TCA: Investigation Discovery books ‘Tamron Hall’

'Crime' newsmag hosted by 'Today', MSNBC correspondent

Investigation Discovery has greenlit “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall,” underscoring the cabler’s strong relationship with NBC and Peacock Prods., NBC News’ nonfiction shingle.

Newsmag will be hosted by Tamron Hall, who holds on-air posts on NBC’s “Today” and MSNBC’s “NewsNation with Tamron Hall.” Each hourlong episode of “Deadline: Crime” will explore true crime stories, delving into why a crime happened and how it was investigated.

Subject matter is particularly near and dear to Hall, whose sister was a victim of murder in a case that remains unsolved.

ID prexy and g.m. Henry Schleiff said he is “thrilled to work with our partners at NBC News’ Peacock Productions,” and emphasized to Variety the unique qualities of the partnership between Peacock and ID. While ID is housed under the Discovery Networks umbrella, Peacock Prods., an NBC-owned shingle, has provided numerous series to the cabler, including “Fatal Encounters” and “True Crime with Aphrodite Jones,” in addition to “Deadline: Crime.”

What’s more, the crossover of NBC’s long-running newsmag “Dateline” to ID along with the crossover of notable anchors like Hall emphasizes the connection for viewers by transitioning familiar NBC programming aesthetics to ID.

Schleiff expects ID’s relationship with Peacock Prods. to bear new fruit in the near future.

“Deadline: Crime” is exec produced by Loren Michelman for Peacock Prods., and Eugenie Vink for ID. The 13-part series will debut this fall.
