ID, the leading true crime and justice network and discovery+, the premier streaming destination for true crime and the largest library of mystery and investigative content, announced today a jam-packed slate of gripping new programming. Over the span of 2022-23 upfront season, ID will premiere more than 450 hours of premium specials, brand new series and reboots of beloved classics. ID and the discovery+ podcast team will also add multiple series to its growing footprint of original podcasts in the booming true crime space.

“We are thrilled to continuously innovate in the crime and justice space by challenging the traditional true crime storytelling format to create impactful, original programming across our ID linear network, discovery+ and podcasts that not only captivates audiences but illuminates figures, cases and forensic revelations that we know our fans care about,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “That’s why I am so excited to unveil an incredible, expansive slate of programming that’s an impressive combination of fascinating new series and specials, countless hours of fresh episodes from our returning hit series, reboots of series that are near and dear to our ID Addicts, and new podcast content.

Kicking off the slate, ID will sizzle this summer with four blockbuster specials revisiting some of the most headline-making cases of the 1990s. Over the month of August, ID offers a nostalgic look at crimes of the decade with 11 brand new hours of appointment viewing: a fresh look at the shocking trial of Erik and Lyle Menendez for the murder of their parents in MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?; a portrait of the illicit student-teacher relationship that gripped news stations with MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL; a deep dive into a deadly feud between hip hop legends in WHO KILLED BIGGIE AND TUPAC?

Premieres of new programming continue into 2022 with the long-anticipated debut of the exclusive discovery+ special HOUSE OF HAMMER (wt), which chronicles the deeply troubling accusations leveled against Oscar-nominated actor Armie Hammer and the dark, twisted legacy of the Hammer family dynasty. New series launching in 2022 include MURDERER NEXT DOOR, and WILD WICKED WEST (wt) as well as reboots of the classic ID love-gone-wrong series WHO THE (BLEEP) DID I MARRY? and the beloved missing persons series DISAPPEARED, both back by fervent viewer demand.

Specials

MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?

August

Thirty years ago, the nation watched every moment of the Menendez Brothers’ dramatic trial in real time on Court TV. Now, thanks to TikTok and social media, an entirely new generation is learning their story for the very first time. Details of the murder were seared into our collective memory: the 911 call, the crime scene photos, the Rolexes. The media narrative – that two Beverly Hill boys killed their parents out of greed and allegedly concocted a fantastic account to get out of it – remains a national punchline. But now, three decades later, as Gen Z discovers the case, they see the story of two boys who suffered horrific abuse at the hands of their mother, father… and the media. Did we get it all wrong?

WHO KILLED BIGGIE AND TUPAC? (wt)

August

25 years of contempt, controversy, and conspiracy all lead to the same single question: who killed Biggie and Tupac? Now, with exclusive interviews and unique insight into both shootings, this series offers up answers from the key players involved. Who do you believe is telling the truth?

MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL

August

With all the ingredients of a Hollywood movie, this sex scandal shocked, enthralled, and enraged 1990s America. 34-year-old elementary school teacher, Mary Kay Letourneau, who was married with 4 kids, began an affair in 1997 with her 12-year-old student, Vili Fualauu. They not only didn’t deny the outrageous behavior, but they would also eventually embrace the love affair that included French-kissing on school grounds, trysts in her van, and even sexual rendezvous in her family home. The question on everyone’s mind was: Is this true love, or is Mary Kay Letourneau a pedophile, guilty of child rape?

THE KILLER NANNY

August

The murder trial of British au pair Louise Woodward was televised live in the UK transfixing viewers and splitting public opinion about whether she was guilty or innocent. Twenty-five years later evidence is reexamined with unprecedented access to witnesses, the defense team, the prosecution, and members of the jury who decided her fate.

HOUSE OF HAMMER (wt)

Debauchery. Deceit. Abuse. Addiction. Corruption. Over the course of five generations, the men in the Hammer family have more secrets and scandals than any vault can contain. Armie Hammer’s alleged crimes are only the tip of the iceberg. Through a trove of archive and interviews from survivors and family members, the dark and twisted secrets of the Hammer family come to light. Behind the money and power lies a dysfunctional dynasty with its male characters exhibiting all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild.

With few or no witnesses, no CCTV and oftentimes a dead phone signal, these can be the hardest cases for cops to crack.

GO INSIDE THE CONTROVERSIAL AND SHOCKING TRIAL OF CHARLES “CHASE” MERRITT FOR THE MCSTAY FAMILY MURDERS IN ID’S NEW SEVEN-PART DOCUSERIES “TWO SHALLOW GRAVES”

Series to Air Across Three Nights on ID Starting Sunday, May 22nd at 9/8c with the First Three Episodes Episodes Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+

(New York, NY) – In 2010, Joseph McStay, his wife Summer, and their two young sons disappeared without a trace. Three years later, the nationwide search for answers in their disappearance came to a heartbreaking close when the family’s bodies were found in the middle of the California desert in two shallow graves. In 2019, Charles “Chase” Merritt, Joseph McStay’s friend and business associate, went on trial for the family’s murder. Despite incriminating evidence presented by the prosecution, Merritt maintains his innocence – begging the question, did Merritt really kill the McStay family? TWO SHALLOW GRAVES provides an enthralling look into Merritt’s explosive murder trial via unparalleled access to both the defense and prosecution teams, shedding new light on the controversial case. TWO SHALLOW GRAVES will air all seven episodes across three nights on ID starting Sunday, May 22nd at 9/8c with the first three episodes. Episodes will be available to stream the same day on discovery+.

When Merritt’s trial began in 2019, the prosecution thought they had an airtight case to prove Merritt’s guilt: compelling evidence linking him to the crime including bank records, cell phone activity, and DNA placing Merritt in the McStay’s car. However, as the trial unfolded Merritt maintained his innocence and his defense team put forth the possibility that the authorities had apprehended the wrong man… and the McStay family’s killer remained free. Divisive and heartbreaking, the proceedings of Merritt’s trial highlighted a haunting reality: despite Merritt’s arrest, so many troubling questions around the McStay family murders still linger unanswered.

With unprecedented, multi-camera access to the entirety of the trial and personal, never-before-seen footage of Merritt and his defense team strategizing during the proceedings, TWO SHALLOW GRAVES definitively unlocks a fascinating new perspective on the trial and murder case that captivated the attention of the nation. Featuring exclusive interviews with Merritt, his family, and his defense lawyers, as well as the prosecution, investigators, key figures in the case, and the McStay’s family and friends, the series gives incredible insight into Merritt’s defense and the prosecutions’ evidence, presenting an engrossing seven part look into a tragic mystery that is still unfolding.

“The trial of Chase Merritt in the McStay family murders is one of the most shocking and controversial in recent memory. TWO SHALLOW GRAVES gives unprecedented and never-before-seen access into the proceedings that will completely shift how many perceive this case,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “This is a definitive look at the building drama inside and outside the courtroom, culminating in a shocking interview with a missing suspect.”

TWO SHALLOW GRAVES will air all seven episodes across three nights on ID starting Sunday, May 22nd at 9/8c with the first three episodes. Episodes will be available to stream the same day on discovery+. Episode details below:

Discovery and AT&T Close WarnerMedia Transaction

Combination of Discovery and WarnerMedia Creates Warner Bros. Discovery, Global Leader in Entertainment and Streaming

Warner Bros. Discovery to Begin Trading on the Nasdaq as “WBD” on Monday, April 11

NEW YORK and DALLAS, April 8, 2022 – Today Discovery, Inc. and AT&T Inc.* (NYSE:T) announced that they have closed their transaction to combine the WarnerMedia business with Discovery. The combination creates a premier standalone global media and entertainment company, Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc., which will begin trading on the Nasdaq with the start of trading on Monday, April 11, under the new ticker symbol “WBD.”

Warner Bros. Discovery will create and distribute the world’s most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film and streaming. The new company combines WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery’s leading non-fiction and international entertainment and sports businesses, including Discovery Channel, discovery+, Warner Bros. Entertainment, CNN, CNN+, DC, Eurosport, HBO, HBO Max, HGTV, Food Network, Investigation Discovery, TLC, TNT, TBS, truTV, Travel Channel, MotorTrend, Animal Planet, Science Channel, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Turner Classic Movies and others.

“Today’s announcement marks an exciting milestone not just for Warner Bros. Discovery but for our shareholders, our distributors, our advertisers, our creative partners and, most importantly, consumers globally,” said David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery chief executive officer. “With our collective assets and diversified business model, Warner Bros. Discovery offers the most differentiated and complete portfolio of content across film, television and streaming. We are confident that we can bring more choice to consumers around the globe while fostering creativity and creating value for shareholders. I can’t wait for both teams to come together to make Warner Bros. Discovery the best place for impactful storytelling.”

“We are at the dawn of a new age of connectivity, and today marks the beginning of a new era for AT&T,” said John Stankey, AT&T chief executive officer. “With the close of this transaction, we expect to invest at record levels in our growth areas of 5G and fiber, where we have strong momentum, while we work to become America’s best broadband company. At the same time, we’ll sharpen our focus on returns to shareholders. We expect to invest for growth, strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our debt, all while continuing to pay an attractive dividend that puts us among the top dividend paying stocks in America.

“In WarnerMedia, Discovery inherits a talented and innovative team and a dynamic growing and global company that is well positioned to lead the transformation that’s taking place across media and entertainment, direct-to-consumer distribution and technology. The combination of the two companies will strengthen WarnerMedia’s established and leading position in media and streaming. And our shareholders will now have a significant stake in Warner Bros. Discovery and its future successes. We look forward to seeing what the WBD team accomplishes with these industry-leading assets.”

Under terms of the agreement, which was structured as a Reverse Morris Trust transaction, at close AT&T received $40.4 billion in cash and WarnerMedia’s retention of certain debt. Additionally, shareholders of AT&T received 0.241917 shares of WBD for each share of AT&T common stock they held at close. As a result, AT&T shareholders received 1.7 billion shares of WBD, representing 71% of WBD shares on a fully diluted basis. Discovery’s existing shareholders own the remainder of the new company. In addition to their new shares of WBD common stock, AT&T shareholders continue to hold the same number of shares of AT&T common stock they held immediately prior to close.
