INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY AND PEOPLE EXPAND EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH TWO NEW SERIES FOR 2018

PEOPLE Magazine Investigates the Dark World of CULTS and Catwalk Criminals in CRIMES OF FASHION

(Silver Spring, MD) - Investigation Discovery (ID), America's leading destination for true-crime programming and PEOPLE, America's leading multimedia brand mixing entertainment news, lifestyle coverage and human-interest reporting, announce today the expansion of their partnership with two new series scheduled to air in 2018. PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS will premiere on Investigation Discovery on Monday, June 4 at 9PM ET. PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CRIMES OF FASHION will premiere later in the third quarter of 2018.

"We couldn't be more excited to expand our wildly successful partnership with the ever-popular PEOPLE brand, with two new series to air, exclusively, on Investigation Discovery," says Henry Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel and American Heroes Channel. "Their fearless journalism and tenacious reporting style combine with these hot-button topics to provide ID superfans a fresh - indeed, unique - perspective to these infamous cases."

"PEOPLE continues to expand the brand into television. Our success is based on knowing our audience and super-serving them with compelling content," said Bruce Gersh, President of PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly, and head of Meredith's in-house television production group. "The PEOPLE editorial team and our in-house development group worked closely with Investigation Discovery to develop two captivating series by leveraging existing IP."

"The launch of these two new series - one on cults, the other on fashion - illustrates the diversity of topics that PEOPLE covers with equal skill and expertise," says Jess Cagle, editor in chief, PEOPLE. "PEOPLE's investigative reporting always resonates with our audiences and extending this content onto television offers them another way to experience it. We have had a great partnership with Investigation Discovery and the PEOPLE Magazine Investigates franchise and are thrilled to be able to build upon that success."

PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS explores how destructive and terrifying cults can be to cult members and their families. Each of the 6 one-hour episodes dives deep inside a twisted American cult, building to that pivotal moment when blind worship turns violent and even deadly. From Jonestown to the Army of God, PEOPLE reporters are on the front lines, revealing the untold stories of power-crazed cult leaders using mind control, sex, and violence to manipulate and dominate followers. Each episode follows PEOPLE's trusted journalists as they doggedly investigate the evolution of these cults, expose their bizarre and brutal day-to-day rituals, and speak first-hand to survivors who narrowly escaped lives of misery to put their cult nightmares finally behind them.

The adage "if looks could kill" takes on entirely unique meaning in the new series PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CRIMES OF FASHION, which hits the runways third quarter of 2018. Each episode explores high-end fashion icons and their couture crimes that captured headlines. In 3 one-hour episodes, tales of depravity, obsession, and family betrayal in the fashion world all have a common thread -- cold-blooded murder. PEOPLE journalists have exclusive access behind the "labels" you know, going beyond the catwalk to reveal that fashion can sometimes prove fatal.

PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CULTS is produced for Investigation Discovery by:

Lucky 8: Greg Henry, Kim Woodard and Isaac Holub Executive Producers; Executive Producer Michael Sheridan and Supervising Producer Dahlia Damaghi.

For PEOPLE: Executive Producers Jess Cagle and Dan Wakeford.

PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES: CRIMES OF FASHION is produced for Investigation Discovery by:

Meredith's in-house production company: Bruce Gersh, Ian Orefice, Robert Baltazar, Jess Cagle, Dan Wakeford and Po Kutchins serve as executive producers from Meredith.
