ID Greenlights 'Front Page' Docu-Series

Investigation Discovery has greenlit a new original series that will cover major crime cases within weeks of the actual event.

The “instametary” series, Front Page, is currently developing episodes surrounding the Robert Durst murder, the ongoing murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez and the Napa Valley winery murder-suicide this week allegedly committed by Robert Dahl.

Each installment will feature expert commentary spanning criminal profiling, criminal psychology, investigative journalism, legal analysis, forensic science and police investigation, according to ID officials.

“Working in conjunction with the leading news organizations covering these active cases – including NBC, ABC and CBS – Investigation Discovery will create quick turn-around documentaries outlining the facts and suspicions as they unfolded, almost in real time,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President at Discovery Communications in a statement.
