Investigation Discovery (ID) as announced a new series featuring ABC News’ Sunny Hostin tentatively called “The Whole Truth with Sunny Hostin.” In each of the six episodes, Hostin travels across America to explore the stories behind some of the most controversial homicides the nation has ever seen. The logline: Combining her experience as a tenured journalist and her 12-year career as an undefeated federal prosecutor, Hostin steps into these stories, and into the world of those who were most affected, showing how achieving closure always begins with finding the truth.
“Becoming a part of the Investigation Discovery family has been a dream come true for me,” said Sunny Hostin. “I have spent my career trying to tell the stories of the voiceless and the forgotten and being able to use what I have learned during my career as a federal prosecutor and my passion for journalism and storytelling to shed light on these complex, multi-dimensional and powerful cases is an opportunity of a lifetime.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Sunny Hostin to ID,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, Destination America and American Heroes Channel. “She is the ultimate triple threat: a great journalist, top prosecutor and a woman whose personal background gives her special insight and compassion into these tragic stories. This unique constellation of skills, experience and character along with her advocacy for those who are most vulnerable, is at the heart of this series.”
“The Whole Truth with Sunny Hostin” will premiere on ID in fourth quarter of this year. The series is executive produced by Sunny Hostin, Hilary Estey McLoughlin and Terence Noonan for Lincoln Square Productions and Mike Sheridan and Joe Venafro for First Watch Productions.
