ID Commissions Tony Harris-Led Crime Series


NEW YORK: Investigation Discovery (ID) has given the green light to Scene of the Crime with Tony Harris (working title), a new crime series due to premiere next year.

Production on the series, featuring Emmy Award-winning journalist Tony Harris, will begin this summer. The series will air exclusively on Investigation Discovery. Each episode of the six-part series will reveal the many different types of crime that occur and the people who are involved in them.

“Tony has been a key contributor to the Investigation Discovery team for more than two years now with our very successful series Hate in America,” said Henry Schleiff, the group president of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “His uniquely passionate and articulate approach to investigative journalism was eye opening to our viewers around the world and, accordingly, we were eager to expand his role, allowing us to see firsthand his work at the scene of a crime, as he peels back the layers on what motivates some of our nation’s most horrific acts of violence.”

“I’m thrilled to take on a bigger role at ID,” Harris added. “The flavors and strands of crime are infinite, so I know this will be a gripping journey into the underbelly of criminal subcultures, most that we may know little about. This is right up my alley in terms of investigative reporting and I am excited to bring viewers along for the ride with me.”

The show is produced by Part2 Pictures with David Smith and Amy Bucher as executive producers. For Investigation Discovery, Lorna Thomas serves as executive producer.
