Investigation Discovery Sets ‘People Magazine Investigates’ Series

Investigation Discovery and People magazine are partnering for a 10-part series that tackles some of history’s most notorious crime stories.

“People Magazine Investigates” will focus on the stories behind headlines, emphasizing the impact on families, potential new evidence and interviews. The series is yet another reflection of TV’s mania for true-crime stories, which is Investigation Discovery’s stock in trade. The series is targeted to premiere in the fall.

“It’s a natural fit for one of the most trusted brands in reporting, People magazine, and Investigation Discovery,” said Henry Schleiff, group president at Discovery Networks.

People magazine and the rest of the Time Inc. publications have been actively seeking to expand their operations into TV and digital video. Crime reporting has been a staple for People since its inception in 1974. Among the crime stories targeted by the series are Los Angeles’ so-called Grim Sleeper serial killer and the 2013 murder mystery surrounding California teenager Hannah Anderson.

“In all of our crime content, and on all our platforms, People pays tribute to the victims, and provides their friends and families an opportunity to tell their stories. This approach distinguishes People’s coverage, as we identify the most compelling local stories and give them a national forum,” said Jess Cagle, People’s editorial director.
