Three-time Magician of the Year recipient, Criss Angel, returns for a third season of A&E Network's immensely mystical series CRISS ANGEL MINDFREAK; the youngest skewing series in network history. Each week, viewers revel in witnessing Criss as he captivates live audiences with mind-boggling demonstrations of his skills, goes behind-the-scenes to research and execute his demonstrations with his crew, and meets celebrity friends who drop by to eagerly participate in his awe-inspiring antics.

CONFRONTING JUSTICE (working title)

CONFRONTING JUSTICE (working title) the series is an intimate and dramatic real-life exploration into the lives of the people most affected by a serious crime: the victims, their families and the offender.

Offenders who go through the programs are significantly less likely to commit future crimes. The victims and their family members hope to find answers to agonizing questions and the offenders may reach some resolution, too - learning the true consequences of their actions. In the end, everyone's lives are changed forever.

Nancy Dubuc and Laura Fleury serve as the A&E Network executive producers; and Jon Kroll and Caroline R. Maria are the executive producers for CONFRONTING JUSTICE. The program was created by Caroline R. Maria. The co-executive producer is Sydney Levin, and the Producer is Mark Costa.
