[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


(Silver Spring, MD) - Family gatherings at Thanksgiving can be dangerous, especially if there are wives with knives. Be careful, but pull up a chair and join other viewers of Investigation Discovery's third annual BLACK WIDOWS WEEK, a weeklong web of wicked women rounded out by the second season premiere of FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG. In the six-part series, former F.B.I. criminal profiler Candice DeLong interviews real femmes fatales whose stories have been featured on ID's hit show DEADLY WOMEN. In each episode, DeLong goes behind prison walls to reveal the candid, sometimes shocking story of love and betrayal from the point-of-view of the woman herself. FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG premieres with back-to-back episodes on Friday, November 25 at 9 & 9:30 PM (ET).

BLACK WIDOWS WEEK spins a programming marathon of Investigation Discovery's DEADLY WOMEN from Monday, November 21 to Sunday, November 27 at various times throughout the week. DEADLY WOMEN, which also features expert commentary from Candice DeLong, is currently in its fifth season as one of Investigation Discovery's longest-running and most popular original series.

"With a storied career that includes treating mentally ill women and putting murderers behind bars, Candice DeLong has a real knack for extracting shocking, emotional truths from the women featured on FACING EVIL," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Investigation Discovery always strives to answer the tough question of why a crime was committed, and DeLong's biting questions for each mate-murdering missus will surely give viewers the answers they crave."

The first two episodes of FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG include:

Horseplay and Hired Guns

Premieres Friday, November 25 at 9 PM ET

In 2005, Patricia Olsen discovered her husband, Neil, dead in the barn where he housed his horse. With his head bludgeoned beyond recognition, Patricia tearfully dialed 911. At first, cops theorized that Hannah the horse may have trampled Neil to death. Yet, as the investigation soon yielded, there was an unthinkable, twisted plot of greed, revenge and murder behind Neil's death. Patricia's son, Chris, confessed to shooting his stepfather but claims it was under Patricia's instruction. The allegation convicted her of first-degree murder. Having denied her involvement since the beginning, Patricia tells her story to former F.B.I. criminal profiler Candice DeLong. Did the justice system get it right, or is Patricia an innocent woman wrongfully convicted of her husband's murder? Location: Lanesborough, MA

Fatal Fortune Hunter

Premieres Friday, November 25 at 9:30 PM ET

Celeste Johnson knew she had hit the jackpot when she met millionaire TV executive Steven Beard. She was a waitress at the Austin Country Club and he was her favorite patron. One day, Steven asked Celeste to move in with him, and they soon married at the country club that brought them together. Steven even adopted Celeste's twin teenage daughters. But when police responded to a bizarre 911 call from a discombobulated Steven and discovered he had been shot in his own bed, ballistics tests lead straight to a shocking suspect. The culprit was Celeste's secret lesbian lover, Tracey Tarlton. Celeste claimed they were just friends and denied enlisting Tracey to commit murder, but she was found guilty and sentenced to life. Former F.B.I. profiler Candice Delong talks face to face with Celeste to find out the truth. Was this senseless murder Celeste's idea, or is she an innocent woman failed by the justice system? Location: Austin, TX
