DESCRIPTION: (from Investigation Discovery's press release, July 2014) 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.
