Investigation Discovery and Travel Channel series to keep you up at night


Investigation Discovery and Travel Channel have new series coming and they are guaranteed to keep you up at night.

Investigation Discovery and Travel Channel are staples in my household. It is a rare occasion when I am not watching a program on either channel. Yesterday at the upfronts in New York, according to network press releases and Deadline, Discovery CEO, David Zaslav announced several new series that will definitely grab the attention of fans of true crime and the paranormal.

Travel Channel’s Iconic Line-Up

A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Robert Englund will be hosting a creepy new show for Travel Channel called Shadows of History where he will explore bizarre newspaper headlines. If that isn’t enough to make your horror loving heart pound a little faster than maybe this will. Bruce Campbell just wrapped filming of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Orlando so his show will be premiering fairly soon!

However, there is more supernatural goodness coming viewers way. Ghost Hunters are back with a new show, Ghost Nation which will be making its debut later this year.

This October, get ready to travel back in time to Salem, Massachusetts for Witches of Salem. This is a four-part docudrama that focuses on the craziness of the “Satanic Panic” that lead to drownings, burnings and public hangings.

Investigation Discovery Confronts Real-Life Horrors

Valley of the Damned starts on Sept. 3. This new Investigation Discovery series examines Prison Valley, a picturesque part of the Colorado Rockies that somehow is the scene for six complex murders. More than just a police procedural, the program attempts to delve into the fabric of the town to solve the mystery of why this little hamlet has so many incarcerated denizens.

Sunny Hostin who is a familiar face to those of you that watch The View will be hosting her own show, called The Whole Truth. She will travel the country to investigate controversial murders by taking viewers inside the criminal justice system.

Detective Fil Waters is The Interrogator. Coming to the ID Channel later this year, this particular program shares some similarities with Homicide Hunter featuring Lt. Joe Kenda. Waters is a veteran of Houston Homicide who will be showcasing his ability on how to get perps to confess when he has them in “the box.” This is a side to true crime stories that we rarely see but is always featured on dramas like NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life on the Street.

There are two entries for 2020 on the programming slate. Twisted Love which is executive produced by Khloe Kardashian and is all about the sometimes tragic consequences of crimes of passion. While The Lost Boys of Bucks County is a two-hour special that tells the tale of how a new detective tries to solve the case of 5 missing boys in the posh Philadelphia bedroom community in 2017.
