INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY GREENLIGHTS SEASON TWO OF ITS HIT
NEWSMAGAZINE “DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL”
(Pasadena, CA) – Tamron Hall, host of MSNBC’s News Nation and correspondent on NBC News’ Today, returns to Investigation Discovery as host of its newest original investigative news program DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL. Building off the success of its first season, the series continues with 10all-new episodes featuring complete coverage of crimes that shocked the nation and shook the small communities where they took place. Season two remains true to Hall’s signature style of reporting as she doggedly searches for the truth in cases where crucial evidence, testimonies, and motives have eluded those seeking justice. Produced by Peacock Productions, NBC News’ award-winning production arm, the all-new season of DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL heats up Investigation Discovery in Spring 2014.
A respected anchor and investigative journalist, Hall knows first-hand the effects of violent crime. Her older sister was a murder victim in a case that is still officially unsolved. Each episode of DEADLINE: CRIME chronicles Hall’s hunt for answers as she sits down for in-depth interviews with key players and hits the street to conduct her own investigations to reveal what caused people to turn to crime and whether justice was ultimately served.
“Investigation Discovery is thrilled to have Tamron Hall return to the network on DEADLINE: CRIME,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Military Channel, and Destination America. “Our viewers clearly appreciate the fact that Tamron’s personal experience defines her passion for investigative journalism and contributes to her unique storytelling approach.”
“I’m looking forward to digging into new cases for this new season of DEADLINE: CRIME and revisiting some key stories from season one that have profoundly impacted me,” said Hall. “This type of reporting truly motivates me, and you will see in this new season that I will spend less time in the studio and more time on the scene, encouraging people to be more proactive to help with open cases, and talking with the families who were deeply affected by these crimes.”
DEADLINE: CRIME WITH TAMRON HALL is produced for Investigation Discovery by NBC News’ Peacock Productions with Bruce Kennedy as executive producer and Sharon Scott as President and General Manager. For Investigation Discovery, Eugenie Vink is 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 and Military Channel.
