ABC NEWS' "NIGHTLINE" LAUNCHES "NIGHTLINEPRIME"

"Nightlineprime" Launches with "Secrets of Your Mind -- Why We Do What We Do," Four-Part Series on the Science of the Brain, Premiering Thursday, August 19

ABC News launches a new primetime series, "Nightlineprime," with four installments of "Secrets of Your Mind -- Why We Do What We Do." This marks "Nightline's" first foray into primetime series. "Secrets of Your Mind" premieres THURSDAY, AUGUST 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) and continues for three successive Thursdays, concluding September 9.

In this series, "Nightline" anchors and producers explore the mystery and the science of the brain through a range of extraordinary case studies. The series also features the work of world renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Julian Bailes, of West Virginia University Health Sciences Center, and his patients. Each installment of "Secrets of Your Mind" will focus on a different research area, including love's impact on the brain, medical emergencies involving the brain, violence and the brain, and food and the brain. T

hursday, August 19: "Nightline" co-anchor Cynthia McFadden explores the brain in love. She follows a remarkable story of love lost and found again after a traumatic brain injury. McFadden also talks to a man who is literally paralyzed by love�a peculiar brain condition that causes his body to shut down when he experiences feelings of love for his wife.

Thursday, August 26: Martin Bashir takes a journey inside the mind of a psychopath. Bashir examines evil's origin in the brain, whether people are born with a tendency for evil or violent behavior, and whether that can be detected in childhood. In his reporting, Bashir visits death row for a close-up look at two of the country's most notorious serial killers. He also speaks exclusively to the distraught father of Chris Benoit, the pro-wrestler who murdered his family then himself.

Thursday, September 2: "Nightline" co-anchor Terry Moran embeds with Dr. Bailes for a first-hand look at life-and-death drama inside the operating room. It's a race against time as cameras capture an aneurism bursting on the operating table and Dr. Bailes and his team have only seconds to react.

Thursday, September 9: Food on the brain and its impact on America's obesity epidemic is the topic of the fourth and final installment. Martin Bashir reports on a story of an obese woman who has tried everything to lose weight, and now is embarking on the most revolutionary weight loss procedure ever attempted�brain surgery. Bashir also peers into the mind of a woman who eats out of control while she sleeps. The brain's mysterious relationship with food closes out the series.

James Goldston is the executive producer of "Nightlineprime."
