(Silver Spring, MD) - From little white lies to that "forbidden fruit" we can't help but devour, sins manifest themselves daily in our actions and choices. But when the basic desires of human nature come up against the darkest corners of the human soul, these temptations can often be fatal. Investigation Discovery's DEADLY SINS examines the true evils that push everyday individuals beyond the limits of the law. From gluttony and greed to lust, envy, sloth, wrath, and pride, this series reveals scandalous crimes driven by the most basic of human instincts. Guiding viewers through these deadly deeds is attorney Darren Kavinoky, a criminal behavior expert who provides professional insight and legal expertise in his analysis of each case. The seven-part series, DEADLY SINS premieres Saturday, March 3 at 9 PM (E/P), leading into ongoing premieres of SCORNED: LOVE KILLS at 10 PM as part of Investigation Discovery's "Red Hot Saturdays" programming lineup.

"Investigation Discovery prides itself on sensational storytelling techniques and, accordingly, DEADLY SINS is the perfect addition to our programming, exploring the most basic origins of evil," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "The series reveals the wicked ways of men and women who will stop at nothing to feed their lascivious and, often, lethal desires."

Each episode of DEADLY SINS features two different stories driven by the same excess of an unbridled particular passion. The premiere episode, "Greed," shows how the need for extremes can drive people to lie, cheat, steal or, even, murder. The first story tells the tale of Tina Loesch, a woman disinherited from her father's will after she takes on a female lover. Consumed by an insatiable desire for wealth, the pair devises a plan to rob Loesch's parents of all of their money - by way of cold-blooded murder. However, greed isn't always about money, as seen in the second half of the episode which explores the need to possess another human being. When troubled 15-year-old Susan Bolling starts a relationship with her psychologist, Dr. Felix Polk, who is twenty years her senior, doom is written from the start. While the two have a seemingly loving marriage for more than twenty years, behind closed doors it is a cruel and controlling environment, where the only end in sight leads to the most unforgivable sin of all, murder.
