as executive producers and Kenn MacRae as director. Tammy Wood is showrunner. For Investigation Discovery, Pamela Deutsch is senior executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel, and Discovery Fit & Health.
