AMERICA'S LEADING TRUE CRIME NETWORK, INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY AND BESTSELLING AUTHOR, JAMES PATTERSON WRITE THE BOOK ON INTRIGUE AND DECEIT IN ALL-NEW SERIES, "MURDER IS FOREVER"

-Six-Part True Crime Television Series to Debut on Monday, January 22 at 10/9c, Following the Publication of Patterson's Accompanying Paperback Titles -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Sinister thoughts, deepening resentment and manipulative mind games are temporary - but MURDER IS FOREVER. Investigation Discovery today announced the premiere date for MURDER IS FOREVER, an all-new dramatic series created in partnership with bestselling author James Patterson and the Emmy-winning producers at Stephen David Entertainment. MURDER IS FOREVER - Patterson's first foray into true-crime television, based upon the authentic stories featured in his upcoming paperback books - is set to debut on ID on Monday, January 22 at 10/9c.

"You can't make up the astonishingly twisted tales featured in MURDER IS FOREVER - even with James Patterson, the greatest storyteller of our time, at the helm," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "The combination of best-selling author, Patterson, and ID, America's most-watched true-crime network, produces a uniquely irresistible offering for both of our passionate readers and viewers, who will no doubt agree that truth is stranger than fiction."

James Patterson said, "My goal for both the books and television show was to create a groundbreaking series that shatters the true crime mold and attracts the widest possible audience. These stories won't disappoint readers or viewers - and they'll be shocked that they actually happened."

Each hour-long episode of MURDER IS FOREVER presents a unique murder mystery that keeps viewers guessing until the very end - but perhaps the most shocking thing of all, is that these stunning crimes are 100% real. Each self-contained story will live both on-screen and within the pages of Patterson's true crime paperback titles, which correspond to each episode, will be published beginning January 2, 2018 and available everywhere books are sold.

The premiere episode of MURDER IS FOREVER features the story of Frank and Nancy Howard, a devoted, church-going couple who were pillars of their Carrollton, Texas community. But in the summer of 2009, a hit man showed up at their door, forever changing their lives. As investigators track down leads, an intricate murder plot is revealed - stretching back more than two years, involving more than a dozen people and over $3 million.
