WIVES WITH KNIVES
Season 2 Premieres FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery
Family gatherings at Thanksgiving can be dangerous, especially when the woman carving your turkey is a knife-wielding femme fatale. So scoop your cranberry sauce with caution, but pull up a chair and join other viewers of Investigation Discovery’s annual ode to wicked women, culminating with the season 2 premiere of Investigation Discovery’s hit series WIVES WITH KNIVES on Friday, November 29 at 10/9c.
Settle in after a long day of Black Friday shopping with a lineup that includes:
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29:
- FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG back-to-back episodes at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c
Former FBI criminal profiler Candice DeLong goes behind prison walls to interview women whose shocking stories of love and betrayal landed them in the big house instead of home this holiday season.
- DEADLY WOMEN all-new episode at 9/8c
While male murderers are often driven by anger, impulse and destruction, women usually have more complex, long-term motives. Not all can remain cool, calm and collected. In this episode, Deadly Women are propelled by “Untamed Evil.”
- ** WIVES WITH KNIVES season 2 premieres at 10/9c **
Knife-wielding wives take backstabbing to a literal level with eight all-new episodes about women who stab their significant others. Host Dr. Casey Jordan, a criminologist and behavioral analyst with a law degree, sits down with each wife to reveal what events or motivations led them to slice and dice. While some women were sparked by their own greed and jealousy, others were forced to rely on self-defense tactics after years of domestic abuse.
In the season 2 premiere of WIVES WITH KNIVES, Jameelah Jones is studying her way out of urban Baltimore when she falls head over heels for James Nixon, a troublemaker who treats her right. The couple eventually marries while Nixon is still in prison for robbery. But after he gets out, it’s clear that a decade behind bars has turned the once-sensitive man into a physically and verbally abusive husband, as well as a cheater. The volatility continues until Jones erupts in a fit of revenge and stabs Nixon five times. He survives but refuses to press charges and, incredibly, the couple ends with a truce. The episode includes interviews with Jones and Nixon.
