WEtv has located a new series about the agonizing search for missing persons.
Rainbow Media-owned WEtv has ordered10 half-hour episodes of The Locator, debuting in September. The series, produced by Asylum Entertainment, will take viewers through heart-warming, and sometimes wrenching, tales of regret and loss as each episode follows veteran investigator Troy Dunn piecing together the puzzles of missing-person mysteries.
In each episode, Dunn selects one particularly dire or time-sensitive “angel” case and set out on a quest to locate the missing person. All locating services are provided free of charge.
“The Locator is an exciting, powerful new series that brings people together through emotionally charged journeys and tireless efforts to reunite families and loved ones all over the world,” said Kim Martin, executive vice president and general manager of WEtv, in a statement. “We look forward to working with Troy and his team to put our viewers in touch with these emotionally intense stories of hope, triumph and healing.”
