Investigation Discovery (the ID channel) is bringing followers of true crime content the perfect post-turkey binge beginning on Black Friday: The Big Deal Weekend. True crime documentaries and podcasts are extremely popular right now, and there is no better time than now to jump in with both feet.

Investigation Discovery is known as America’s #1 true-crime destination, and it makes sense that they want to give their viewers an early holiday gift with the Big Deal Weekend. So, let’s open up that package and see what’s inside.

The deadly fun begins at 9:00 pm ET on Friday, November 26 with the airing of the three-part special Queen of Meth. All three parts will air back-to-back. Queen of Meth tells the story of Lori Arnold, who became an unlikely drug lord working out of Iowa. For six years, Lori operated a meth empire that reportedly earned her more than $200,000 per week, and in Queen of Meth, Lori herself recounts the road that took her from alcoholic drug addict to an inmate serving 15 years in prison.

Next up is When Philip Met Missy, which airs Saturday, November 27 at 9:00 pm ET. When Roberta Snider went missing out of Hartville, Ohio, her husband Philip was naturally the first suspect. There was no evidence linking him to Roberta’s disappearance, so Philip continued to live his life and began a friendship with a new resident of Hartville, a young woman named Missy. Through some archival content and even real-life footage, we see Philip’s story begin to unravel, exposing him in all of his dark, sinister glory.

On Sunday, November 28, tune into The Big Deal Weekend at 9:00 pm ET to see another three-part special, Doctor’s Orders. Doctor’s Orders dives into the world of motorcycle gangs, an Oxycontin ring and murder-for-hire, as we watch the story of Andrew “Chef” Glick. Glick was a member of the Pagan motorcycle gang turned snitch, and he walks us through the murder of New Jersey’s April Kauffman in 2021.
